U14 Netball Finalists at Bromsgrove Tournament

February 27, 2017 12:00 pm

The U14A’s played in the invitational tournament at Bromsgrove. In a difficult group Wycliffe played confident and attacking netball, securing wins against Oakham (11-5), Stamford (12-2) Uppingham (15-8) and Malvern College (11-6). Still in the round stages Wycliffe had 2 tough matches left against the favourites in the group Cheltenham College and Rugby. In true fighting spirit Wycliffe battled with Cheltenham College until the final whistle stealing a 9-8 win. The last group game against Rugby was dominate and easy win 9-3.

With everything to play for Wycliffe faced Oundle School in the semi-finals. Drawing 4-4 at half time some creative attacking moves have Wycliffe much needed possession to take Wycliffe to their 7th win of the day in a 9-7 victory.

The final against Bromsgrove was always going to be tough, knowing they reached the regional finals for the midlands. But the team’s efforts could not be faulted. Defensive turnovers and a change of positions at half time saw Wycliffe come right back into the game at 6-8. Unfortunately a couple of last minute goals and intense pressure from Bromsgrove saw Wycliffe’s first loss of the day 7-11.

Wycliffe came 2nd overall out of 14 schools. This was a fantastic effort and achievement by all of those who played. Well done
