Girls' Netball: 2nd v Strathallan

Belhaven 5 – Strathallan 2

The 2nds netball team played a wonderful match vs Strathallan on Wednesday afternoon, winning 5 - 2. The girls played excellently as a team, communicating with each other well to ensure the fluidity of their passes up the pitch towards the goal. Alma and Olivia both played  amazing defensive play, intercepting many of Strathallan’s passes, but also attacking by passing the ball quickly and successfully to each other up the court. Victoria, Lilly and Elita did some excellent shooting and worked fantastically as a team to get the ball into the 'D', with particular mention going to Victoria’s enthusiasm and drive to make every ball hers. On the defensive end, Ishbel made some great interceptions, and Bee and Paloma worked hard at marking their opposing player throughout the match. In the opposing 'D' Emilia made some really important interceptions of rebounds, as the ball was then successfully passed back up to our goal again. What was lovely to see was the sportsmanship and kindness of the girls not only to each other, supporting each other when things went well, as well as when they didn’t, but also of the Strathallan girls, their coach commenting on this too. A really nice match to umpire, well done girls!
