U14’s League Finals

On Saturday 6th May the U14 squad faced Raiders in the League finals. Having worked hard all season the team warmed up with a determined and focused attitude and were ready for the challenge.

The game started well with our defenders making valuable interceptions and the attackers delivering the ball to our shooters effectively. Lucy and Katie calmly converted the goals and as the first half of the game progressed we gained a 2 goal lead.

The second half was more challenging with a change around from the opposition team our shooters were suddenly under substantial pressure playing against a very tall and dominating GK. Despite our best effort to maintain our rhythm Raiders crept the scoreline back and in the last quarter inched ahead. The team worked tirelessly to win the ball and played excellent netball but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to win the game. We lost narrowly by 1 goal putting us in second place for the season.

Overall an incredible achievement for this young and talented team who should all be proud of their shiny silver medals! They have been a pleasure to work with all season and I am excited to see these girls continue to progress and develop in the years to come!

Thank you to all the supporters who came to watch the game, you are a hugely appreciated part of the Beacons Family!
