Every Tuesday afternoon from 4:30 the year 6 to 8 students from each School participate in netball games. Each netball game is held at the ami netball courts. The Year 8 Pt England school Souls team which is my team played against St Kents year 8 team. We had played them the previous week and we got thrashed by 24 points. We all knew that we would have to try our very best and even go the extra mile to win the game.
At practice at lunchtime on Friday we learnt how to Value the ball from our Coach (My teacher) Miss Paget. I pretended that the ball was a piece of Cottage Pie to help me value the ball even more. At practice we were playing half court. Miss Paget taught us that as soon as the whistle gets gos find a space a receive the ball.
After practice we all had a drink of water a planned our positions for Tuesday afternoon. I am always GA. So that means that I am a shooter. Days past Tuesday came and our netball games started at 5:05 o clock. The first quarter started all the whistles blowed. As soon as our Ref said “Play” we were off. I first found a space. I stepped and swerved with the wind and received the ball. I snatched the ball out of the air and lobbed the ball just behind Raeleen so she could just step back into the space and catch the ball.
Everything was swirling around inside my head. I suddenly caught focus and ran into the shooting circle. Raeleen Passed the ball to Faaoune She received the ball from slightly outside the circle. I got free into a space and and caught the ball in mid air I jumped up my knees clashed together I felt a shock. I valued the ball. I thought and concentrated very hard a pushed the ball up into the air just above the hoop and got the goal everyone cheered.
It was St Kents ball when the whistle went I zoomed out a defended my player. When she received the ball I stood back put my arms up and made monkey noises to try and put her off. It didn’t work. They had the ball and passed it down into
the circle and got the goal. The three other quarters passed it has a hard and tough game. We were a tie. 10 all. We tried so hard It was a very very good game!
