On Monday 3rd October, the A team netball squad went to St. Mewan to play their very first tournament. This was also the first time they had played as a team this year.. There were four other schools at the tournament, here’s the results:
Carclaze 8 – Mount Charles 3 Bishop Bronsecombe 1 – Mount Charles 2
St Mewan 5 – Mount Charles 2 Pondhu 4 – Mount Charles 5
We had some great goals from George, Tineasha, Jude and Jasmine. All the children kept their spirits up and worked really well as a team. Sadly, Mount Charles did not qualify for the next round of the tournament. However, we are really pleased at coming 3rd out of 5 schools. The whole team played extremely well and kept smiling the whole time!! The A team netball squad consisted of Gracie, George, Jude, Lilyah, Lizzy, Jasmine and Tineasha.
Netball away against Carclaze 4th October – A team – George, Lizzy, Jasmine, Gracie (C), Aleeah, Lilyah and Jude
Carclaze have a great A team and gave us a tough start to the game. We went into the third quarter 5 – 0 down. We put up a good fight in the third quarter, but unfortunately we couldn’t get any goals. In the final quarter, Carclaze managed to score 3 more goals, leaving the final score as 8 – 0 to Carclaze. It was a well deserved win, they gave us a tough game: we just couldn’t quite get it in the net and needed to get in front of their super speedy and tall players. Player of the match goes to Gracie.
B Team – Jess (C), Eva, Dexter, Owain, Katie, Ella, Charlie and Harry
This was a tricky game as the majority of the team had never played before. There was a lot to take on board as they remembered their positions and which way we were going as well as fighting the wind! The first quarter remained goalless. In the second quarter, Ella scored a fantastic goal, but unfortunately Carclaze managed to score two goals. In the third quarter, Jess managed to score a goal, meaning that the score was 2 – 2. We did a great job of moving the ball down the court but unfortunately we couldn’t get any goals in the final quarter. However, Carclaze scored three more goals, leaving the final score as Mount Charles 2 – Carclaze 5. Player of the match goes to Ella.
