OGS Netball Season 1 Round 1 2017
OGS Netball Round 1 2017
The beginning of a new year and a netball season can be quite nerve wracking. After taking out the premiership at the end of last year and not playing netball for 9 weeks while we enjoyed the holidays, it was fair to say that a few stomach's were turning before the match. It was a hot night and inside without air-conditioning made it seem hotter on the court. Our opponents, the SAC Scorchers, were obviously a school team with their blazing blue outfits outshining our white top and shorts. Our first quarter was relatively strong and the scores were basically level at quarter time. Annabel Rafferty in GS was putting up shots like she'd been practising all summer. While our WD, Emme, kept the pressure up in the opposition's attacking half. By the end of the second quarter our fitness levels had definitely been tested. A few changes made for quarter 3 and after being well warmed into the game, saw us gain a few turnovers from Emily in GK. As the opposition grew tired and we focussed on the short and clever passes our game grew stronger. The defence rarely let any passes through their circle and the swift passes through mid-court made it easier for our shooters to get the ball and neatly put up shots! The final whistle blew at the end of four quarters, we dragged our dripping, sweaty selves off the court and checked the score. To our unbelievably red faces we had won by three goals! The year of OGS is off to a flying start!
