A great start to the Netball season for teams at Bishop’s
We have been able to get Netball fixtures up and running again for the first time in a few months which has seen some great results from both new and existing teams in Years 7-11.
Thursday 7th October – Home game vs Chancellors. Teams involved 9A and 9B. The 9A and 9B team had their first game since Year 7 and a lot of new faces in both the A and the B teams. Attendance at club has been brilliant with around 25-30 girls attending each week which has helped to drive the standards even more so well done to all girls who have been coming to club so far. Result 9A won 9A won 10-7 and 9B won 13-6 with Player Of The Match for the 9A team – Erin M and Player Of The Match for the B team was Amelia T. Well done everyone!
Monday 11th October – Away game vs Chancellors. Teams involved – 7A, 7B, 8A and 8B. The first ever BHGS Netball fixtures for all 4 of these teams with some very excited pupils (and staff) at the prospect of more competitive Netball games! The 7A team did very well and certainly found their rhythm into the 3rd and 4th quarters to just miss out on the win with an 8-6 loss. Player Of The Match was Amara C. The 7B team also did well in their game and grew in confidence to lose 6-3 in the final quarter. Player Of The Match was Annaliese A. The 8A team dominated from the first quarter and did very well (even when a few positions were changed to rotate the squad) to win 2-16. Player Of The Match was Mia C. The 8B team did well and showed great teamwork in a much closer game, particularly in the last quarter, to hold out for a 6-7 win. Player Of The Match was Grace M.
Thursday 14th October – Home game vs Monks Walk. Teams involved – 8A and 9A. Both teams continued their unbeaten run this season with strong wins against Monks Walk. There was some excellent flow of play in both games, particularly the 9A team who had some unenforced positional changes due to absence. 9A won 36-2 and Player Of The Match was Gracie B. 8A won 18-1 and Player Of The Match was Mia C.
Monday 18th October – Away game vs Monks Walk. Teams involved – 10A and 11A/11B. With limited games for both age groups this year, it was a good opportunity to take two larger squads to this fixture. The 10A team had a few new faces in the team with some girls from the GCSE PE group making their Netball team debut. The girls did well considering how many new pupils there were in the squad and they tried some different combinations. Final result 11-4 to Monks Walk and Player Of The Match was Scarlett B. The 11A and 11B teams went over and played a half each against the Year 11 Monks Walk team. Numbers at training have been fantastic – particularly with all of the other extra commitments and school work the girls have had to juggle so it was a great opportunity for all of the girls to get some game time. The game showed some excellent consistency, footwork and attacking play – well done Year 11. Final result 9-13 to Bishop’s.
Fixtures after half term – Tuesday 2nd November – (H) vs Mount Grace – 7B, 8B and 9B teams only. 3:45pm start. Monday 8th November – (A) vs Stanborough – 7A, 8A, 9A and 11A teams only. 3:45pm start.
