This was the Year 9s last game before tour next week.
The team consisted of Issy B, Megan F, Mary S, Holly Y, Abbie B, Rosie D, Jess C, Ruby Ir and Bailey P.
The girls got off to a great start with Rosie D and Abbie B working hard to get the ball into the circle to Jess C. Kings High play was very fast and accurate and Issy and Megan had to work hard in the defensive circle and made some great interceptions leaving the score 7-4 to Kings.
Kings High started the second quarter a lot quicker than Southam and this saw them take a good lead. However, Southam continued to push and played some good netball but speedy play saw Kings High pull the lead to 16-6 at half time.
The third quarter saw a very low scoring quarter with some great defending down the court from all players. Some great interceptions from Mary Stewart saw Southam turn over the ball on several occasions but struggled to get the ball into the attacking circle. The score at the end of the third quarter was 20-7.
Southam continued to defend as a team in the last quarter and put pressure on Kings High play which forced them to make errors. The girls began to work better as a team throughout the last quarter and saw them play better netball as they had done in the first quarter
The overall score of 28-11 didn’t reflect the game as the team played some great netball. However, we left the game aware of errors we need to improve on ready for PGL.
Well done girls, proud of you as always.
