After just two coaching sessions, the Parkroyal netball team faced Ivy Bank on Tuesday in their first match of the 2016-17 season. With many of the players stepping on court for the first time under match conditions, nerves were jangling. The match was definitely a game of 2 halves; the first quarter of the match was dominated by Ivy Bank with them scoring 2 goals in quick succession. As the match progressed, Parkroyal gained confidence and started playing some lovely flowing netball. A second goal just before half time gave Ivy Bank a 3-0 going into the second half. The second half was much closer contented and the excellent Parkroyal defence kept Ivy Bank off the score sheet. Sadly an amazing goal by Millie in the 3rd quarter had to be disallowed but there will certainly be more from this upcoming sharp shooter!! A brilliant first performance; well done to all the squad and particularly to Chloe who was chosen by Ivy Bank as Player of the Match!
Thank you to Mr B for assisting with coaching and to our team of supporters for cheering the team on.
