Amazing effort by the girls
Wow, what an amazing effort by the girls! There is just so much excitement and belief in the team at the moment that I think everyone is still on a massive high from the weekend.
The day started well with all of the girls enjoying a nice sleep in knowing that the preparations for our game against the Wild Cats would not start until around 9.00am. The girls were cool, calm and collected.
We knew that we could beat Wildcats but also knew that to do that we needed to play controlled Netball and eliminate our errors, not allowing the Wildcats into the game.
We also knew that our preparation was good and that we had some great stats going for us, like our ‘against record’ being one of the best in the entire competition so it was just a matter of putting it together on the court and that’s exactly what we did!
We headed into the next game of the elimination finals against the Tigers. We had previously lost to the Tigers, but again, knew that if we played our game, that we could knock them out and so we did just that!!!!!
We will train again this weekend as a full squad which will be really great for continued development and further tough match play and will prepare for another tough game mentally as well. We will also be reviewing the game we played Lynx who are our next opponents and will be trying to identify their strengths and weaknesses so that we can be as fully prepared as possible.
We know we can do this, we have the ability and passion and the squad have never wanted it more, for themselves and for each other. It is just a case now of preparing as best we can and delivering on the day.
