Girls Netball: Denbigh 4 St Matthew’s 2

This season we were lucky enough to enter two teams into the Luton Schools Netball League meaning even more girls get a chance to represent the Owls. This group of girls’ first game was against our friends from across Wardown Park, Denbigh Primary School. The game was very competitive with Denbigh coming out on top with a 4-2 victory.

The game started very well for the Owls scoring two points in the opening six minutes. The points were scored by Maria after some key passes from Daisy & Donna-Karen. Denbigh soon fought back scoring three points in the next two quarters, taking a lead of 3-2 into the final quarter.

The Owls were playing very well and learning so much about the game of netball, Khadija, Karina & Joana made some great blocks and passed the ball up the court well. Amelia & Milly were playing their first game and did very well. Thr whole team competed against a strong Denbigh side, showing great effort and attitude throughout.

Interviews after the game from Daisy, Maria & Joana:

“We had good fun, and thoroughly enjoyed it.”

“We did very well at marking and interception but could have been better at shooting and getting the rebound.”

The Owls Team: Amelia, Daisy, Donna-Karen, Joana, Karina, Khadija, Maria, Milly
