Netball v Nonsuch School

Two Netball Teams made up of a combination of Years 10 – 12, travelled to Nonsuch School on Wednesday evening for a friendly Netball Fixture. Parts of the two matches were played outdoors while the light allowed it – and then the games moved indoors. Before we went indoors the ‘Senior’ Team were 4 – 3 ahead and the U16/U15 Team were 3 – 1 ahead. The playing conditions were difficult because of the light but both teams adjusted to working with different team members and displayed moments of good, flowing play.

Moving indoors the U15/U16 Team continued to forge ahead and won the match 5 – 3. Good shooting from Irvana and Emilia along with good connecting play from defence into attack allowed this team to stay ahead. Treynelle was named as Player of the Match by the opposition. The Senior Team found it more challenging playing indoors and, despite playing well, made some mistakes which allowed the opposition to gain an advantage and take the lead. Old Palace lost by three goals but played well in patches throughout the game. Demi was named as Player of the Match for her consistent work and interceptions in defence.

It is always good to see the Senior students dedicating time to physical activity – such an important thing to do despite being busy as it is a great way to keep your mind healthy!
