The U14s had their first competitive (friendly) match of the season against Hull Diamonds three weeks ago. They played 6 x 10 minutes resulting in a draw of 45:45 it was amazing to be back on court in the black and blue.
Many thanks to ENA for creating a junior league running from Lightcliffe Academy in Halifax to give our athletes the opportunity to return to competition. Parents were delighted to be able to view live streaming of some matches this weekend. Our thanks go to Mark Boocock working on behalf of ENA for creating the league and facilitating the filming.
U16A have had two wins from two in the ENA league beating Bells significantly 57-1 in the first game and this week saw them up against tough opposition in the form of our own U16B team, a proper ding dong match with both sides providing some quality netball, the final score was 24-16.
Last week the U16B team had a great run out, winning 32-8 over a mixed opposition team in place of Oaksway who withdrew from the league last minute.
The U14A team won their first ENA league match 46:2 against Birkenshaw Bells B team. Lovely just to see so many happy faces on court. The U14As conquered for a second time this week in an astounding 36-9 win over Grangetown.
Well done to both the U14 LANC B and C teams who played each other a week ago. The girls took some time to adjust to the new umpiring rules but it is all a learning curve. The final score was 17-9 to the B team.
Brilliant play by the LANC U14B team who secured a solid victory against Birkenshaw Bells on Sunday, final score was 37-0. Defensive play by all the athletes was magnificent.
LANC U14C played a tough match against Diamonds this Sunday we won the last quarter 5-3 but lost the overall game 31-13. A big credit to our girls who showed determination, resilience and kept battling on until that final whistle blew!
