The Beacon School (Year 9)
Fixtures & Results
The Year 9s travelled with a depleted team to RAAS last week. The girls got off to a slow start compared to the home side and trailed 1 goal to 8 by the time whistle blew to end the first quarter. However, the girls did not give up and fought until the final whistle with fantastic link up play from Attiya and Issy in the middle and some great blocks from Daisy in defence. Unfortunately, it was not enough to close the gap, the final score finished Beacon 9, RAAS 17. Congratulations to Eleana who was MVP!
Year 9 travelled to Reigate for their first fixture of 2022. Both teams were slow to start with Reigate taking the early lead. Beacon fought back, Izzy and Petra both dominated the middle third of the court allowing Attyia and Eleanor to put Beacon into the lead going into the final quarter. With both teams fighting for their first win of 2022, Reigate seemed to find their rhythm and put themselves back in front as the final whistle blew. Well done to all students involved and congratulations to Attiya who received player of the match.
Year 9 joined the Year 7's in travelling away for the first time this season against Oxted. The game was end to end with one point separating the teams at the end of the first quarter. Fantastic passing from Izzy and Attiya caught Oxted off guard and resulted in the girls taking the lead for the first time at the end of the second half. The girls battled well with some great interceptions from Petra and Emma to stop Oxted from scoring. However, as the light faded Oxted found a second wind and in the closing minutes of play scored some late goals to end the match 11 – 8. Well done to all girls involved it was a fantastic end to end match. Well played to Attiya who received player of the match.
