U14 Netball v Priory School, Tuesday 3rd October: Sidcot 4-8 Priory
The Netball match had a great start with the Sidcot girls playing with high amounts of enthusiasm and passion against the Priory girls. This continued throughout the game. In the second quarter the girls scored 3 goals which gave them a 1 goal lead. Unfortunately they could not sustain this lead in the second half when Priory substituted some stronger players. The game ended in an 8-4 loss but the girls held up their enthusiasm and passion all the way through the match and should be very proud of themselves.

Girls' U13 Netball v Priory Tuesday 3rd October: Sidcot 0-5 Priory
This turned out to be another even match, particularly in the first half. Both teams were making good interceptions but often failed to utilise the advantage completely. Sidcot Goal shooters had a few chances but it was Priory who managed to score first.
The score stayed the same for the whole of the first half. The Priory team was then changed for the second half and some stronger players particularly in attack were brought on. Our defence battled well but the tall shooters were more dynamic and accurate. The girls worked hard to gain possession and at times showed good pace. They were definitely playing with more confidence.

Girls' U15 Hockey v Priory School (A), Tuesday 3rd October: Sidcot 1-3 Priory
Sidcot started with conviction and attacked well, creating a number of early opportunities which, unfortunately were not converted successfully. This allowed Priory to work their way into the game and with only a couple of chances, they managed to nose ahead.
In determined fashion, Sidcot attempted to reply and were unfortunate not to score before the break.
The second half began brightly. Our girls’ began to use the space down the flanks more effectively and passing and movement was certainly slicker. This did not, however, prevent Priory from further scoring, leaving the Under 15s to chase the game. This they continued to do, scoring a fine consolatory goal deep in the second half.
Overall, an improving performance – but allowing further work to be done, particularly on goal-scoring strategies!
Super efforts from all.
