Under 9 Netball v Edenhurst School – 31st Jan

Denstone Prep         6

Edenhurst School   7

In a match where both teachers from Denstone Prep and Edenhurst School agreed that a draw would have been a much fairer result and a truer reflection of the game, Denstone College Prep School was very unlucky to lose a very closely fought game of Under 9 netball to Edenhurst School. The game had been end to end throughout and despite Edenhurst taking an early lead, Denstone Prep was able to snatch the lead back in the third quarter, before Edenhurst managed to finally fight back in the last quarter and scored a late winner to secure a 6-7 victory over the Under 9s.

The narrowly defeated team were very pleased with their ability to work as a team as well as communicating and fighting for the ball but highlighted the need to work on quicker passing of the ball and being a little more confident in their abilities in their next game.
