Netball - Elston Hall V Palmers Cross

Team: Millie (Y6) Antonia (Y6) Amelia (Y6) Alfie (Y6) Jewell (Y6) Georgie (Y5) Violet (Y5)

Firstly a massive well done to the netball team who represented Elston Hall in our second match. We knew we were up for a tough game against Palmers Cross as they are an established team who have been playing together for over a year. Palmers got off to a great start and were 2-0 up by the end of the first quarter. During the second quarter Elston fought hard, there was lots of interceptions by both teams and at the end of the quarter it was 3-2 to Palmers. Goals were scored for Elston by Alfie and Jewell. After another swap of positions, the 3rd quarter was a difficult one and the experience of Palmers team began to show as they pulled ahead with the quarter ending 6-2 to Palmers. The final quarter was a great battle. The players were up and down the court and all battled well. The final score was Palmers 7 Elston 2. 


Player of the match: Jewell

Netball

November 2017

Team: Millie (Y6) Tegan (Y6) Amelia (Y6) Kiera (Y6) Jewell (Y6) Georgie (Y5) Violet (Y5)


We got off to a fantastic start and after the first quarter we were drawing 1-1. After a quick change of positions – there is a strict rotation system to follow in High 5 netball – both teams were neck and neck. By the end of this quarter Wilkinson were just ahead 5-4. Another position swap and this quarter involved lots of play in the centre third.  Both teams made lots of interceptions and after a hard fought 6 minutes, the quarter ended  Elston 5 Wilkinson 7. Following a quick breather, the final quarter began. Wilkinson took a bit of lead but the Elston Team fought hard and the final score was Elston 7 Wilkinson 9. 


A huge well done to the girls who represented us in our first netball match, they all behaved impeccably. Mrs Tromans and Miss Fellows were extremely proud of you.
