Netball round-up: February 8

The first team had more fortune on Saturday playing Liverpool College at home.

The girls responded to play from the get go and were eager to gain a win. Despite starting-off too fast and messy, the girls managed to slow their play and create fluency taking an impressive win of 34-13.

On Wednesday the firsts and seconds team travelled to Birkenhead. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favour and the girls struggled to adapt to outside play, slowing our reactions and movement; the final score reflecting this, of 29-19 to Birkenhead.

The second VII also played in difficult conditions. Birkenhead, dominated possession in the first quarter whilst Rydal Penrhos took time to adapt to the conditions.

At the start of the second quarter Rydal Penrhos began to control the game with some excellent defensive play allowing us to pull back the score.

The final quarter was by far the best with excellent linking play by Gowri Pradeep, Holly Battersby and Samiya Garrod taking the final score to 8 - 11.

On Saturday the u15s played Liverpool College. The first quarter was reasonably equal, as both teams struggled to make any real progress due to the strong defence from both teams.

However, as the match progressed Liverpool College improved their mid-court play, which enabled them to take the lead heading into the final quarter.

Rydal Penrhos managed to score some excellent goals in the final quarter but, unfortunately, it was not enough to claim victory, as the final score was 11-10 to Liverpool College. Player of the match was Cerys Cuddihy.
