Our Winning Netball Team

Netball Report by Rose, Lily and Ellena

On Sunday 11th of June, a group of year 5 and 6 girls went to St Mary’s Parish Gala. Their names were Lily Hodgkinson, Rose Hartley, Ellena Wilkin, Ava Searle, Lucy Swarbrick, Molly Parsons, Gracie Kaye and Tilly Weston. Our first game was against Chetwynde A, which Mrs Little thought would be our hardest game we played extremely well and beat them 1-0. Our next game was against Pennington. We were quite worried about this game because we had seen them play and they were an outstanding team. We played our best but we sadly lost 4-0. However they were an all Year 6 team and they had some tall players. Our third game was against Penny Bridge,they were a very good team but we played better on the day and beat them 3-2 it was almost a draw but one of our players scored in the last second. Next we played Church Walk. They had lost all of their games so far, so we expected to win. But, they went 1-0 up in the second half. Tilly Weston scored an excellent goal in the last ten seconds to make it 1-1. Mrs Little came and told us that we were through to the semi-finals! We were all so happy! We played Chetwynde B next, we played exceptionally well we all tried our best and beat them 4-0. We were so happy we got through to the final we had to play Pennington which we had lost to in the last match. We had to beat them to win when the referee blew her whistle she announced the score it was 2-0 we were so happy that we had won we got a beautiful trophy and a medal each. We had played so well and we were very proud of ourselves.
