Well, it was week Two of the netball calendar and we are still going strong!
Well done to everyone who played on Saturday against St Gabriel’s.
A clean sweep of wins for all teams felt pretty good and some great netball was played. Saturday mornings really are about putting what we have done as teams and individuals in training throughout the week into a competitive game and continuing to build partnerships, friendships and sportsmanship within the squad.
Congratulations to the U12 netball squad who won their first SnS National Netball Cup fixture against Fallibroome Academy 14-11. Well done girls.
Well done to the Year 9 Netball Team who beat St Monicas 22-7 in their league fixture and the Y10 Netball team who came through a tough match to secure a 22-17 win. Excellent shooting accuracy by Katie P and defensive pressure by Eleanor L and Lucy J enabled us to pull ahead when needed in the dying moments of the game.
The Year 9 rugby team won their first game of the 2019/20 season against a tough and persistent Bury Church side. Well done to all those involved.
The U14 team started very well moving the ball around a very talented Kings Chester side. An early penalty gave Kings the lead and a lapse of concentration doubled this soon after. Bury created a well worked goal finishing via Josh Jennings and went into the half 3-1 down. The second half was much different and the boys performed to a stronger standard which saw them control possession and create countless chances. Josh Jennings scored a further two goals to complete his hat trick but Bury fell just short losing 4-3. However, a promising second half to take forward to next week.
The U12 team were beaten by Kings Chester, who started bright with a goal in the first 5 minutes coming from a well struck shot outside the area. Bury were not as patient on the ball as seen in the previous week but managed to create a few half chances. Chester were able to control the play with nice football and soon made it 2-0 before half time. In the second half Bury began to fade and tire as Chester continued to keep the ball well. Bury did have a 10 minute spell where they looked like scoring, hitting the post with a header. However Chester were more clinical in front of goal and the game ended 6-0.
