Year 10 Netball tournament

The girls took part in the Herefordshire Y10 county tournament yesterday at the John Kyrle high school in Ross on Wye.

After a tough game and loss (12-2) against Hereford Cathedral School we managed to qualify for the quarter finals as runners up after beating Whitecross 14-1 and Aylestone 11-1.

Our quarter final game was against Lucton, who we beat 6-2. We were through to the semi final.

We were up against Hereford Cathedral School in the semi finals. After losing against them in the preliminaries, we knew it would be an extremely tough game.

After 12 minutes of play, we had held them to a draw 1-1 but played on for golden goal. After 4 minutes of extra time, and lots of missed opportunities from both teams, Tenbury scored!

We were through to the final against Wigmore! Cold weather, fatigue and injuries started to creep in and Kaitlin Leadbetter came off court with an injury. Still, we were winning 1-0 for the majority of the game. Unfortunately, despite excellent play, the final score was 2-1 to Wigmore.

Huge thank you to Miss Walker for the time she has put in to coaching the girls on a Tuesday lunchtime. They have made fantastic progress and played the best netball they have ever played. We are very proud!
