Owairaka Netball Team fights back!

3 08 2009

Our second round has just begun with the Three Kings Association. Owairaka struggled in their first attempt at A grade. Going down to both St Therese and St Dominics A.

The weekend just past was a better result with only one loss to a very skilled Wesley Primary team, and a proud win over St Therese (who had recently beaten our team).

Within our new grade we get to play against Cornwall A, Wesley, St Dominics A, Maungawhau A and St Therese.

We notice the difference in both skill and experience in the A grade, compared to the B grade where we came first equal with Wesley Primary.

Time to get practising on our defence and making sure our shooters get those goals in.

We also say a sad goodbye to one of our new students, Grace, who has shown development all year. She was showing confidence in the WD and GD positions. Owairaka team wishes you a safe journey back to Whanganui and we hope you stay in contact with us.

Haere ra e hoa. Kia kaha i nga mahi katoa.

“You can do it!’  Maku e mahi, mau e mahi, tatou katoa ka whiwhi i te matauranga teitei – I can do it, you can do it and together we can achieve our goals.

Team goal:

To always try our best, even when the odd are against us. To always work as a team and with fair play!

Good luck going into this weekends games against Cornwall A at 10.40am court 8 and our second game against St Doms at 11.20am, court 9.

All girls to be ready at the courts by 10.00am for a warm up!

You netball girls played amazingly well today. I am so proud of the six of you who were able to come and play with pride.

A convincing win over Cornwall A at 10.40. Then a near loss to St Dominics A going down 6-4.

You all worked well in your new positions and you proved that ‘You Can Do It!”

To our wonderful supporters – we can’t thank you enough! But we will see you next Saturday, same time, same place… Have a great week! Get ready for our Eden/Albert Tournament at Windmall Rd, Mt Eden, this Wednesday 12th August.
