Year 8 Netball
On Tuesday 17th October, our Emerson Park Academy Year 8 Netball Squad played in three teams against Redden Court.
EPA’s Blue team started strong with a disciplined attack from Maddie R. and Grace G. which enabled Katie W., Daisy S. and Scarlett S. to lead the score line throughout the game, with outstanding performances as GA and GS. Unfortunately, Aurika P. was injured in the third quarter which caused a loss in momentum, but we managed to hold onto our lead with a solid defence from Cerys F., Maddie G. and Olivia P. However, Redden Court stayed strong and battled through in the last quarter; over taking us to win 15 - 10.
EPA’s Green team were faced with a strong attack from Redden Court in the opening quarter, with them scoring three goals. However, EPA remained strong and fought back to finish the quarter leading 5-3. Stand out performances from Yasmin A. and Mia DS. in the position of GA and GS ensured our goal lead was extended, although this would not have been possible without those playing in the centre and our determined defence. A continued push forward to attack resulted in a strong victory with EPA winning 11-6.
EPA’s Red team also put on an outstanding performance throughout, winning in every quarter. Their final result was EPA Red 15 – 5.
Well done to all three teams.
