Player of the Match:

The Under 9 'B' team were excited to play in their third match of the netball season and despite the chilly conditions were keen to get the match underway.  We got off to a steady start with much of the play in Swanbourne's attacking third.  Despite numerous attempts on goal Swanbourne were unable to secure a goal until the second quarter thanks to great defending from Diya Karwal and Lacey Weatherley.  The girls grew in confidence throughout the game with excellent movement from Avni Madan and great attmepts on goal from our shooters.  Despite the girls best  attempts we were unable to secure a goal against Swanbourne leaving the final score 1-0.

The Grove 'B': 1
Swanbourne House 'B': 0
