On Tuesday Suttons primary had it's first netball match against Elm Park Primary. It was an away match so after school on Tuesday 10 eager and excited children travelled on the mini-bus to Elm Park.
When we got there we knew we would have a challenge as most of the children were in year 5 and 6 and very tall. But we were excited for the game ahead. Elm Park had a good start and scored 3 goals but we got one back thanks to some excellent passing from Mia (yr4), Ifa (yr6) and Lucy (yr4) and scoring from Ruby(yr4). The next quarter started well and although Elm Park scored a few more we got two goals back thanks to some brilliant shots from Frankie (yr6). Isabella (y6), Zena (y5) and Wumi (yr4) did an excellent job in defence and intercepted many balls. In the last quarter our super subs, Henry (y4) and Zain (yr4) gave the game us excellent speed and passing and we almost had a few more goals. Unfortunately we lost 10-3 but all the children played so well and we were really please with our first match. We are looking forward to playing some more game next term.
Thank you to Mr Gentle for taking us, Mrs Humphries for umpiring and all the parents who came to support.
