Netball Match Vs St. Osburgs

Well done to the All Souls Netball team who played their first match of the season against St. Osburgs at home tonight. The match was evenly fought which was reflected in the final score of 2-2.

Thank you to the team of Year Six players: Aila, Michael, Lily, Connor, Julia and Caleb. Every one worked hard throughout and for half of these players it was their first ever match. Congratulations to Aila for being a great captain and for being named as our player of the match by St. Osburgs. Thank you also to the two members of staff from St. Osburgs for umpiring the match.

Our next game is against St. Augustine’s, at home, next Tuesday.

Netball tonight cancelled

Given the weather this morning, the current state of the playground and the forecast for the rest of the day I’ve made the decision to cancel tonight’s netball club.  There are now too many members to make training in the school hall viable.  Fingers crossed the weather improves soon!  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Netball Cup Match vs St Elizabeth’s Primary

Well done to the netball team who played incredibly well to beat St. Elizabeth’s 8-2 in the Catholic Cup on Friday evening.  It was a lovely match played with a great spirit and temperament.  I’m really proud of the team who have made such a good start to the season – so well done to Matthew (Captain), Issy, Martha, Orlaith, Maddy, Michael and Aila.  An extra well done to Issy for being named player of the match by the opposition.

Thank you to St Elizabeth’s for the warm welcome and post match refreshments!

Our next match is tomorrow evening, when we host Holy Family in the league.

Netball Match vs St Osburg’s

Well done to the netball team who played superbly against St. Osburg’s tonight.  The first two periods were very closely fought with the lead swapping and changing several times between the two schools.  During the third period, we found our rhythm though and scored 5 goals consecutively.  We held on well during the final quarter, rounding off what was our best performance of the season so far.  The final score was 11-5 to All Souls.

A big well done the whole team: Issy (Captain), Matthew, Martha, Maddy, Aila and Michael. A special well done to Aila, who was chosen by the opposition as our player of the match.

Thank you to St Osburgs for playing in a very sporting manner, and their warm welcome – and to Mrs McDevitt for umpiring.

Our next match is against St. Elizabeth’s on Friday in the Catholic Cup.

Netball Training next week

As we have a netball match on Tuesday (8th Nov), next week’s netball training will take place on Monday (7th Nov), after school from 3:15-4:15pm. Apologies for any inconvenience that this causes – and I appreciate if some children are unable to attend due to other commitments.

Netball League Match vs St Thomas More

Well done to the school netball team, who played their second match of the season tonight, at St Thomas More Primary.  It was a great game, with both teams doing themselves and their school’s proud – and played with an excellent temperament throughout.  In the end, All Souls came out winners, with the final score 6-2.  Was also lovely to catch up with Mrs Fennell, who has just taken charge of Netball at St Thomas More, having begun working there in September.

Big thanks to Matthew, Martha, Orlaith and Issy from Year 6 and Aila, Michael, Rebecca and Lily from Year 5 for their contributions to an overall great team performance.  Congratulations to Issy for being an excellent captain again, and for once again being voted player of the game by the opposition.

Our next match is against St Elizabeth’s in the Catholic Cup, shortly after half term.


Netball League Match Vs Christ the King

I’m super proud of the All Souls Netball team who played their first match of the season (and first match ever for many of them!) last night at Christ the King school.  The match was fought evenly for most of the game but Christ the King came out eventual winners with the end result 4-2.

All of the players contributed so much to a great team performance though – and most definitely exceeded my expectations.  There were so many positive aspects to our performance and some which we will continue to work at each week in training.

Well done to Issy, Martha and Matthew from Year 6 for their excellent leadership and to Aila, Lily, Michael and Rebecca from Year 5 for working so hard.  A special thank you and well done goes to Issy for being a great captain and being named by Christ the King as our player of the match.

Our next game is against St Thomas More in less than two weeks time!

Netball league match vs St. Osburgs

The netball team continued their winning streak yesterday afternoon when they defeated a very resilient and determined St. Osburgs team.

It was not a typical All Souls performance and for the first three periods the team struggled to find their rhythm and accuracy.  With 5 minutes of the match remaining we were trailing 4-3, at which point the team dug deep and showed their true quality, scoring 5 times in as many minutes to leave the final score 8-4.

Well done to all the team – many of whom were feeling unwell – for their determination.  A huge thank you also to the St. Osburgs team and staff for their sportsmanship and manners.

Catholic Cup Netball match vs Good Shepherd

A big well done to the netball team who played superbly to beat a very strong Good Shepherd team, 10-3 in the quarter-final of the Catholic Cup tonight.

The first few minutes of the game were very evenly fought, until we got our first goal.  After that we worked hard to build up a commanding lead, which was just too much for a very resilient Good Shepherd team to pull back.

Very proud again of our team: captain Ethan, Emma, Libby, Aliscia, Mia, Issy and player of the game, Owen, who took a nasty tumble to the floor in the final quarter, but recovered to watch the team see out the final few minutes.

We now await to see whether we will be facing St. Anne’s or St. Elizabeth’s in the semis.
