Borough Netball Rally

With a late change of rules for this year’s Borough Rally allowing mixed teams to enter, our squad arrived at the competition having trained but not having played competitively together. You’d never have known! This really was a good example of everyone playing their part and contributing fully to the results by working together as a team and using everyone’s strengths. Across the court everyone defended hard to win turnovers and some composed passing when attacking allowed us many chances at goal.

Unbeaten in the round robin stage, having beaten Stanley Park, Nonsuch, Green Wrythe and Foresters, as winners of our group we faced Holy Trinity in the semi-final – an extremely strong team. It was an exciting game, as semi-finals should be!, and closely fought throughout. On the final whistle Holy Trinity had held their 2-1 lead and moved into the final, going on to win overall.

Dorchester really worked hard in the semi though and to be so close to earning a place in the final with such a narrow defeat shows how well they performed on Saturday and how much they fully deserved their 3rd place overall.

I was extremely proud of them all for their excellent play, determination and sporting approach to the whole competition – it was a fitting end to the competitive netball season for us!

Congratulations to Emilia, Evie, Paige, Hei, Carson, Aldea, Amelie and Alba.
