Gateway entered 2 teams in the Chiltern and South Bucks Primary Netball Tournament on Saturday 16 April. This tournament was re-arranged from last term.
The first round was a round robin and both teams played 5 matches.
The B team won 2, lost 2 and drew 1 match so were just pipped at the post and did not progress to the quarter finals. The girls all worked well as a team, tried their best showing great netball skills and were very unlucky not to progress. Well done Iona, Megan, Eve, Freya, Eva and a special mention to Lucy Lloyd who came back after injury and scored the most goals for her team.
The A team won all five of their matches and progressed to the quarter-finals where they played Chartridge School and won 8-0. Next the semi-finals against Our Lady’s School this was a hard fought match and we managed to win 6-4. The final was a very difficult match against Heatherton House who were marking so tightly we could not get free. The final score was 5-0 to Heatherton who were the better team on the day. So we came second out of 18 teams and won silver medals. Excellent play and hard work; Kimberley, Roisin, Jessica C, Hannah M, Angharad, Hannah W and Emily.
This was the girls’ last match representing Gateway School. Good luck in your new schools and keep up the netball.
