Ballyclare Primary School

Netball tournament

28th Apr 2017

On Wednesday 26th April, the girls competed in the second stage of the netball tournament and were up against some tough teams!

Following an energetic warm up, led by our captain Leah Morrison, the girls were first up against Whitehouse PS. Ballyclare very quickly stole the lead after two fantastic interceptions from Grace Cowden and super finishing goals by Abigail Bradley. They started how they meant to go on as the final score of the match was 3-1 to Ballyclare.

Next Ballyclare was up against Whitehead. The girls were on fire as the attacking and the defensive play further improved. Great passes into the semi-circle from Katie-Anna Weatherup allowed Olivia McGuigan to shoot the ball up and score. Nothing was getting by our defensive play by Erin Cochrane, Ellie McGimpsey and Chrissie Marshall as the final score of the match was 3-0 to Ballyclare.

Finally our last match was against Whiteabbey. The girls went on strong with great rebounds being caught by Leah Morrison and fantastic marking by Katie Wasson. The girls fought to the end with great determination but unfortunately lost the last match 5-2 to Whiteabbey. 

The girls all played incredibly well and should be extremely proud of themselves! Well done!!
