The Wynberg Netball teams matches against  Reddam were affected by 2 weeks of poor weather, however the fixtures were eventually completed on Monday 19 August.

The final under 14 game of the season against Reddam House produced a mixed bag of results.

On Wednesday, the 19th of August, the U16A netball team played against Reddam. We were quite nervous about the match, but with the motivation from our coach and the other U/16 netball players, we were ready by the time the whistle blew. Thanks to the shooters who gave us a great head start, we led throughout the match. As the match progressed it was got more and more intense. We kept pushing harder and harder because Reddam weren’t going down without a fight.  Wynberg managed to hold out for a win with a final score of 16-10. The support from our coaches and friends were much appreciated and their cheering kept us going.

The u16 B-side played a very good game against Reddam, we won our match 17-9. We played very well as a team and communicated amongst each other efficiently. The GA and GS ( Goal Attack and Goal Shooter), Lauren Weimers and Leigh Herman, played extremely well and were very accurate. We need to watch to whom we pass the ball to and must not rush our game in order to reduce the number of errors in our game.

The U14A team struggled for most parts of the game. Minor mistakes and failure to convert interceptions into goals proved costly. At the end of the first half, the team was down by 3 goals. In the second half, the team managed to score 3 goals. Reddam retaliated with an impressive 16, proving to be the more superior team. The team will have additional practice in an effort to correct these minor, but costly issues.

Player of the match was Captain Saarah Smith

The U14B team kicked off the afternoon with enthusiasm and vigour, but found the game a more considerable challenge compared to previous fixtures. The effect of an absence of a key player, Carrie Schaller, was felt. At half time, the score stood at 5 – 7 to Reddam. The team remained headstrong in the second half, not letting questionable officiating deter them. No goals were conceded in the second half. They ended the season on a high, winning this game 10 – 7.
