The whole squad were excellent on defence for the duration of the game with particularly impressive rebounding from Nathaniel Amoako. Some strong offensive play from Max Machen particularly in the first quarter was a highlight with the boys showing some really positive signs for the season ahead.

Girls Netball
Year 9 – SJC

Date: 09/01/18

Opposition: Rickmansworth

Result: Lost 15-12

Team: E.Rowe, S.Narroway, A.Hutchison, M.Hayes, J.Benveniste, B.Patel, A.Elman

Comment: This was a really close game where the lead swapped frequently between the teams. Both defences made it difficult for the ball to be fed into the shooters and every pass needed to count.  It was Rickmansworth who capitalised in the last quarter pulling away to secure victory.

Player of the Match : Jess Benveniste – has performed consistently well all season and in this match.

The year 9 team have done extremely well this year moving up into to the premier league of the WDSA netball league and winning all but 3 of their matches.  Well done girls and Mrs Cartledge on a really successful season.

Year 10 – SJC

Opposition: Rickmansworth

Result: Lost 12-10

Team: K.Gunasegaran, N.Redmond, K.Williams, A.Wells-Harbin, N.Djanmah, C.Lightfoot, A.Finley

Comment: Again this was a really tight match with goals being traded at either end.  With the play fast and energetic from both teams and conditions difficult it was Rickmansworth who pulled away in the last quarter to win the fixture.

Player of the Match : Kaitlyn Williams – excellent passing and energy throughout the game
