The Students vs Staff Netball took place on the 1st of May. Both teams raring to go, both not quite sure what they were up against!
The students came out strong in the first quarter turning over the ball and scoring the first two goals. The staff team started slow and maybe a little rusty, soon realising they needed to up their game if they were going to have any chance of winning!
With a few changes in the second quarter, the staff team seemed fully warmed up and the shots started going in with some fast passing up court and into the shooting circle. Both teams were playing well, with the high tempo match. The students thought this was going to be an easy game, but soon realised the staff team was hungry for the win. By the end of the second quarter the staff team was up 12-8.
In the third and fourth quarter there were lots of interceptions and the ball was going back and forth with not as many goals being scored!
In the end, the staff team managed to keep its lead and won the match end score 19-14.
There was some excellent shooting and defending by both teams, with a high energy atmosphere throughout the game, great team work and lots of laughs!
Well done to both teams!
