EPS netball team finished the netball season on a high with three amazing matches last week.
The first match was against St. John’s. We went down 1:0 in the first quarter, but excellent mid-field play along the wings from Charlie, Ahmed, T’Jani and Filip fed the ball to Titi, who scored a blinding goal from the edge of the ‘D’. After that there was no stopping us. St John’s tried to pull back but the brilliant defence from Liku, Atarah and Makoura squashed any attempt to equalise. The final score was 4:1.
Next we played St. Chad’s and our confidence was high; we showed that we are well drilled going up 5:1 in the first quarter. Vanessa, Aaliyah and Titi were on form and shot goals with ease. The mid- field held position and our defence was strong which resulted in a 13:4, a very convincing win.
Then, finally we returned to Ark Oval who had beaten us 14-2 in the Spring term. We were nervous and unsettle in the first half and both Charlie and T’Jani took knocks leaving us 3:0 down and two players down. After a reflective half time team talk and excellent play from our subs: Liku, Akeelah and Zaneta, we came back with vengeance and drew 3:3. It was a brilliant match.
I am incredibly proud of this team – they have shown commitment and made outstanding progress over the season, I hope that they continue to play netball in their secondary school. Thank you to all our brilliant parents who have supported us through thick and thin in every match this season.
