Erewash Netball Finals
Our first match was against Grange School and was very exciting!
Yesterday the Year 6 netball team played in the High 5 Finals at Kirk Hallam School. The other 3 teams were Ockbrook, Sawley and the Grange.
Our first match was against Grange School and was very exciting! We scored the first goal but Grange soon equalised, in fact the entire match was played out like this, with one team scoring and then the other team equalising again. Unfortunately Grange were able to get the last goal in before the final whistle and the score was 5-4 to the Grange.
After a quick change of positions, which is a key feature of High 5 Netball, we were ready to play Sawley. This was a very difficult match and Sawley definitely had a clear height advantage!!! We put up a valiant performance with some fast passing and a long range goal scored by Ellie however the final score was 5-2 to Sawley.
Our last match was against Ockbrook. This was our closest match with the final score being 2-1 to Ockbrook.
We finished 4th overall, Grange 3rd, Ockbrook 2nd and Sawley first. The standard was very high and our team did well which is reflected in the very close match scores. They should all be very pleased with themselves!! We are now looking forward to playing some 7 a side friendlies in the Summer term.
Thanks to Mrs White for helping with transport and to all the spectators who came to support. Thanks also to Mr Woodcock for being the photographer!
