On Wednesday our Netball Nights team beat Thundercats 25-15 in a rearranged game to tie up the winter league. Thanks to player coach Libby Hodgkiss for providing support, advice and encouragement for our young team of mainly U14 year olds in this senior league.
The West Yorkshire Seniors had an impressive win 56-40 up against Wakefield Wildcats, two more games to go in this league and in contention at the top of the Superleague division.
Massive congratulations to our Senior Yorkshire Regional squad who have won the league, taking the win against Harrogate Phoenix 63-38. Then reliant on third place Hallam to beat first place Sheffield Stormers in the following match, it was a tense wait. Good for us Hallam won, Leeds took top spot, now in second place Stormers still go through to Northern league as LANC do not qualify, each club are only allowed one team in Northern League. This season the Regional league squad has consisted of players mainly aged 14 to 18, up against the best senior teams in Yorkshire. Well done to coach Susie Stead for directing this team to be league champions!
Still with Seniors our Prem one side beat local rivals Grangetown 53-40 at home, Leeds Beckett University. A great finish to the season, safely staying in the top flight of netball league. Massive thanks to Francine as player coach and Jane who has been primary carer and organiser. Thanks also to those who have scored and timed for games, and those who have driven to away games.
The U16 Regional team continued their winning streak with a 23-45 win against Sheffield Concord their place in Nationals now confirmed, and remaining unbeaten with a crazy goal difference!
Our U14 Regional team also won confirming their Nationals place. Beating Dronfield 61-10, again unbeaten, well done all!
In the West Yorkshire league our U16s had a close win 30-29, up against Yorkshire Terriers, finally coming down to a penalty after the final whistle, just like the Commonwealth Games Final. Not great for the nerves on a Sunday morning, but big well done!
Sadly at 26-34 it was a loss for the U14 West Yorkshire team playing Wakefield Wildcats, however they will remain top of the league above Wildcats on a significant goal difference with two matches to play.
A win v Huddersfield Giants for our U12(1) in their last game of the season coming top of their league, clear winners with a goal difference of an amazing 335. U12(2) have done brilliantly to come second in the same league. Massive congratulations to both teams and coach John Hipshon. Thanks for all the background work Kathryn.
The U12(2) played U12(3) today resulting in a 20-12 win to the 2nds. Loads of effort from both sides in a match played with great spirit.
Hi 5(1) had a good outing against YMCA(2), it was a close one final outcome 9-11 to YMCA. Lots of improvement in recent weeks, well done everyone. Hi5(2) lost 13-8 to Twinkles but more goals being scored each match, the girls were fantastic and are getting better week by week. Thanks to all helpers in this league.
