On the 26th of April, eight girls, from the netball team, got chosen to represent St. Cecilia’s in a netball tournament at Westbourne primary school.
At school (before we left), we practiced in the green playground for 20 minutes. We then left school at 13:05 and met up at the hosting school. When we got there, we made tactics and warmed up while waiting for the other teams. Sadly, before we started Preshitha had to leave which meant we were left to 7 girls so if one was hurt we couldn’t play.
Finally, all the schools arrived. We gathered around as the president of Sutton’s netball association explained the different leagues and rules. Our team was in league B alongside three other teams.
The first match was St. Dunstan’s vs Robin Hood and Robin Hood won, which meant they were through to the finals. We had already played Robin Hood and St. Dunstan’s in previous games.
Our first match was against Foresters. In the first two minutes some of us panicked but soon we all calmed down and were up by two in the first half. We all found good space which gave us a great advantage. In the end the score was 5-0 to us. We were in the finals!
In the finals, it was a very tense match against Robin Hood (for the second time) as we scored, then they scored, then we did and them again. Luckily, we scored three more times which gave us victory! We had won the finals for the B league with the score of 5-2.
Anisa was Wing Defence, Liya Wing Attack, Anna was Goal-Keeper, Mary Goal Defence, Ada was Goal Attack (scorer), Rosie was Goal Shooter (scorer) and Rhianna was Centre.
