Marshgate win the borough netball tournament

 

On Wednesday 22nd February, the netball team went to the borough tournament. In the morning we played in a group of 6 teams: Old Vicarage, Archdeacon Cambridge, Bishop Perrin, Collis and Orleans. After winning all of these games we went into the cup. Out of 34 schools we were in the sweet sixteen. First of all we played Russell school and we won 5-0. Then in the quarter finals we played East sheen and won 9-0. In the semi finals we played St John the Baptist and won 7-2. Finally, in the final we played the reigning champions for two years: Newland House. After a tough first half, it was 3-3. In the second half we all ran like wind and managed to shoot three goals.

 

The final result was 6-4 meaning Marshgate won the tournament out of thirty four schools and are going on to the London youth games. The winning team is made up of: Skye Swift (6A) (C), Amy Fitch (6M)(VC), Natasha Drake (6M), Lola Ireland (6M), Finn Phillips (6M), Durwin Jain (6S) and Cameron Burges(6A).

Well done to the whole team for achieving this and also to Mrs Antick for training us every week.

Marshgate versus St Elizabeth's

 

On the 8th of December, the netball A team played St Elizabeth on a dark winter’s afternoon. As we warmed up our competitors arrived. Soon the match began; Skye (6A) and Axel (6S) were attacking but we didn’t have much luck, but thankfully Lola (6M) and Durwin (6S) were strong in defence. At the end of the first quarter, which was 6 minutes, the score was 3-1 to Marshgate.

 

After an exciting team talk, St Elizabeth started the second quarter and made the score 3-2. Amy (6M) and Finn (6M) battled back the score to make it 5-3 at the end of the quarter. Meanwhile the B team (which was at St Elizabeth) had an exciting match on their hands. At the end of B teams second quarter the score line was 4-3 Marshgate, as you can see this was a close match as it ended 7-7. 

 

Amy (6M) got the 3rd quarter under-way but unfortunately St Elizabeth got the ball and scored but Durwin (6S) and Natasha (6M) created a comeback after some missed shots.

 

After an exhausting match, the final score was 11-7 to Marshgate. The team that led Marshgate to a victory was:

Skye Swift (C), Durwin Jain (6S), Axel Johnson (6S), Lola Ireland (6M), Amy Fitch (6M), Natasha Drake (6M) and Finn Phillips (6M).
