Beacons Squads Starting Strong

Beacons Squads Starting Strong

With the new season starting a few weeks ago, it’s been a fantastic run so far for the Beacons netball squads. They are training hard and having fun at the same time which is what we at Beacons strongly believe in!

The five senior squads have had a busy time since the beginning of the season competing in the North West Kent league. The 1st team had a great opening game on September 8th against New Edition and came out strong with a 47-39 win!

Matches on 29th September saw all the teams working hard and showing a great amount of skill on the court. Beacons 2 gained a win this week after a previous draw, as did Beacons 3 who held their own and secured a win against Abbey Angels, whilst Beacons 4 and Beacons 5 had tough games against Chislehurst and Sabina which meant not a win for either team this time but the experience gained and persistence shown on court was inspiring for all watching and all the girls should be very pleased with how they performed.

Beacons U12 and U14 squads are also completing in the Rising Star junior netball league this year.
Our U12 squad have had a great opening to their first league experience, with two consecutive wins under their belt, they are looking like a force to be reckoned with. The first match against Eclipse saw them win 17-2 and the following week an even more impressive result of 47-0 against Swanley. The girls are truly an inspiration!

The U14s are also showing that hard work plays off with lightening performances resulting in wins against Breakaways (29-2) and Club Langley (42-1) so far.

This was followed by a stunning performance by our U16 Junior County League squad in their Qualifying tournament to secure their league place, winning all three matches played (48-11, 52-13, 44-13).

A staggering 638 goals have been scored so far this season across all our teams and just 381 conceded!!

We are super proud of all the effort and determination that every member puts into both training and competitive match play and we can’t wait to see how the season progresses for all of them.

Beacons Under16 Vs Wealden

Beacon Under 16’s 26 – Wealden 10

On Saturday 28th of February Beacons U16 played Wealden. It was very cold and
windy, however our shooters did very well. Throughout the game the defence was
solid and got many rebounds, despite a tall shooter.

In the final quarter we only conceded 1 goal and only 10 goals over all.
Throughout the game, all of centre court played consistently with lots of interceptions and tips.

Despite the harsh conditions our shooters managed to score 26 goals. They were able to get the ball through a tough defence during the match and the final score was 26-10 to us. A great result!

Special thanks to Damaris, Sophie and Leah who step in to play for the U16 and also to Hermione who played amazingly out of position for this match, and battled through an injury.

The well-deserved player of the match was Leah.

Beacons under 16s Vs Sabina

Sabina 22 – Beacons under 16s 18

Unfortunately we lost to Sabina 22-18. Although we didn’t win the match we played very well as a team keeping the spirit high.

Despite the windy conditions our shooters Hermione and Cassia shot consistently well. Our defenders Tochi and Caitlin weren’t put off by their tall shooters and worked around them making many interceptions.
We didn’t give up throughout our loss but carried on playing at our best all the way through.
