We travelled to Smallwood on Wednesday for our netball match against Denstone Prep School.
On a very quiet court, our match got underway. We passed the ball around quite well but seemed a bit daunted by our away fixture. Nevertheless Kirstie scored 2 goals in the first quarter to Denstone's nil.
The second quarter was much the same as the first. Quiet. Neither teams managed to score and we were barely able to string passes together.
In the third quarter Denstone started to apply the pressure, Grace T-R and Jemima had to work hard. Even with a notable height difference over our opposition, they managed to score 2 goals. Luckily we were getting better passes between us. Grace D was getting into spaces and Evi wasn't panicking as much. Grace W and Kirstie were on the ball and had plenty of shots at the goal, managing to get 3 more in.
We went into the final quarter 5-2 up. Smallwood were now playing strongly, intercepting our passes and marking well. Our defence had to continue to work hard, particularly Harriet who made some fantastic defensive interceptions. Our shooters managed to get two more in the net between them. Denstone managed to get one more making the final score 8-3 to Yarlet. Another excellent win U10's!
