Our U16 netballers prepared for the regional netball finals with a trip to Denstone on Wednesday.
The fixture really worked on the girls fitness with TAHS travelling with the bare minimum of 7 players, the game was divided into
sixths each lasting 7 minutes.
This had been the first competitive game since before Christmas and the first segment of the game
saw us go behind but towards the end of the 7 minutes the girls had really started to gel and self belief was high for the rest of the game.
The second and third quarter Bella and Louie were much more commanding in the D and were scoring many of their chances
and the lead was down to two goals, still in Denstone’s favour. Jess C and Martha covered a lot of court and kept the tempo high
with lots of composure and great decision making when in possession of the ball. Poppy worked tirelessly as WA for the majority of the game
and provided great feeds into the D for our shooters. Aimee and Jess W did a great job defensively and were able to win many interceptions
and effectively start attacking moves.
At the end of the fourth period we had taken the lead but going into the last segment
TAHS trailed by 2. Denstone’s large squad and fresh legs were the difference with them winning the final segment but the performance was
really high from our girls who showed great tenacity throughout.
