On Wednesday 20th March, the St Matthews Netball Girls hosted Sundon Park in their third game of the season.
The game was played during the school day so a massive thank you needs to go to their teachers for allowing them out to represent the school.
The Owls came out on top winning 12-4 after a hard fought battle in the first half. The girls are really on a roll now playing some great stuff; they have really developed togetherness and a great understanding of how to play as a team. The girls are showing great commitment practising at both break and lunchtimes to ensure they can be the best they can be. This effort and commitment is paying off as they seemed to have the edge on their opponents so far.
A special mention should go out to Ulani who stepped up at the last minute to play and did an amazing job in both defence and attack. Her teacher Mr Rowlands spoke about her focus and it was clear to see that it had sunk in, she did amazingly well.
The Owls Team: Sienna, Asmaa, Tylah-Marie, Natalia, Ulani, Courage, Aysha
Scorers: Sienna (x4), Courage (x2), Asmaa (x2), Ulani (x2), Aysha, Tylah-Marie.
Player of the match: Courage
After the game Mr Horton said,
“The girls played really well again, they’re doing the school proud but they must continue to work hard.”
Still to play for the girls are Pirton Hill & Chantry over the next two weeks.
