Match Report
Culford School 1st VII vs  Bishop's Stortford College
On: Saturday, 12 Jan 2019
Venue: at Home

A great start to the netball term for the 1st VII today. The game remained extremely close throughout with both teams scoring one after the other. Across the whole court Culford worked tirelessly to work the ball into Yaa Zuta in the shooting circle who found space exceptionally well and was accurate with her shots. In defence Maisy Cailes and Alice Barkley consistently turned the ball over and forced errors resulting in a 5 all tie at quarter time.

As we progressed through the game Bishops Stortford seemed to find their rhythm and broke down Culford's attack allowing them to take the lead early on in the 2nd quarter. It continued much the same, remaining a contested game between both sides, with Bishops Stortford taking the lead at half time by 2 goals. Culford pulled it back in the next quarter and Katie Shea and Melia Englefield found Yaa Zuta well in attack to allow them to bring the game back to a 1 goal difference. In the last quarter Culford tried some different shooting combinations to try and close the gap, unfortunately Bishops Stortford's young side managed to keep up the pace of their game and took the win at the final whistle 17-21.
