2nds Netball v Fettes and Cargilfield

St.Mary’s-9: Fettes-1
St Mary’s- 16: Cargilfield-1
Fettes-4: Cargilfield-3


Captain: Freya


I was delighted to be asked to umpire the triangular fixture where our seconds were to take on Fettes 3rds and Cargilfield 2nds. Each game was split in to 2 x 10 minute halves allowing 20 minutes game time for each inter school fixture.

First up we played Fettes and right from the whistle I believed we had the ability to dominate-unfortunately our shooters were finding it tricky to find their range and despite the ball being consistently fed into the D no goals were scored. The ball did move up to the Fettes attacking D, very briefly, but it was rapidly intercepted by our defence. With the time ticking down the girls eventually got into their stride and quite deservedly won the game 9 goals to 1.

After a brief chat the girls took on Cargilfield-it was to their absolute benefit that they had just played Fettes, for this game was quite superb-a wonderful display of fast flowing, accurate netball. Centre passes were all won and the backline ‘sets’ worked perfectly. I was delighted to observe the progress that these young ladies have made this year-bravo, all!
