District Netball Tournament

The annual school netball tournament took place yesterday at Thomas Mills High School. There were 13 teams this year including a few B teams. Each team was given 4 matches and the best 4 teams would then go into the semi finals. Our B team did very well to win 2 of their games - ending up in 6th place. Olivia Lewis was in excellent form with her shooting. She scored 12 goals in her 4 matches.
Fram A team started with a tough match against Stonham which ended in a 2-2 draw. They then managed to comfortably win 2 games and scrape a narrow 3rd win against Debenham to progress to the semi finals. The semi was a tight and tense match v St Botolph's. They had a very tall and skilful goal keeper who managed to frustrate our shooters. The match was drawn and went to extra time (first team to score would be winners). Despite a lot of pressure and hard work the Fram girls could not find the crucial goal. St. Botolph's did manage after 7 minutes of extra time to score. They went on to win an exciting final v Stonham by 4 goals to 3. Fram won the 3rd / 4th place match v Laxfield by 4 goals to 1. Well done to the girls - they were exhausted after playing netaball for about two and a half hours.
