Year 7 Netball
The Year 7 netball teams played Stanwell at home on Tuesday November 17th. After an amazing victory over Ysgol Bro Morgannwg the previous week, the girls were excited to take the court.
In the A Team match, Stanwell started strongly and despite some excellent interceptions from Georgina Cole and Mia Davies in the circle, they quickly got the score board under way. Laura Hawkins at Centre, and Kate Parry at Wing Attack worked tirelessly to bring the ball in to the attacking end for Alys Hale and Aimee Eason to capitalise but the Stanwell defence were solid and they led the way 5-2 at half time. In the second half, Aimee Eason moved out to Goal Attack and controlled the attacking circle perfectly to unnerve Stanwell. Vivian Yip Wing Defence and provided some much needed support down the court. It was a solid yet controlled second half for Cowbridge who were determined to pull back the goal margin, and they did! The score in the second half finished 5-5 showing great resilience! However due to the strong first half from Stanwell they took the overall win with a final score of 10-7.
Well done to all the girls who played.
Due to the amazingly encouraging numbers in training each week, we fielded a B1 Team in the first half and a B2 Team in the second half to give as many girls as possible a chance to play for the School. Cowbridge had a great first half and went in at half time 1-0 up thanks to a superb goal from Megan Rees and some excellent defending from Bethan Light and Hannah Robins. In the second half, Cowbridge started well with an early goal to take the score to 2-0. This however gave Stanwell the drive they needed to forge ahead with greater conviction and they quickly scored three successive goals. The final score finished 3-2 to Stanwell.
Well done to all the girls! It was lovely to see so many pupils out representing the school!
