The supporting team were: Jessica C, Hannah M, Angharad, Hannah W, Emily, Iona and Eva.
The B team played well they used the space to get free, worked hard and marked the opposition well. The score at half time was 5-2 to Gateway. The opposition gained in confidence in the second half and in an exciting finish the final score was 8-7 to Heatherton House - very evenly matched. Jessica J and Georgia played Goal Shooter and Goal Attack. The supporting team were: Taesha, Daisy (an excellent Centre), Eve, Jessica C, Megan, Evie and Freya.
Well done to both teams.
