U9 Netball v Fettes

Wednesday 21st Febuary

St. Mary’s -0: Fettes-7

Great excitement today as all the Form 3 and 4 girls travelled to Edinburgh to play Fettes U9A and B teams.  On arrival, the girls were pleased to find out that they were playing inside.  Warm hands yippee!!!!


After a quick warm up the U9A team got into position on court, quickly identifying their opposite number.  Fettes won the toss, however we soon gained possession and moved the ball up into our attacking third. Celia (GA) and Charlotte (GS) worked well together moving the ball into the D allowing Celia to score our first goal, St Mary’s continued to dominate the play during the first quarter finishing 2 goals up.  Beatrice came on as GS in the 2nd quarter and the strong partnership between GA and GS continued. 
Both teams were evenly matched throughout the rest of the match and possession switched between the teams, Tululah (GK) worked hard to stop Fettes getting into position in the D to shoot, supported by GD, (Nicole in the 2nd and 4th quarters, Lily 1st and 3rd).

Olivia (C) took advantage of the larger netball court intercepting Fettes’ passes in the centre court and passing to Freya (WA) and Zara (WD) who moved the ball into the attacking third.  All the girls were quick to change from playing defensively, marking closely when necessary, to playing in attack, moving away from their opposite number into space to receive the ball.


At the end of a super match St Mary’s finished the winners, 6 goals to 3 a fantastic result.
Charlotte (2 goals), Beatrice C, Celia (4 goals), Freya, Olivia, Zara (Capt), Nicole, Lily, Tullulah.
Very well played girls.
