Reports for recent netball and girls' football matches, as written by Russell House players.
U10/11A Girls' Football v St Michael's: We went to St Michael's to play our first football match. It was lots of fun and we won 8-1. The main people that scored the goals were Ella R, who scored three goals, and Lexi, who scored two. Ella M played very well in goal. We did very well with getting the ball down the field. Our Player of the Match was George, who was outstanding, but we all played well and had lots of fun. Madison
U10/11B Girls' Football v St Michael's: We were thrilled to play in our very first football match. The U10/11B girls' football match was played away against St Michael's Prep School. We were nervous to start with, but our nerves soon changed to excitement. In the first half, Clara ably defended the goal and in the second half, Niah stopped St Michael's scoring a goal. Mia, Mevna and Isla were quick and effective tackling in mid-field. Aimee did brilliantly up front and scored 5 goals! Isla and Isabelle also scored a goal each, with the help of our team. Aimee was the Player of Match. It was a great team effort and we won 7-0. Good work, girls! Isabelle
U11 IAPS Netball Regional Qualifier: On Thursday 2nd March, the Russell House U11 Netball Team took part in the IAPS Regional Netball Tournament at Kent College. The tournament followed England Netball’s rules for Bee Stinger Netball, which meant that we had to play 5-aside and rotate positions at half-time and for each new match. Our first match was against Rose Hill, which we won 6-2. We then played Channing Junior and James Allen’s Prep. We finished third in our pool, which meant that we went through to the quarter finals of the Plate Competition. We then won against Kent College Canterbury, which meant that we went through to the semi finals. Sadly, we lost that match against St Michael’s, but knew we tried our hardest. We then had to play Rose Hill again in the third/fourth place play-off. We played even better than the first time we played Rose Hill and we won that match 8-2, which meant that we finished in third place. Ella M
