Congratulations to the Year 9 and 10 netball teams who have completed their final fixtures for the South East Cornwall netball league with both teams finishing unbeaten and top of the league.

Year 9 played well against Liskeard A in their first match.  Charlotte, Kaci, Marley and Beth defended solidly letting very few passes get in to the Liskeard D. They communicated well with Mia and Holly T who controlled the centre third and fed strongly to Holly M and Keeley who both moved and communicated well together. At half time they realised more control was needed so they slowed their game down and with a fantastic shooting rate from Keeley.

They continued their form against Tavistock with a few changes to the team. Maddie N, Holly T and Keeley defended really effectively, intercepting most attempts by Tavistock to get in to shoot. Beth and Mia passed and moved strongly through the centre third to Bridgette and Marley who timed their movements really well together. Accurate shooting secured a second win of Torpoint 34  Tavistock 4 (Nominated player Bridgette).

Year 10 started their game against Liskeard with some comical and unusual errors in the first half but still leading at half time. After a good half time team talk they settled really well in the second half and showed how much they’ve improved as a team this season. Hannah,  Rosie and Ruby stopping most attempts at attack and controlling play much more effectively through to Lucy and Emily who supported some effective circle play for their shooters. Abi and Maddy’s timing improved quickly to receive strong passes in to the D from Rosie. Shooting accuracy improved as the game progressed with Maddy hitting excellent shooting form in the second half to win.

Against Tavistock A they didn’t make any changes but decided to focus on shape and control which they did really well to win.

A fantastic evening of netball with committed, enthusiastic players who always want to support each other, play their best and have a giggle along the way.

Thank you to Mrs Thomson for assisting with transport and allowing our full squad to travel and play. Much appreciated.
