U11 Netball

On Wednesday the 29th of January, the U11 Netball team made the journey to Launceston to play against St. Joseph’s. The day was surprisingly bright and sunny and entirely conducive to outdoor sport. The squad were feeling energetic and positive and this showed in their approach to the game. The match was fast-paced and the possession was equally shared. Both teams made fast and accurate interceptions and footwork infringements were kept to a minimum. Lydia scored a tremendous goal from distance and Elsie worked hard in defence to keep the ball out of our attacking third. Keira, playing in her first match for Shebbear, was excellent as Goal Keeper and moved around the court with athleticism and awareness. The whole team worked cohesively and effectively and the match resulted in a 3 – 3 draw. A fair result. Players of the match were Elsie and Keira.
