MVP: Molly Anne Gimson
Culford started the game as they meant to continue, and the first quarter was by far one of their best. The movement of the ball around the court focused on everything we had worked on in training. The second quarter was a little tight, however the girls settled again in the second half, and with new combinations, continued to work well together as a team and went on to dominate the game.
MVP: Georgia Ironmonger
The fiercely cold weather could not stop the Culford team storming through this match. The team worked together, despite playing out of position for some of the match, they were just too strong for the Barnardiston Team. They still have lots to work on, but this has been a very promising start to the term.
MVP: Olivia Whyte
Culford U11A team made a good start in their match v Barnardiston, quickly taking a 5 – 1 lead; a result of some excellent shooting from Grace Baxter and Patience Leslie. Supported in the centre of the court by Polly Cailes and Lulu Surti, Culford continued to build on this lead, and increase their goal tally. Trying different combinations of shooters, allowed Olivia Whyte to show what she is capable of, whether she was working with Grace or Georgie Stammers, and Culford continued to increase their advantage. Anoushka Fernandes Cardy moved up to goal defence, and her height in the mid-court gave more width to the game. Leah Fitton enjoyed the last quarter at centre, working well with Patience and Olivia, and the final score of 16 – 5 should give this team confidence for future weeks
MVP: Anya Lorriman Hughes
It was a good game albeit very cold, and despite the bitter weather and all the U11B team stepped up to the challenge of the match. The team glided the ball up the court with ease making good use of the spaces and gained good control of the ball. They used their height and determination to their advantage and demonstrated excellent interception of the ball from their opponents.
