Wednesday was our first netball tournament of the term, with the first match played against Wycliffe. We came out very strongly and quickly took the lead, resulting in a 13-3 win.
The next match of the day was against Dean Close, having been thoroughly beaten by them last week we knew we had to come together and play our best. We certainly managed this and won 8-6.
Next up, we faced Tockington Manor. We were the stronger team even though we had a slow start. In the second half, we picked up the scoring and won the game 14-2. We then had a much-needed game off and were able to get ready for a crucial match against The Downs who had won all their games so far.
In the first half, it was an even match with goals scored at both ends. Luckily, in the second half we found a more consistent rhythm and won 8-3.
Cheltenham were our next opponents, who we had only narrowly beaten on Saturday, so we knew it could be a tough game. However, our defence players were strong and our attacker were efficient making it a comfortable 13-1 win for us.
Lastly, we faced Beaudesert. They were more of a challenge than we expected, we got a narrow lead in the first half which then lead to a tight second half, but we secured a win of 10-7.
Success in every match lead to us being winners of the tournament. This was well deserved by all. Thank you to Miss Graveney and Miss Merrien for a great afternoon.
