In an almost hare & tortoise style match, the U13's Tigers secured a well deserved win despite Didsbury Terrapins closing in on their impressive lead.
The Under 13 Tigers started the first quarter impressively notching up 6 fairly quick goals against a slow to start Didsbury squad. With a few new players and some once again playing out of regular positions, the girls settled quickly into a good team structure finishing the quarter 6-1 up. With Didsbury making a few key changes they turned up the pace scoring 3 goals in quick succession but the Tigers raced on to keep their 6 goal lead taking the score to 11-5. Mid court changes for the Tigers saw them storm ahead stretching their lead to 21-7 by the end of the third quarter. The final quarter however saw the Terrapins closing the gap showing how easily a game can turn around. Although not quite a nail biting end to the game, we were glad to hear the final hooter and pleased there was no such thing as Fergie time in netball!
The Didsbury coach came over to pass on her congratulations- she thought the girls played very well.
Congratulations to all the girls today for maintaining the under 13 Tigers winning streak: Allana, Amy, Bethany, Ella, Frankie, Inga, Kymara, Lizzieand Molly. Thanks to Jude for her invaluable coaching for both Under 13's and Under 12's and to all the parents for transporting and supporting
