On February 8, Bridgewater U11 team visited Abbot's Hill to play a friendly Netball match against our A and B sides. As a result of the snow both matches were played inside with the A and B teams alternating halves so that each team had a full 20 minutes of play.
The A team got the match underway with some excellent passing and transitioning of the ball down the court. With two goals in the first quarter the Abbot's Hill side were comfortably in control of the game by half time and were able to practise the skills which they have learned in recent weeks. Most notable was Alex A whose patient approach to the match ensured that she held her space well and was able to use the surrounding area of the court to the maximum, as a result she was nominated MVP for the A team.
The B team then played for the remaining two quarters, and dominated the attacking end of the court through some exceptional passing and good use of space. The ball was transitioned well through the mid-court only seeing the defensive end on the odd occasion. The attack players made the most of the opportunities available to them to shoot and as a result scored an additional four goals in the third quarter and two in the final, making the end result 8-0 to Abbot's Hill. Particular mention ought to go to Isabella M who was nominated MVP as a result of her excellent shooting and good movement around the goal circle.
A huge ‘Well done' to all players in what was only their second match of the season.
