Netball Goals Galore

12 October 2016

It's been raining netball goals at Wally Hall in the last week.

Last Thursday, the U15s scored a staggering 72 goals in only two matches. In an early afternoon fixture they beat Benenden 42 -11 in the School Sport Magazine Cup round. They followed this up with a 30 - 13 win against Bennett Memorial later in the afternoon.

The U14s then rounded off the day, winning their match against Bennett 33 -4.

On Friday, 54 Wally Hall U13, U14 and U15/16 netballers travelled to Condover for a weekend tournament where they played 64 matches, winning an incredible 50, drawing 2 and loosing only 8 (4 of which were were Wally v Wally games!)

To top it all off the U16s yesterday scored 103 goals to win their section at Kent Schools, this takes them through to Nationals alongside their U19 peers who have already qualified.

The Netball doesn't end there though as we have two more teams heading off to their Kent Schools competitions before the week is out.

Congratulations to all of our players on a week of outstanding netball.
