U16 Netball Team

Loughborough High Schools Foundation was our first opponents, their GS and GK were tall, which was a telling feature of the match. We were very positive though and the game flowed end-to-end throughout. The positive was the ball was fed well into the shooting circle but the negative was we “fell short” in defence. Final score: 4-18.

U16 Netball Competition

After a review of all scores after the first round, QEGS knew that we had a good chance for all of the remaining matches. Next up was Repton. We had a strong start and won the first half with no errors made. This was a tight match that we were unlucky to only draw 5-5. A missed opportunity!

Oundle were to follow. The final score was 11-12 and was another match we should have won as the match is only two halves of seven minutes and yet again we were ahead at half-time, a silly mistake in seven minutes makes a difference to the final outcome.

Still buoyed by what was generally a fine performance, all the girls were playing very well together, even though the team comprised of Year 10 and Year 11 students. Not to be deterred our next opponents were Rushcliffe. Following the trend of leading at half-time our nerve wavered. We didn’t vary the tactics enough and they began to read our moves. We became too predictable and lost 8-12.

So to the final match – the play-off between the top two Lincolnshire Under-16 teams. QEGS going into the tournament as County winners were very confident of maintaining our leading title. Yet again, ahead at half-time, we held on to a fine win against KGGS, 12-9.

Overall, finishing ninth was a harsh but fair result. Those small margins in other matches could have ended up with a top five position. All of our players: Ella, Anna, Daisy, Lydia, Connie, Alice, Kirsty, Katie and Ellie were well challenged, provided answers, played well together and learnt the art of communication on a netball court.

Thanks to Mrs Parsons, Mrs Kemp and Mrs Samra for their help and support and taking us on the day.
