Year 7 Netball Tournament
We had 2 teams who took part in the Spen Valley netball tournament on Wednesday 21st March at Westborough High School.
The A team played 3 matches against Mirfield Free Grammar, Batley Grammar and Westborough High School respectively. The team played really well and were able to dominate throughout demonstrating good attacking and defending skills, we intercepted the ball well and capitalised on our opponent’s mistakes. Our shooters worked well together in the circle scoring a total of 11 goals in their 3 games. Having won all 3 of their matches the A team progressed into the final against BBG.
The final was a very close game with both teams playing well, again we defended well and dominated the centre third of the court but just couldn’t get the ball into our shooters. With BBG leading 2-0 we managed to pull one goal back, however, despite having a few more chances to score the ball just didn’t seem to want to go in the net and BBG managed to score a third goal which saw them win the tournament 3-1. A valiant effort by the team despite very cold and windy conditions.
The B team played 2 games in their group, winning against Whitcliffe Mount 1-0 we then lost our second game 4-0 to BBG. This did see us finish second in the group meaning we qualified to play in the 3rd place play-off against Mirfield Free Grammar. It was a difficult game for the girls and a big ask as we now only had 6 players which gave Mirfield a big advantage. They capitalised on this and won the game quite convincingly 4-0.
