U13 Read v Queen Margarets U14C
On Saturday 25th March Read Under 13s played the last match of the netball season against Queen Margaret’s. After a quick warm up and team talk we began the match. We got off to a great start by scoring two goals however, Queen Margaret’s came back by scoring a goal. We then managed to slip in another goal before the whistle blew! In the second quarter everyone was hot due to the weather, but we were determined to play our best. Libby Ansdell helped us score the two goals but Queen Margaret’s had scored as well. Going into the third quarter we knew we had to keep trying. We played hard and with good defensive play from Gabby Athraby, Olivia Crossley and Lily Handforth we had stopped a lot of goals from getting in! We had scored, but Queen Margaret’s weren’t going to stop trying so they scored twice. In the last quarter Queen Margaret’s managed to equal out the scores at one point. The shooters, Martha Love and Polly Brooks were under pressure to score. All our hard work had paid off as we scored two goals! The final score was 8-7 to the Read girls, Gabby Athraby was given player of the match.
