Para Sports at Easter

Clockhouse claim Collier Row derby win!

Tonight Clockhouse travelled to local neighbours Parklands for a netball fixture. Clockhouse took a big squad with dual motives. Firstly, preparation for the Borough Finals Day and secondly a Year 4 / 5 squad to start building for the future.

Parklands were fired up for the game and made it very hard for the Clockhouse side to break through. It took quick play from captain Lily S-E coming out of the circle to feed shooter Mia C to open the scoring. Despite not being able to get onto the scoreboard until the end of the first quarter Parklands were very tenacious in defence. Meaning Clocks only had a 3-1 lead at the end of the openning quarter. 

The side changed for the second quarter and Clockhouse went back to business. Parklands were growing in confidence and the more they pushed forward the more chances there were for Clockhouse to play on the counter attack. If anything Clockhouse were guilty of trying to play too quickly. Harry H battled with the Parklands center in a fascinating contest while Kayleigh S and Taylor H battled hard defensively. At the half way point Clockhouse led 4-3.

In the third quarter Clockhouse led from the back. Brooke A and Hayden M pushing forward to free up attackers to move around the court. Kayleigh S adding to the Clockhouse lead.

Parklands brought the came back tight in the final quarter dominating the rebound game in the circle. But Clockhouse showed their determination to hold on for victory.

Mr Yarrow said 'Credit to Parklands they got stronger and stronger as the game went on and are definitely a solid side. 

Tonight was a good chance to blow the cobwebs out before finals day on the 1st April. We have a lot of practice to do before meeting old rivals Parsonage Farm.

But looking at the positives it was great to see so many Year 4 / 5's preparing for next year. The pupils that played today and others that are working hard at club make me feel confident for another positive year!

Today was a gritty performance but it was all about playing what was in front of you,  the fact the netballers remain undefeated is a great achievement considering how tight the game finished up.

Thank you to all the parents who supported from the sideline and transported players.  Well done Clockhouse!'

FINAL SCORE: Clockhouse 7 vs 6 Parklands

SQUAD: Brooke A, Hayden M, Holly W, Max N, Ruby N,  Lily S-E (c),  Mia C, Taylor H, Kayleigh S, Jamie S, Harry H, Frankie R and Ben C

SCORERS: Mia C x 3, Lily S-E x 3 and Kayleigh S
