U11b Netball : Belhaven Hill v Loretto

It was a 2.30 start for the match in the sports hall and the U11 b team were raring to go. Lucy, as captain,  won the toss and (with a little prompting) chose to take the first centre pass.

The Belhaven team were quick to find their rhythm and some super passing and marking from Alice, Sophie and Davina allowed the ball to make its way swiftly down to Lucy as goal shooter. Accurate shooting from Lucy meant that Belhaven was at a comfortable 6 - 0 lead by the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter another 6 goals were achieved by both Davina and Lucy.

After half time Loretto changed some of their positions and came out fighting. Amy and Louisa came into their own at this point, defending ably and intercepting a number of important balls and keeping it away from the Loretto attack. Using her height and strength, Emilia produced some super shoulder passes in from the back line and marked the Loretto shooter well throughout the game.

Alice continued to work tirelessly as centre. With strong support from Sophie, she was instrumental in repeatedly recovering the ball and getting it back down to Lucy and Davina. Despite Loretto's determination and fight in the second half, Belhaven continued to score goals, taking the final score to 22 - 2.

Well done girls.
