Competition:Seniors – Parmiters Result : Lost 17 – 6
Squad : G.Brooks, M.Pooley, J.Pepito, L.Smith, J.Stringer, C.Liebling, A.Bates
Comment : The senior netball team faced tough opposition in their first league match against Parmiters.  The team were under pressure from the onset but fought hard to reduce the score of their opponents.  Although losing the game the final score did not represent the determination of the Bushey team and with some more accurate shooting the score could have been a lot closer.

Comment :

The first league match saw Bushey Meads take on local rivals Queens.  The game started at a fast pace with queens converting their chances and taking an early lead.  The Bushey team soon settled and found away back into the game with some fine work by the shooters Shannon Ballantyne and Ellie Fegaruras.  With the score at 6-6 going into the final quarter the game could go either way.  In the final quarter Queens took a two goal lead but with some fine passing play and great fighting spirit the Bushey Meads team managed to level the score at 8-8 before the final whistle blew.  This was a really positive start to the season, well done girls.

Comment :

A very exciting start to the season for the year 8 team who demonstrated excellent passing. The coach from the other team asked how many of our girls were playing at club level which reflects just how well they played as a team. Shooting was outstanding and the girls should be proud of their performance.

 

Competition:Year 10 – St Michaels Result : Lost 19 – 4
Squad : L Jarman, E. Murray, C Schaibo, N Sharif, E. Charalambous, N. Powell, M Sykes, E Steele. A Dell
Comment : This was year 10s first match of the season. After a slow start to the game  the players began to settle and play improved. The oppositions shooting was very accurate which is reflected in the score. All girls were determined and if we had played like we did in the last half throughout the game, the score would have been closer.Player of Match Lizzie Jarman- (excellent interceptions)

 

 

 

Competition:Year 9 – Francis Combe Result : Lost 21 – 14
Squad : E. Richards, G. Hill, T. Charles, D. Noel, M. Baker, S. Wright, E. Jarman
Comment : Their second match of the season saw some much improved play. Especially in their shooting and centre passes. The girls were 6 4 up in the first quarter and scored consistently throughout the match. The score was not at all reflective of the game and how well the girls played. It was an opposition with a couple of very strong players and we are confident of some good results in the coming matches
