The Wednesday Netball Nights team had a close game against Titans finally losing 24-27 after a relentless outing. These girls mostly U14 with coach Alisha Levy are being well challenged each week in this senior league helping to develop their game.
On Saturday morning our West Yorkshire Seniors put up a great show against a very strong experienced Morrison’s but sadly ran out of steam in the final quarter resulting in a 43-54 loss.
Sunday saw lots of teams out, many in their first match of the season or ever for Leeds Athletic. The U16A team had another great result against Shipley winning 53-22. Meanwhile the U16B had a game of two halves, winning by 12 at half time after a confident performance then managing to hold on to a 2 goal win by the end 26-24.
Only the U14A scheduled to play in the 14s this week, they had an excellent win 42-11 with all girls taking to court and playing at least half a game.
Our U12A team had a stormer, beating arch rivals Huddersfield Giants 31-8 there must have been a lot of hard work at training to achieve this result. The U12B and U12C were pitched against one another in a well spirited match final outcome 27-8 to the Bs. The U12D team wow, pulled out a one goal victory 9-8 v Twinkles what superstars.
Back on to Seniors, our Prem 1 team travelled south to Gloucester for a match against a strong Hucclecote, in this top National League, a long way to travel resulting in a 52-24 loss.
The Northern team were also away from home at Oaksway in the North East, Jan Hemsley’s young team came away with a fabulous nerve racking 47-45 win.
The U14s and U12s are looking to go to Disneyland Paris at Easter. Watch this exciting space.
