The year 9 Netball team played for their place in the league final against NLS on Wednesday 11th March 2020. The game was fantastic with each of the teams scoring end to end in the first quarter, score 3-2. In the second quarter Southam played some of their best Netball; defence was tight; the attacking play was slick and the shooting was on point. This allowed Southam to move comfortably into the lead, score 10-4. In the third quarter Southam managed to just hold on to the lead but NLS defended brilliantly and took advantage of this in their attacking play, score 11-8. The final quarter did not go our way; the quarter was tense and finished in a draw. The match was to be decided by ‘the next goal wins!’ Both teams fought hard, with the ball moving frantically up and down the court giving both the teams several opportunities to close the match. In the end NLS just managed to hold out and scored the winning goal! Final score 13-14 to NLS. Thank you to all the girls who played the match and thank you to all the girls who have assisted along the way in their commitment to training and representing Southam College in other matches we have played.
I am very proud of you all, as I am always! Miss Evans.
