Double delight for netball squads
Marshalls Park’s year seven A team played Gaynes and won 6-1.
The team started strong with some great play by GD Lilly Hadrava, using her height to intercept everything possible and feeding a long ball through to Amber LeBeau at WA.
Marshalls had great possession of the ball and fed through to shooters Ellie and Yasmin, but in the first half the shots just wouldn’t drop.
In the second half both shooting and rebounding was much better and Marshalls built on their lead.
A special mention to Jessie Ellis who stepped in at GK and played outstandingly, even with a huge height difference.
Player of the match Ellis praised captain Megan Searle who performed particularly performed well, always using space around her and giving people options to pass to her.
Marshalls Park B also played Gaynes and won 6-4.
The game was well fought from both teams and could have gone either way at any point.
Some good defence in the circle stopped the ball being fed easily in, however Marshalls struggled to gain possession and ended up hitting it back to the Gaynes team.
A tactical change of captain Crane to WA and Mills to Centre made a big change in the second half and led to much more ball being fed through to shooters Cristina and Lilly who paired nicely together.
