Our U11 netballers added more silverware to the Junior School trophy cabinet by winning the north-west IAPS tournament, hosted here at Stockport Grammar.
The girls got off to a flying start in the competition by topping their group to set up a semi-final against Liverpool College.
Inspired by some first-class shooting from Jody Peters and Georgia Sykes, the team beat Liverpool 8-4, meaning they would meet Ladybarn – who they had drawn with in the group stage – in the final.
Final v Ladybarn
Team captain Ruby Mellor talked us through the final:
We controlled the game in the first half with a great goal from Jody which meant we were 1-0 up at half-time.
However, Ladybarn came out fighting in the second half and soon equalled the score. At this point our determination and team spirit kicked in.
The final score was 5-2 and we had won the tournament!
Congratulations to the girls!
