Polesworth 3 – Southam 2
Our match against Polesworth went rather well despite a 3-2 loss – everyone worked well together, with good teamwork and clear communication. We all started off a bit nervous as we had never played Polesworth before, however, after our first goal, scored by Aoife Williams, we believed we had a chance in winning! Before half time, Polesworth scored a goal by slipping through our defence, so as the whistle went it was 1-1.
In the second half, Polesworth scored another two goals, but our team had not given up. After many close shots on target, Shauna O’Neill scored a good goal not long before the final whistle went.
Despite a brilliant effort by the whole team and a difficult decision, I decided Shauna and Aoife were the players of the match as they played great together upfront and finished some good counter attacks. They both were strong in different areas, for example, Shauna had some strong runs up the pitch getting through the opposing defence and Aoife had excellent control of the ball with some accurate headers too!
Also, throughout the game I thought that Kacey Cherington held the back four well and made some good clearances. Although she came off injured minutes before the end, Louise Gilks played great too, taking the ball up the wing and passing it into the middle, providing chances for Shauna and Aoife.
Overall, I think all the girls did well and proved to themselves that they did have a chance in winning against Polesworth. Well done everyone!

On Tuesday, the Year 10 Netball A team went to their first of two league nights, feeling quietly confident after last year’s victory at the area tournament. The Squad of nine was made up of Hope Aris, Amy Carro, Jodie Rigg, Clarice Ellis-Greenway, Alice Coles, Jodie Stevens, Marie Pavey, Katie Cummings and Nomie Nicholas.
In the first match the girls came up against Kings High, a strong side with some regional players and the girls did us proud with some excellent centre court play by Nomie Nicholas and Jodie Rigg and some excellent defence from Katie Cummings and Clarice Ellis Greenway . Unfortunately we lost that game 12-2 but still had high hopes for the rest of the evening.
In the second game Southam faced Kingsley, an equally strong side. The girls played well with some excellent shooting from Hope Aris and Jodie Stevens and great passing from Alice Coles. The end result was 5-3 to Southam. The first win of the night.
In the third game the team played Aylesford. Southam were confident about this game as previously they had beaten them. The girls played well with some excellent play from Amy Carro and Jodie Rigg. Clarice and Katie only allowed Aylesford to score 3 goals and amazing shooting from Amy Carro and Marie Pavey with a great match ending 10- 3 to Southam.
In the final game we faced Campion. Southam came out strong with excellent play from all the girls and the game ended with an excellent result of 14-1 to Southam.
Well done to the squad. Keep it up for the next league night and go out and smash it!
Overall the girl of the evening goes to Hope Aris and Amy Carro for their excellent play even when they weren’t in positions they were comfortable in. A Special mention to Marie Pavey and Jodie Stevens who made great shots throughout the evening
Katie Cummings, Year 10
