Amazing Achievement

Well done to our Year 5/6 Netball team that tonight competed in the T&W netball finals. The team had to play two group matches and the team that finished top of the group went through to the final. The first game was against Redhill and the game was end to end with both teams having lots of chances to score. After the 2nd third the game was locked at 1-1 but Redhill scored early in the final third to take a 2-1 lead. Grange Park never gave up though and soon the match was back level at 2-2. Then with the final throw of the match Redhill scored to win 3-2. It was always going to be difficult against a good team but this was made even harder when one of their players got injured so their defender who looked near enough impossible to get past played in DF for the 2nd and 3rd third instead of rotating. This meant we had to try and compete for 2nd place in the group. Grange Park got off to a flying start and were 4-0 against Newport after the first third. The 2nd and 3rd third were a lot closer and the final was 6-3. This meant Grange Park were through to the 3rd vs 4th play off against Apley Wood. This game was another close one but Grange Park ended up winning 2-1 to finish the tournament in 3rd place. An absolutely amazing achievement. Well done #TeamGP
