COUNTY CHAMPIONS!!!!

County champs

Having worked so hard as a team since September - coming to all training sessions and taking part in matches, both the Central Venue League tourna-ment and organised friendlies, eight Year 9 girls went into their U14 County Competition on Tuesday (8th November) evening with determination, enthusi-asm and excitement!

There were 16 teams that had entered this county tournament, with everyone being split into four sec-tions. West Bridgford knew they had to win their section in order to progress any further as there were no runner-up spots available this year. With their strong-minded will and positive mind set from the beginning they went on to beat South Wolds, Emmanuel and Joseph Whitaker to progress into the semi-finals, where they were to meet Nottingham Girls High School. Due to the girls’ eagerness and focus they secured a convincing win over them, resulting in them getting into the finals- which turned out to be against Rushcliffe!

Over the past two years in Years 7 and 8, West Bridgford have always come second to Rushcliffe in netball fixtures – however having beaten them already this season in a warm up competition (which the girls also secured gold medals in), they knew they had it in them to do it again.

The final was fought after, with the win up for grabs by either team at half time, despite Bridgford having the edge, leading by one goal. Again with the sheer determination West Bridgford fought hard to keep their lead in the second half and didn’t disappoint. They ended up winning the game by two goals – with the final score being 7-5!

This is a fantastic achievement for the girls – not only becoming U14 County Champions, but also because it means they are through to the Regional Netball Tournament in Janu-ary joining the U16 and U19 teams who also progressed through earlier in the year.
