v Brambletye 14-13
Quite my favourite tournament of the year; this really shows the standard of our senior netballers as all-round players of the game. Each girl played superbly in all areas of the court.
We were clear victors in each match leading to the final. In this match we were tested to our limits. At full time the score was 7-7, after extra time the score was 10-10. This then led into golden goal territory; a well fought length of almost two minutes with possession being won and lost in equal measures. We had more shots at goal and after what seemed like an eternity Emma slotted away the winning goal!
The 1st team definitely deserved to secure this tournament win after a season of very near misses! Girls, I am so proud of you! PMc
Netball v Worth
2nd VII Drew 10-10
Today the girls played an equally matched Worth team. We started off well in the frst quarter with some good defence from Patricia and Alice and some good interceptions were made by Adel and Nina. By half time the score was 5-4 to Worth. At half time the girls were told that they were playing wth great potential but needed to tidy their game up and not givie the ball away due to inaccurate passing.
After half time the girls really started to play well tightening the game to 7-6. Some great shots were made by Zene and Marriana and some good interceptons by Alejandra. With the last 20 seconds to go Ashdown were leading 10-9. Unfortuately a brilliant interception made by Worth enabled them to get the ball down to their goal third to equalise the game.
Girls you played really well today. You have improved so much over the season. Well done! AdeH
Under 12/U11B Won 24-13
Worth brought a number of reserves to this afternoon’s fixture which meant lots of substitutions and position changes. Because of this, they found it difficult to develop the flow of their game and so each quarter was like a short tournament match.
The first quarter was tight with Worth defending well. We were only 5-4 up after ten minutes.
In the second quarter, we dominated rather more with Carmen, Sarah and Issy linking passes very well. Lucy’s shooting was on point and Alisa defended furiously. Worth made it a little too easy for her to intercept in the centre third. Both Maudie and Delilah performed well. Accurate passes, secure footwork and confident marking from them both. At half time, we led 12-7.
The third and fourth quarters were electric from both teams. Lots of interceptions, snatching and shots taken. We led 18-8 after the third quarter and 24-13 after the fourth.
Alisa was nominated girl of the game. VM
