Northampton High school was the venue for the girls first netball fixture of the season for the U9 A team. It was a bit of a grey cold afternoon but the girls were on a high. From the start of the game the grove girls were on fire with some quick passing to allow Summer O’Kane and Emily Foster to both score in the first quarter to give us a 2-0 lead. In the second Quarter Northampton High School pushed hard and only some strong defending from Autumn Pim and Lilly Gibbin kept the score at 2-0 at half time. In the third and fourth Quarter, The Grove were back on top and dominated the game with Summer and Emily scoring two more each. The whole team played an excellent match with the final score being 6-0 to the Grove.

The B team started the match a little nervously which Northampton High School were able to capitalise on, scoring quickly to open up an early lead. We grew in confidence as the match went on and as a result Lacey was able to secure our first goal of the match. The girls were a little tentative about driving in front of their opponents initially, relying on overhead passes which Northampton High School were able to take advantage of and score a further 3 goals to open up the lead. In the 3rd quarter the girls were much more more assertive about moving in front of their partner allowing Diya to score our second goal of the game. Sadly the lead opened up by Northampton High School was just too much for the girls to pull back leaving the final score 5-2 to them. What an exciting game girls I was delighted by how much you improved throughout the game – well done!
