Team SJP took part in the Borough Netball competition and done extremely well, having been practising netball for 5 weeks during PE. The team felt very confident going into the competition. They got off to a great start beating both Green Lane and Knollmead in the first two group games. The deciding group game was against St Lukes, unfortunately St Joseph's lost out by 1 net losing 3-2. This meant that we finished the group in 2nd place and qualified for the plate competition. The plate competition required us to play 2 additional games with the chance of potentially playing in the plate final. St Josephs won both their additional games quite comfortably against Robin Hood & Fern Hill. This set up a plate final with St Mary's who had also been very unlucky to not have qualified for the main competition.
The plate final was an epic match of fast paced passing and excellent blocking and intercepting. It was a very tense game and eventually finished 2-2 in normal time. Overtime began with St Josephs winning the toss and having the centre pass. Within 30 seconds of overtime the ball was passed between Joel & Melanie and eventually Joel managed to keep his nerve and score the golden net, giving SJP the win.
