Saturday 4th March

NETBALL: U13 Netball Y&D

Score: 3rd in their group - won 2, lost 2

On Saturday 4th March, we played in the Y&D netball tournament at Joseph Rowntree School, with matches against four different schools.

We started with a close match against Huntington, with them taking the lead 5-6 in the last few seconds of the game. Then we played Fulford and had a big lead from the beginning. The end result was a win of 12-2.

We then played against All Saints; we were losing at first but managed to bring it back with a win of 9-6. Unfortunately, the last match against St. Peter's didn’t go as well as our other matches as the final score was 13-4 to St. Peter's.

We came third in our group which we were all very pleased with.

NETBALL: U13 Netball Y&D

LACROSSE: U14 & U12 Lacrosse North School's Tournament

It was an early start to the day for the U14s and U12s travelling to Moreton Hall for the North School's Tournament.

Both teams had some tough groups with more experienced teams, but the U12s beat local rivals Harrogate Ladies College 5-2, and the U14s had a closely-fought game against Harrogate Ladies College with a draw at the end.

For most U12s, it was their first Lacrosse match of the year and they had a great day with some excellent Lacrosse on display from both age groups. The U14s showed a huge improvement in their skills and teamwork, they were able to score lots of goals.

Tuesday 7th March

HOCKEY: U12 Y&D tournament

Score: 5-0W vs Joseph Rowntree, 1-1 vs Fulford School

Player of the Match: Heidi (I), Louise (I), Annabel (I) x2

The U12s had a triangular on Tuesday vs Joseph Rowntree and Fulford School. The girls started really strong against JoRo with Louise scoring within the first few seconds of the game. This momentum continued throughout the first half, allowing Louise to get another quick goal, Maddie to score two, and India to also sneak one past the goalie. This was a great start for the team who hadn't played much hockey together since before Christmas.

The girls had a tougher match against Fulford who had a fantastic keeper. They worked hard to try and pass the ball around, but Fulford was too quick. Louise again managed to score from a well-won short corner, but Fulford managed to pull it back to a 1-1 score. Unfortunately, this is how the game ended, but well done to all of the team - very well played.

Tuesday 7th March

NETBALL: U14 A Netball v Bootham

Score: 17-10 loss

Player of the Match: Izzy (III)

The U14A squad played well today against Bootham. They kept calm and worked hard throughout, despite an injury mid-way through and some changes in positions.

We managed to bring it back to a close finish within the fourth quarter but unfortunately, Bootham ultimately went away with the win.

Well done to Izzy who played several different positions and worked incredibly hard throughout, managing to get Player of the Match! A fantastic squad that put in a solid performance they should be proud of.

Tuesday 7th March

NETBALL: U14B Netball v Bootham

Score: 35-11 loss

Player of the Match: Annabelle (III)

Most improved: Abigail (III)

There was some excellent netball on display against Bootham with the U14B team showing a huge improvement from last week's match, along with determination whilst playing against some tough opposition. There we some close quarters, with the final quarter of the game extremely so. Well done to Annabelle who was scoring plenty of goals from all over the circle. A great, positive team performance.

Tuesday 7th March

NETBALL: Mavericks A v Haxby 4

Score: 35-11 loss

Player of the Match: Bonnie

True to form, Mavericks A started well and went ahead comfortably. An injury to a Haxby player in the last minutes of the first quarter (and with no subs) meant they played with 6 for the rest of the game.

It seemed the As were all a-fluster in the second quarter, making silly errors as they tried to adjust to having a free player. They soon calmed down and worked hard together to score a mighty 57 goals. What a finish to the season!

Tuesday 7th March NETBALL: Mavericks A v Haxby 4

Wednesday 8th March

NETBALL: 1st Netball v Worksop

Score: 32-25 win

Player of the Match: Jen

An evenly matched encounter with the 1sts displaying some great movement feeds into the circle and interceptions. Going into the last quarter, we were ahead by 9 and felt we needed to keep the momentum going. However, in the first few minutes, we made some silly mistakes which Worksop took advantage of, scoring 5 goals on the trot.

We kept our composure and made sure we scored on our centre passes before winning the game by 6.

Wednesday 8th March

NETBALL: 2nd Netball v Worksop

Score: 19-8

Player of the Match: Alex

It took the 2nds a couple of quarters to find their rhythm and goal-scoring form. There were some superb interceptions from Alex and Olivia, and lovely movement down the court. We held our nerve in the remaining quarters to seal the win.

Wednesday 8th March

LACROSSE: U14 LAX v York Uni Development Side

This was a fantastic opportunity for our U15s National Schools team to have some extra preparation prior to travelling to Aldershot. It was a great team game with some excellent Lacrosse on display. It was great to see so many different names on the score sheet and the QM girls learned a lot.

Wednesday 8th March

NETBALL: Mavericks B v Haxby 6

Score: Loss

Player of the Match: Amanda

With everyone available for the penultimate game, we were able to have a swap around to find the best combinations. There was some good play throughout the court, but we were outplayed by a team who clearly plays together all the time. Game on for next week's final game of the season!
