Our year 6 teacher (Mrs Smallshaw) who runs the netball team had picked the team and for this match had picked : Grace (the captain) along with Hannah, Isabella, Emily, Olivia, Matthew and Oliver.
In our first match we were playing Lower Darwen as the away team. Grace was playing Centre,Hannah was playing Goal Attack, Matthew was Goal Shooter, Emily was Goal Defence and Oliver was Goal Keeper. Olivia and Bella were the Time Keeper and Scorer. Hannah and Matthew were flying! In the first half of the match they managed to score 9 goals so we were winning 9-0! In the second half we swapped the sides we shot at and the players positions . Grace was Goal Shooter, Hannah was Goal Defence, Bella was Goal Attack, Oliver was Scorer, Matthew was Goal Keeper, Olivia was Centre and Emily was Time Keeper. Athough we did pretty well and scored 4 goals, the net was 2 feet too high!!! We were halfway through the game so there was no time to change it. We still won 13-0!
In our second match we were faced with Long Shaw, who were admittedly harder to beat, but with Emily as Centre,Oliver as Goal Attack, Hannah as Scorer, Matthew as Time Keeper, Olivia as Goal Shooter, Grace as Goal Keeper and Bella as Goal Defence. We managed to score 2 goals in the first round but Long Shaw were also at 2 goals so everything was to play for ... In the second half, Emily was Goal Shooter, Bella was Time Keeper, Hannah was Centre , Olivia was Goal Keeper , Grace was Scorer, Matthew was Goal Attack and Oliver Goal Defence. Although everyone was tired, we kept going and beat Long Shaw 5-3! All in all, the netball team were amazing and were the overall winners!
Our next league match is on Thursday 7th November
