Prep Sports Report

The Prep boys were straight back into action after the break with matches at Hazlegrove. The U10As enjoyed an entertaining match in which all the boys contributed really well to a good team performance. The U10/11Bs played well in the first half and went two goals up, however, they ran out of steam towards the end and got pipped in the last quarter. Meanwhile the U11As felt the effects of half term and put in a very rusty performance against well drilled opposition.

Senior Match Reports

Netball 

U13A v King’s Hall – After the week break from netball the year 7&8 first team had a bit of a shock playing a well drilled King’s Hall side. The girls fought hard, but felt the pressure and weren’t able to compose themselves until the final quarter, when they played their best netball.

U12B v King’s Hall – The year 7 and 8 4th team played a fantastic match that was incredibly close for most of the game. Harriet Newcombe scored our goals with some fantastic shooting, while Martha Griffiths was great in support. Emilia Pluckwell found her feet as C and played her best game so far in that position. Phoebe Fineberg was awesome in WD, making some great turnovers in possession. Millie Green grew in confidence as GK and was named defender of the match by the opposition. Emilia Pluckwell was attacker of the match.

U12A v King’s Hall – The year 7/8 3rd team showed some great individual performances against King’s Hall. Lara Fourie in the GK bib had some great interceptions. Hattie Thorne had a great game in the centre position giving lots of options bringing the ball down court. Freya Mills and Nancy Holt also did a great job in the WD and GD positions offering lots of support bringing the ball down to our attacking end, resulting in them both being awarded oppositions player of the match.

 

Hockey 

U13/12D v Hazlegrove – It was a rusty first half, perhaps after a restful half term break, but the team still managed to work a goal through some excellent play from James Confrey, who squared the ball to Louis Thompson to finish. In the second half, the team were much more composed and figured out how to keep Hazelgrove away from danger. In a closely fought half, Queen’s scored two breakaway goals after good work from Jonny McDavid and end the half with a draw.

U13A v Hazlegrove – A good performance against a strong Hazelgrove side. Both sides have chances in the D and Hazelgrove taking their opportunities very well. Great deflection from TT in front of the keeper and brilliant finish from Tom Nash off a short corner were the highlights for Queen’s.
