Tuesday brought about the opening round of fixtures for our netball team. The children travelled to Mounts Bay Academy where they participate in the Penwith Schools High-5 netball league.
The team consisted of a mixture of year 5 and 6 children, many of whom were playing for the first time.
The match started positively for Penpol but unfortunately they couldn’t make their dominance count with Gulval leading 1-0 at half-time. The second half seemed much more comfortable for the children with them begging to play with confidence and freedom.
An excellent performance from player for the match, Vinnie, who played at both GK and GS was rewarded with two points.
Unfortunately it wasn’t enough as the team fell to a 3-2 defeat. Plenty of positives to take from the game which was played with big smiles on their faces!
If you’d like to give netball a go, netball club in on a Thursday with Mrs Turner for year 5 & 6.
