The District Champs are being held in November, we look forward to seeing all of the girls running again and to more success!
Well done to the Presdales U16s County Football Team who beat Croxley Danes 9-0 last week. It was a dominant performance and a great start in the competition.
Highlights from the goals were a brilliant solo run from Eva Delaney where she dribbled past 3-4 players and coolly finished into the corner and quite an astonishing free kick from the half way line by Rimini Lowe which soared into the top of the net. The Croxley Dane supporters were heard to say ‘that was the best goal that’s ever been scored on this pitch!!’. There were a lot of gasps and open mouths!
Tonye Ikeyina was voted POM by Croxley Danes. Coaches POTM was Eva Delaney who was outstanding throughout. Well done girls and onwards to the next round!
Great performance by the Year 8s winning 6-1 in the District Football League against Chauncy this week. This is the first time that Presdales has competed in this competition and the girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
In a closely contested first half, Presdales were a little fortunate to go in at half time 3-1 up, however they dominated the second half and added a further 3 goals without reply.
Fantastic commitment from all the girls. Player of the Match was Mia Schillachi Rowland who scored 2 second half goals and excelled in the centre forward position. The Coaches Player of the Match was Annabel Guy who played a great game and never stopped running the entire match. Well gone to all the girls!
Congratulations to the Year 7’s who took part in the first netball match of the season against Simon Balle. The green team won 19-6 and the yellow team won 15-5. Green team Star Player as voted for by Simon Balle was Lottie Fellows. Yellow team Star Player as voted for by Simon Balle was Georgia Street. Well done to everyone who took part!
Excellent effort from both Year 8 teams this week. It was a combined effort due to Chauncy only having one team. Presdales won 14-3!
Star players were Darcey O’Reilly and Ellie Bradford.
Well played girls! Dresses look fab!
U14s and U16s
Well done to both the U14 and U16 netball teams who competed last Saturday in the county round of the National Schools Netball Competition!
The U14’s did amazingly in their pool, coming 2nd out of 7 and only losing one game. They unfortunately lost in the semi finals and came in 4th position overall! Star player was Darcy Bennett!
The U16’s were truly incredible. They won every single game in their pool, topping the group. They won 17-11 in the semis which meant they progressed to the finals. They then went on to remain UNDEFEATED all day and won the final 11-3 against Berkhamstead! Star player was Rosie Martin!
This means they are COUNTY CHAMPIONS and will progress through to the regional round in January!
Girls we are soo proud of you all! It was a long day but you were a credit to the school and a pleasure to be around!
