On Thursday 2nd November the Year 8 ‘A’ team, from Ryedale, went to Eskdale School to play netball in the District Tournament, hoping to keep the District Shield.
To start with, Ryedale played Caedmon College, with great play from everybody, resulting in a score of 19-2. This was also our biggest win! After this we went on to play Scarborough College, where the good play continued, winning again, 11-1. Afterwards, it was a close match with Lady Lumleys but we managed to pull through to win 9-3, with accurate shooting when we needed it. This ensured we continued playing in the semi-final where we were faced with Malton who we also defeated 6-0, with tight defending.
This lead to our fifth and final match against Saint Augustine’s ending in an 8-4 win, and making sure we kept the District Trophy. Overall, we scored 53 goals as well as being unbeaten. It was a very well-earned result by the whole team.
