1st Netball Match Report
Zadie shot like a dream today and Giada moved incredibly well around the attacking third. Their movement around the circle is improving, but still needs some work.
Tara was fast off the line and timed her dodges well. Amalia took up the circle bib and played extremely well. We just need to work on her feeding into the circle. Nina marked with total determination and picked up many lose balls.
Ariel had the game of her life. It is incredible how far she has come in such a short time. Captain Alisa led her team by example making the most of every opportunity.
A lovely set of matches on a beautiful day!

On the 13th of February Ashdown went against both Copthorne and Cottesmore, playing two 8 minute halves against both sides. They first went against Copthorne, they battled through the game hard with Mimosa and Florence working well together with trying to keep the ball up Ashdowns side. Unfortunately the girls lost against Copthorne 19-4. In the second game they versed Cottesmore, the game was a lot closer with the girls working better as team in both defence and attack.The final score ended up being 6-7, Cottesmore winning. Overall the girls worked well together as a team and also had fun playing both matches.

The girls were quite excited about their first quadrangular this afternoon and had lots of questions about how it would work!
First, we played Copthorne B team. They made a strong start scoring two goals in the first half. We then made a few switches and came back to score two as well. The match was well played by both teams. India played superbly as goal keeper in this match, often intercepting the ball.
In the second match we played Cottesmore, with one goal in the first half for them and one goal in the second half for us. I thought Florence played superbly in this match, defending and attacking well, playing as center for the first time.
For the last match we played against Copthorne A team. Copthorne scored three goals in the first half. We started strong in the second half, scoring quite early on, however Copthorne reacted to this and came back slightly stronger to score two more goals. Daisy was fantastic in this match, really trying her hardest to defend and gain possession of the ball.
It was a really fun afternoon, loved by all. I thought the girls played really well as a team. They enjoyed the fast pace of the games and some even competition. LP
