Boston & District High 5 Netball Tournament.
On Wednesday 7th October twelve teams met up at Boston High School for the first of two netball tournaments. We entered two teams. The twelve teams were split into 4 groups. Group 1- Sibsey, Boston West and Sutterton all played each other. Group 2- Swineshead, Wrangle and St Mary’s played together. Group 3 saw Tower Road A play Tower Road B and Hawthorn Tree, while Group 4 consisted of Butterwick, Donington and Old Leake.
Each team then played two games before being placed in the playoffs. Group 3 saw Tower Road B play Hawthorn Tree first, with a score of 2-3 to Hawthorn Tree. Then Tower Road A played Tower Road B. They were all very excited by this and the end score was 6-0 to A team. Finally Tower Road A played Hawthorn Tree which resulted in a score of 6-0.
In the play offs- Tower Road B played Butterwick and lost 2-1. Then they played Wrangle who they beat and so ended in 11th place, leaving Wrangle in 12th place.
Meanwhile Tower Road A played Donington, in their first playoff. They all played very well but in the end Tower Road A won the game 3-1. This meant they faced Boston West, who had beaten St Mary’s in their semi-final, in the grand final. Everyone played very well and enjoyed the challenge, but in the end Tower Road A took the win. They will now represent Boston District in the County finals in March. The second team to represent the area will be decided at the next tournament.
Many thanks to all the parents and friends who came to support the teams. Thank you to all the Boston High school umpires.
