Year 6 and 7 Netball vs Notting Hill Prep Netball
On Monday 5th November the year 6/7 girls played against NHP at Kensington Memorial Park, there were two teams on two separate pitches.
The blue team played a total of three 10 minute thirds, all of them high energy and very tense! The team played well, looking for spaces around the court and focusing on staying close to their opponent when defending the ball. After a few injuries from both sides, the final whistle was blown to finish the game with a score of 4-2 to NHP. Despite the final score the team were proud of their efforts and are looking forward to the next match.
The pink team got off to a great start and within two minutes of the first centre pass, Chepstow had scored a goal. It was reflective of our team talk where the girls discussed the need to make accurate passes rather than rushing to offload the ball. During the second 10 minutes NHP equalised and the Chepstow girls had to up their game and ensure they were both defending as well as focusing on their attacking. After another team talk to refocus the girls got back on track for the last 10 minutes and managed to get back in the lead to secure Chepstow a 4 – 3 win.
Year 3 Netball vs Notting Hill Prep
On Tuesday 6th November the year 3 girls played in their first fixture for Chepstow House School against Notting Hill Prep at Kensington Memorial Park. The girls were split into 3 teams, rolling on and off throughout the three 10 minute thirds against the opposition. The girls had the opportunity to try out different positions around the court, although the team are still learning the areas allowed for each position, they are beginning to work together as a team to understand the rules. The attitude and energy of all of the girls was fantastic and it was great to see them enjoying the match.
Pink team CHS 3 – 2 NHP
