Year 9 Netball (6) vs Wells Cathedral (18)

On Wednesday the 14th of March Kings of Wessex faced a tough opponent in a competitive match. Wells Cathedral had a very strong team and played a tactical match, coming out on top with a score of 18-6. But although Kings were defeated we managed to improve our defensive playing throughout the match.

To begin with we were holding Wells of at a steady draw of goals, as the game continued our opponents strove for more and gradually gained leverage over us.

Our attack was strong with some great goals from Erin Watkins and Abi Campbell. Not to mention our defence who worked incredibly hard to intercept pass after pass. Especially Sassi Carrington and Amélie Lacassin defending the goal. Great play was also demonstrated by Lucy, Jodie and Libby as they fought their hardest to get infront, often overcoming their strong markers in the centre third.

Overall although it was a loss for Kings we worked well as a team and continued to grow strength in our playing as each quarter passed, well done Girls!
