U13A Girls Netball Success

What an amazing day out.  The girls lost their first match 4-6 in a disappointing display against strong club opposition.  I think they were struggling after the 2.5 hour journey to St Hugh’s.  After that we played St Hugh’s A team and were equally disappointing in the first half losing 0-5.  From this point there was not stopping us.  We overhauled St Hugh’s and actually overcame the deficit and won 8-6 in a fantastic display of confident, quick netball.  The remaining group matches were won 12-1, 11-0 and 8-5.

We had qualified for the main event – The Cup Final against the first team played in the first round and lost two.  We were a little nervous but all the pressure was on Horncastle Belles who were the favourites.  In a tight first half we were quite cautious, but managed to stay focused and won convincingly in the end 9-5 to hoist the trophy.  A great day for the girls and a real indication of how far they have come over the last 2 years.

It was a very proud moment for me!
