After last weekend's washout, the Blaxland Redbacks U/8's Sparkles took on Springwood who were a much better team than last games...
Kate was given the Goal Attack position and for the first time (due to Netball's odd rules) was allowed to shoot for goals... and in the 2nd minute of the game with her first shot, Kate popped it straight in - nothing but net!
Very proud we were!
She also worked very hard in defence and took many intercepts to set up her team with more shots and had a few more herself, but was unable to convert. Then at half time, it was her turn to have a half game and she sat out the rest of the match with the Redbacks leading 1-0.
The second half was a bit more even as the Springwood team started to get a number of shots and they had one little girl who came close with every shot and eventually she got the equaliser in the 4th quarter.
A great game, Kate got "Girl of the Match" from the coach and we now have a very excited budding netballer in the house!
