Greenway Girl’s Netball v Limewalk 4.2.16

February 5, 2016

On Thursday 4th February, the Greenway Year 6 Girls netball squad had their season opener against Limewalk. After a disappointing season last season, playing as year 5’s, the girls were finally year 6’s and could finally play against girls in their year group.

The girls movement, passing, pivoting and shooting were all at the highest level they could be. The girls were quickly interchanging and moving the ball, which resulted in the ball finding itself in the ‘D’ very often. Olivia Rolfe quite simply put on a shooting masterclass! She opened the scoring early and had quickly hit a rhythm, contributing 9 goals in the first quarter with Isabella MacDonald also knocking down 3 of her own. The score at the end of the first quarter was 12-0, due to impressive shooting and extremely disciplined defending.

The second quarter got underway after some fresh rotations which saw Olivia taken off to rest her shooting arm. Isabella and Amy took over and took time to find rhythm but still contributed 1 each in this quarter. Amy also took a nasty blow to her nose, a nose with a history for being quite vulnerable. So she was replaced to receive some much needed first aid, having just returned from one injury.

The third quarter saw some more rotations but proved to be the quiet quarter but Esme added 3 of her own to keep the scoring alive. Olivia also hit a few more just to keep the opposition on their toes. By this time the score was 19-4 and the girls had a commanding lead to take into the final quarter.

The start of the fourth saw a small crowd start to appear and at quite a perfect moment as Olivia again hit her stride with her class teachers watching. Amy also added another 1 of her own and the end of the game approached. The final score was 26-4 to Greenway with Olivia contributing 17, Isabella 4, Esme 3 and Amy 2.

A simply emphatic start to the season, which puts Greenway into a huge headwind! The Momentum will hopefully carry the girls forward.
