Girls' Netball: 2nd v Fettes
Netball 2nd Squad
Fettes 12 - 11 Belhaven Hill
In a fast-paced, all action match Fettes just came out in top. Thanks to Belhaven’s fighting spirit though, the gap was dramatically closed in the final quarter ...
It was a tight contest at the start; Bea G stepping ably up to Centre at the last minute as Amelie went to cover in the firsts and did a superb job on her 2nds debut! The girls were all making clever passes, thinking carefully about whether they should play a bounce or shoulder pass and keeping the score close at 2 goals to 3.
At the back, Grace and Bella were a great pairing and giving as good as they got from the Fettes front two! One of their real strengths was playing the ball out quickly from the back and with India and Lucy C as such a speedy WD and WA the ball was getting up to the fabulous attackers - Romilly and Georgie - who were then able to get some more goals.
Fettes took control a little in the 3rd quarter and it looked like they were on course for a flattering win by pushing their score up to 11. A quick pep talk at the final changeover and wow! What a comeback! The defence prevented Fettes getting any more than one goal at the end with all the girls playing exceptionally to help net Belhaven 5 goals in the final quarter! In the end the girls were really unfortunate to lose by just one goal in the end.
Well done for that fighting spirit at the end ladies!
