Year 5 and 6 Mixed Netball Tournament

On Wednesday 21st March eight children from the Chilcote netball squad represented the school at a mixed high 5 netball tournament at Kings Norton Girls School. In total eight teams took part and were split into two groups of four.

Chilcote were placed into a group with Cotteridge A, Bells Farm and Kings Norton. In their first game they played against Kings Norton. It was a pretty even match with both teams having chances to score but not taking them. Unfortunately, just before the end of the game Kings Norton managed to score 1 and win the game 1v0.

In their second game Chilcote played against Cotteridge A. Cotteridge dominated the match and Chilcote just couldn't get out of their third. Cotteridge deservedly won the game 4v0. Chilcote did have a chance to score right at the end but didn't take it.

Finally, Chilcote played against Bells Farm and they were the more dominant team and had four or  five great chances to score. Unfortunately, they did not take any of them. Bells Farm then scored with one of teir two chances in the match and won the game 1v0.

This meant that Chilcote finished fourth in the group and went into a 7th and 8th place play off with Hollywood.  Chilcote finally found their shooting hands and took some of their chances. They scored almost straight away and then never looked back. They went on to win the game 3v0 and finish the tournament in 7th place.

Well done to all of the children who represented the school so brilliantly!!!
