Our Year 8s had their first Netball fixture of the season. After some incredible accuracy under the posts from Nicola Ward and Harriet Sale, Sawston took an early lead against Bottisham VC, ending the first quarter 4-0. 

Bottisham switched up their play and came back fighting hard. A few great attacking plays, enabled them to find a gap in our well organised defense, narrowing the score line to 4-3 after the 2nd quarter. 

Despite some incredible runs from our centre court players and excellent support around the D from Alyssa and Arianna,  Sawston were not quite able to break through Bottisham’s defence to work the ball close enough to get another shot on goal.

The game finished 4-10 to Bottisham VC, although this score line does not reflect the quality of our play. For large parts of the game, Sawston were the better team; we just didn’t quite convert this into goals on the day! Onwards and upwards…

POM goes to Lizzy Able for her outstanding defensive work. Following several well timed interceptions, she was able to turn over the possession on multiple occasions and patiently found the best option to play the ball back into the centre court.

Well done to everyone; you should be proud of your first performance, we certainly are!
