Kia Ora 9 vs Kia Ora 8
Kia Ora Score: 14
Opposition Score: 33
The game was a fantastic learning opportunity for our team to get to know each other on the court, and to set a positive and competitive environment for the season
The ladies were extremely aware of each other on the court and showed that they are learning how others move and respond to play. The team showed positivity and did not stop fighting, despite being a few goals down to Kia Ora 8.
We all celebrated in the middle of the court (Kia Ora 8 & 9) in style at the end of the game, and it truly showed the wonderful sportswoman-ship that is Kia Ora Netball. Well done to both teams!
A huge thank you to all of the ladies in KO9! Everyone played their best and fought right until the last second on the clock.
Player of the match went to Georgia - she demonstrated her competitive side and she fought for every single ball!
Special mention must be made to Alice who came and played for Kia Ora 9 after we lost a few shooters this week! Thanks Alice, you were wonderful and we would love to have you back!
Our future plans are to slow down when we have possession of the ball, and to not let the excitement deter from the purpose of having possession! (We celebrate after games!), we are going to be training hard to bring out the hunger for the all in future, and look to come in front of our partners when we are receiving a pass.
And some thanks:
Thanks to all of the girls in Kia Ora 9 & 8 for a wonderful game, to all of the supporters (kids, partners and parents) who came to support our lovely ladies, to other Kia Ora players from other teams supporting us, and to Gayle for the new Game Balls! :)
