Tonight the Netball A Team played in the end of season tournament for teams that finished in 1st and 2nd place across the leagues in the Southport area.
The team had to play five games, each only six minutes long. We had a fantastic start with a 7-0 win against Larkfield. We were straight into our next game, winning against Holy Family 6-0. After a short rest we then had to play three consecutive games. The girls followed their strong start with a 8-0 win against St Phillips. This was followed by a 7-2 win against Churchtown. It was all down to the final game against OLOL. They had already drawn one of their games so we just needed a draw. The game was extremely close. Each time a team took a centre pass it resulted in that team getting a goal. With the ball near our end the final whistle was blown and OLOL took the win with a score of 4-5.
It was a outstanding team performance. To score 31 goals in 30 minutes of game time is an amazing achievement. The girls came away with two silver medals each, one for second place in the tournament and one for second place in the league.
It was decided on the day that there should be a special award for 'Outstanding performance', this went to Sofie Jones. Her performance and shooting ability had been recognised by so many people during the tournament. Well done to our fantastic captain.
The girls should be extremely proud of their performance across the season. It has been a pleasure to have a team that always show great sportsmanship and commitment. I'm very proud of you all.
Lastly, a huge thank you to all the parents who have helped with lifts, supported the team and put up with many last minute cancellations due to bad weather.
