U11 Netball Tournament at Queen Margaret School

On Friday the 22nd of March, Glebe under 11 girls travelled to Queen Margaret’s to play in a netball tournament.

We first played Belmont Grosvenor which we won 5-0.

Then we played St Pius X Prep School which we also won 3-2.

Our final match of the morning was the hardest. We were playing Queen Margaret’s who were very tall and were a year older than us. They won 5-3 but we played very well.

As we won two of our matches we were in the cup competition which was the best.
We played Cargilfield School, Barnard Castle and Grantham Prep. We lost all of them but I am so proud of the whole team as we came 4th in the whole tournament.

Well done at team.

U11 Netball v King’s, Ely

On Wednesday the 27th of March Kings, Ely travelled to Glebe to play an U11 Netball match. They won the toss and chose first Centre pass. We were missing Sydney so we had Shayla and Maisie in defence and Eliza and Scarlett as subs. We started off well and got the ball into the circle and I scored 3 goals but Kings Ely were strong and managed to score 4 goals. In the second quarter we got into good spaces and scored 2 goals, 1 by me and one by Annabel and with good defence we only let one in making the score 5 all. In the third quarter we were playing really well and scored 3 goals by me but Ely were strong and they scored four. In the final quarter we did really well getting into spaces and doing good passes but unfortunately they managed to score 1 goal making the final score 8-10 to them. Everyone played really well and we have improved a lot since the start of the season but my man of the match is Shayla for picking up a new skill and playing really well in defence. Well done team.

U13 Netball v King’s, Ely

On Wednesday 27th March, King’s, Ely travelled to Glebe for a Netball match. We started the first quarter slowly and kept losing possession of the ball. They were a very strong team and really fast, but we carried on and tried hard. Unfortunately Alice wasn’t able to play, so several people played were playing in different positions and it took us a little while to gel as a team. At the end of the quarter the score was 1 – 5 to them. In the second quarter we continued to try hard and managed to score 2 more goals. Despite great effort from the defence, particularly Emily who was playing Goal Defence, King’s managed to score 6 more goals, bringing the half time score to 3 – 11 to them.
After half time we came back really determined. We scored 4 goals and King’s scored 3 in the third quarter. In the last quarter we were all getting really tired but we carried on and scored 1 more goal and they scored 4. The final score was 7 – 18 to them.

Under 9 Football vs Downham Prep

On Wednesday, the 27th of March the Glebe under nine team went to Downham prep to play football. Downham won the toss and got off to a strong start with many strikes at goal which Freddie Hawkins did well to save. We tried hard in the first Half too but the moment of the match came when Matthew Piggot scored an amazing goal with a huge kick from inside our half. The score at half-time was one all.

After a positive Team Talk from Mr Whitehill we really got stuck in in the second half. There were many shots at goal from Stanley, Matthew and Freddie Hawkins but we were unlucky and didn’t quite manage to score. Downham had many shots at goal too and Sammy made an amazing save by flicking the ball over the crossbar with the tip of his fingers. The final score was 3-1 to Downham.
My man of the match was Matthew Piggot for his amazing goal. Well done to all the team we just need to work on our defence and support in the next match.
