Junior Netball Tour UK 2019

Emus

Tonight we took on the combined sides of MK Dons and MK Netters.  We started off slow and took a while to get into our rhythm.  A combination of poor timing and not working hard enough to lose our opponents saw the opposition hold a 4 point lead at the break.  Emus stepped it up in the second quarter and soon reigned in the lead,  we were still not opening the court up as well as we could but some great defensive work and finishing in front of goals saw us take the lead.  In the third quarter a reshuffle of the team did not stop us from maintaining our lead.  It is pleasing to see the team continue to grow and improve with each match. Well done girls.


Kangaroos

Tonight the Kangaroo girls played a mixed match against MK Dons & MK Netters. A focus of tonight’s game was ensuring options were a plenty down the court and to also look after the ball. With this in mind the girls played a closely contested game and came away with a win. Once again the girls have stepped up and improved from their previous matches and the opposition are complimenting how well they are playing as a team despite their lack of time together. Well done Kangas - keep it up.


Koalas

Tonight we were up against Milton Keynes. After a slow start the girls began to find some consistency through the second half of their games. After being 10 goals down at 3/4 time the girls clawed their way back within 1 goal. This was done by an amazing defensive effort by all on court. After building in defence we began to find a rhythm in attack and the ball was flowing with ease down the court. Overall we have built a strong platform for future games and we are excited to see the girls improve on this.
