Day 6 - Jnr Netball- USA/Barbados

It wasn’t blue skies but torrential rain that greeted us this morning. A sleep in and swim for some before we headed of to Combermere or ‘Rhianna’s’ school for our second games of the tour. While we waited for the suit n to dry the courts we mingled with the opposition, exchanged gifts and learned their team chant.

The koalas were up first today and looking to make up for yesterday’s draw. Our excellent ball pressure and accurate shooting allowed us to jump out to an early lead with all players contributing. As the game progressed, the girls teamwork just got better and better as they adjusted to new team mates and various positions. A great four quarter effort allowed the girls to come away with a big win 33-3.

The team stepped it up today and came out firing on all cylinders. Timing was fantastic and the driving onto the circle made feeding our shooters easy. Strong rebounding was not allowing Combermere any second chances on missed shots. We won 29-4 and have a whole group of beautiful new friends 🇧🇧❤️🇦🇺
