On Tuesday the 6th of November, the Netball B Team went to SKA to play some matches.  The first match we played was against St. Marks and the first center pass was taken by Stella and an immediate amazing goal was scored by Emily R. It was 1-0.  Alohi, Logan and Cecily, our fantastic defence, didn’t let in a single goal.  At half time Stella was replaced by Bella who played just as well in the second half.  We managed to keep it up and by the end it was 13-0 to us.  The next match we played against St. James A.  Unfortunately we only managed to score 1 goal.  Our defence managed to slow them down while our attackers tried furiously to gain a goal.  It was tough, as they played really well.  In the end we lost 11-1, but we had played really well, sadly not good enough.  Our last match was again really good, both Emily’s scored some smashing goals.  Everyone played amazingly and got the ball down to the goal many times.  Our brilliant defenders Logan, Alohi and Cecily stopped any goals from going in.  It was a brilliant game and we all played well and scored lots of brilliant goals.  By the end of the match we won by an amazing 14-0 to us.  We ended all our matches well with the three cheers.  Thank you to Mrs Simkins and Mrs Gilman for driving us there, Miss Gibson for coaching us and the parents for supporting us.
