Home v QEGS – Won 34-23

Hockey takes priority in the Michaelmas Term, so this was our first school netball fixture of the year. Both teams started well in difficult conditions. After the first quarter, Shrewsbury were 9-6 up thanks to some excellent shooting from Hannah Blofield and Lindsay Albutt against a strong wind. The 2nd quarter was evenly matched; with Shrewsbury a couple up making the half time score 16-11. QEGS came back strong in the third quarter, but Shrewsbury held them to 8-8, making it 24-19. In the final quarter Shrewsbury really found their form and pushed forward to a convincing 34-23 victory.
A very encouraging performance and result for the first game.
