After a frustrating 8 week wait as several schools cancelled matches, the year 11 netball team eventually got back on court last night playing against St Albans in their first league game of the season,and it was well worth the wait!
Within a few minutes it was obvious that Felixstowe Academy was in a different class playing stylish ,fluent and exciting netball! They forged ahead with speed leaving their opponents shocked and way behind with excellent teamwork and accurate shooting.
The way all 8 players combined and supported each other was truly impressive and every combination created new pathways and opportunities. Imogen playing centre was relentless in her movement around the court with a revitalised Georgia and Carra bringing the ball from defence to attack.
Half time brought a score of 20 goals to 3 and in the second half Felixstowe surged even further ahead. A relatively new defence of Jess and Kenna combined well to restrict their opponents attempts to a minimum, while at the other end the shooting formation of Lauren and Perry rarely missed. Our super sub was Polly who adapted brilliantly in a new position.
The final score was 34 goals to 4. A brilliant game to watch!
