Our Netballers played in the Wilmslow Netball Tournament, hosted by Ashdene. The teams were divided into 2 groups, each group containing 2 large schools and 2 small schools.
Our first game was against St Annes and the team played some great netball with many attempts on goal but despite a great goal by Caterina we lost to a good St Annes team.
The next game was against Gorsey Bank. Our team were the strongest, keeping possession in our shooting third for most of the game, but despite numerous attempts on goal we were, rather like Man Utd, unable to finish and the game resulted in a draw.
Our last game was against Styal and once more, St Benedicts had all the possession, with some great defensive play and forward attack resulting in a goal scored by Emily. We let our guard down only once, allowing Styal to get the ball into their shooters who equalised just before the end of the game which cost us a place in the semi finals.
The team played exceptionally well and were great ambassadors for the school and for sport. Mrs Rowley, Mrs Grace and all the parent supporters were very proud of the way they played and conducted themselves.
Players representing the school on this occasion were: (Y6) Amy, Caterina, Emily, Megan, Molly, Tayla and (Y5) Sophie.
Player of the tournament goes to Emily Loynton for fantastic defending against St Annes.
