U11A v Barnadiston
Barnadiston began as extremely strong opponents and they were quick to take the lead. St Joseph’s took time to settle into their play.
Emma Logan and Laura Eden worked well in defence- gaining possession of the ball which resulted in St Jo’s scoring their first goal. In the second half St Jo’s came back out confidently and worked hard to get free from their marker. Both Olivia James and Caitlyn Wright took their chances at scoring, bringing the score back to a 4-3 loss.
Player of the match - Katie Roberts for outstanding centre play
v Moreton Hall: In the second game St Joseph’s began strongly with great play from Georgia Campbell-Dunne and Elizabeth Grylls who linked their play well in the centre court with Katie Roberts. At half time St Jo’s were a goal ahead. In the second half the centre passes were accurate which ensured the attacking play flowed into the circle where the girls had numerous chances. In particular Caitlyn’s amazing one-footed shots! Final score 4-2 win.

U11 Netball - B team
Difficult conditions on a sandy pitch made movement and ball handling difficult. Centre court play was quick through Catherine Gillard, Grace Bestley and Hannah McNicholas who made several passes in the circle. Freya Ollason made good defensive decisions but Barnadiston had a very good shooter and the half time the score was 2-0.
St Joseph’s rallied in the second half as Jenny Gilmour came onto the pitch to play at goal keeper and the final score was 3-2.

v Moreton Hall
This game was full of positive play and lots of scoring chances, unfortunately neither team could score in the first half. With all still to play for, the second half play was swift. Especially through the centre where Catherine, Xanthe and Grace were keen and ready to make scoring chances. Louisa Keely and Freya Ollason played very well as a shooting team and Louisa scored to win the match for us. Final score 1-0 win.
POM Freya Ollason for playing at GD and GS
