Netball League Final

Netball League Final

On a fresh Monday afternoon, The Batt School Netball Team headed off to Madley Brook School to play their long awaited final. On arrival the opposition team were practising in a well drilled fashion and after a quick warm up for The Batt we were ready to get underway.

The Batt started off in a somewhat surprisingly quick fashion racing into a 6-1 lead mainly thanks to some excellent shooting from Anna and great support play from Joe and Finn. However towards the end of the 1st half some tired legs helped Madley pull back the deficit to 6-3.

The second half started with Madley still in the ascendancy taking the game to The Batt with some excellent snatch and grab play to force The Batt into defensive mode, Madley then taking the lead 8-7 halfway through the second half. Realising the need for change a couple of second half substitutes were made by The Batt and this proved the changing point as The Batt regained their mojo and quickly dominated the last quarter of the game running out 11-9 winners in a tense topsy-turvy contest.

Huge congratulations to all involved in the whole Netball League campaign.
