Year 11 - Bristol Netball Quarter Final Game

Year 11 girls played Redland Green on Monday 14 November. The game started promising with Georgia Dowell and Chloe Bailey feeding in the ball to Emily Galiford and Lily Quinn. Some excellent interceptions from Lily Ross and Ishba Mahmood. Frankie Brown provided the pressure on the ball down the court. The first quarter finished with RGS leading by 1 point.

The game progressed with Cotham working hard to stop the counter attack of RGS however couldn't quite score as many goals as RGS.

The final score was 18 - 16 to RGS. Player of the match was Ishba Mahmood. A big thank you to Ishba and Georgia Stephenson for playing up for the year 11 team.
