DO THE DOUBLE!
What a superb days netball.
Craigclowan girls take both trophies at
the Ardvreck tournament.
U-13 Team (A)
The U-13 girls arrived at Ardvreck raring
to go. The first match was against Fettes.
Our girls kept their heads throughout the
10 minute game and although they started
a little nervous, they went on to win 52.
Next they played Strathallan which they
beat comfortably 7-1.
After that the girls had grown in
confidence and began their next match
against Kilgraston. With good midfield
and defence work, our girls won 72.
The final game was against Ardvreck, by
winning this would put the U-13s into the
final. Thankfully everyone kept their
heads and worked hard gaining another win
final was against Fettes, but our girls
knew that if they kept calm and focused
then they would win. The first half could
have gone either way. Opportunities were
won and lost by both attack and defence.
At half time it was 3-3.
In the second half, the girls kept
focused, with encouragement from Sandie,
they pulled themselves ahead with some
excellent circle passing between the
shooters. The final whistle blew and our
girls had won a very tough contested
U-11 Team (A)
As usual the U-11 girls were very excited
and confident when they arrived at
Ardvreck. The first match was against
Fettes, who made our girls look small.
They started a little nervous, then once
they had scored their first goal, they
knew they could win and they did
72. Next they played
Edinburgh Academy, and with ease they won
170. After that
the girls had grown in confidence and
began their next match against Kilgraston,
they played really well and won 114.
Our U-11s had already made the final by
this stage, but they still had to play
Ardvreck. Ardvreck had to win this match
to play in the final. Unfortunately for
them, we were on a roll and the U-11s
played really well to win 10-0
final was against Fettes, and even though
they had beaten them earlier, that meant
nothing. They remained focused in the
first half and took a very commanding
lead, not allowing Fettes to score. They
went into the second half with a 7 goal
cushion. In the second half, Fettes came
back really strong and at this stage Mrs
Grant was feeling pretty nervous! However,
the final few minutes, the attack picked
up and the final score was 114.
the U-11 girls played their socks off and
it was obvious from the results they had
worked hard special mention to Isla
Patterson, who was outstanding on the day.
What a shooter! As coaches we are very
proud of the girls and many thanks to all
the parents who came to watch
does make a difference!
