Hillcross Primary School
Netball Tournament Tuesday 31st October
On Tuesday 31st of October 2017 the Raynes Park Cluster gathered at Wimbledon High Sports Ground for the Y5/6 High 5 Netball Competition. With 13 teams taking part and placed in two separate groups, the tournament was packed full of matches across each of the three courts.
Hillcross took an A team and a B team and were placed in Group 1.
Group 1, the netball on display was of a very high calibre with all teams demonstrating some superb support play in moving the ball into the shooting area, as well as some resolute and well organised defending. The stand out result for Hollymount came in their well-orchestrated 3 - 0 victory over Hillcross B. Hillcross B did not let this disappointment deter them and regrouped well to earn a hard fought draw against Aragon. Aragon battled hard throughout the group stages recording a number of draws, before winning their match against Hollymount 2-0. St John Fisher equally displayed some fluid netball at times to record a team inspired 2-0 against Hillcross B. Merton Park, Hillcross A and West Wimbledon were the three front runners from this extremely competitive group, all recording some superb victories. Merton Park produced a sublime 2-1 victory over Hillcross A to take the second place in the group down to goal difference, but it was Hillcross A who had the better goal difference that secured this second spot, scoring an average of 2 goals each match. Which meant Hillcross qualified for the borough finals.
