Senior Bs lose to St Mary’s Newry

On Wednesday 7th of February Senior Bs lost to St Mary’s

The girls were quite nervous about taking on a match after having very little practise due to Christmas break and exams meaning sports hall was out of use however spirits were high as always as the team began to warm up before the match.
As the first quarter began the girls were quite slow while gradually getting back into the practise of playing together and using set plays. This resulted in an end score for this quarter of 1-8 to St Marys which was a disheartening score as we knew we could have done better.
However after a team talk and discussing where we went wrong. We identified our team’s strengths and weaknesses.

We excelled in the second quarter. Our defence pushed hard against their attackers and managed to begin intercepting a lot more frequently and therefore keeping possession of the ball and began reaching the shooters who managed to shoot another four nets giving the final score at the end of the second quarter to be 5-15.

Defence fought hard throughout the whole match to keep possession of the ball and keep the ball away from them and their attackers however St Marys attack was very strong meaning our defence was worked incredibly hard.

The perseverance from Ella McAllister, Beth McCullough and Claire Synott is to be noted as they kept up good spirit and played their best against a very difficult team.

For her persistence and incredible work at defence Ella McAllister was voted player of the match.

At the end of the match the score was 10-25 to St Marys however the girls had played an incredible match and played incredibly well together. St Marys were a very impressive team in all aspects and our girls played very well together and showed perseverance and great sportsmanship right until the end and were happy with their efforts.

BA Victorious in Semi Final of NI Plate 👏

On Wednesday 28th February, Banbridge Academy Senior Netball team played against St Malachy’s in the semi-final of the NI Plate.

After being narrowly defeated by St Malachy’s earlier in the season, the Banbridge team were determined to come back better than ever.

Attack was strong in the first quarter with Sarah McCandless (WA) and Hannah Houston (C), allowing shooters Louise Priestley (GS) and Gemma Hassan (GA) to score 5 goals. The quarter ended with a score of 7-5 to St Malachy’s.

In the second quarter, Jessica Thompson (GS) joined Gemma in attack, and the girls managed to get a further 5 goals. Zara Sloan (C) replaced Hannah for this quarter and worked hard to keep possession of the ball. Defenders Emily Wright (GD) and Emma Boyd (GK) tightened their marking and with the help of Lauren McCourt (WD), took the lead from St Malachy’s. This meant the first half ended with a score of 10-9.

With Hannah and Aimèe Dickson (WD) back in play, the team managed to maintain their lead throughout the third quarter. With excellent defence from Emma and Emily, this quarter ended with a score of 16-14 to Banbridge Academy.

The match intensified in the final quarter with a win in sight. Banbridge defence prevented serveral goals from St Malachy’s, while their attack remained strong with a further 2 goals. The match ended with a score of 18-17 to Banbridge Academy.

Overall an outstanding victory for the team. The team will now play in the final of the NI Plate on Wednesday 21st March in Lisburn Raquets club.

Player of the match was Emily Wright. Well done girls!!
