The hardest game ever!

Every Thursday night Pt England Netballers go up to the Auckland Netball Courts and play some really hard games. Last night our J1 s had another great battle against the Auckland Netball Centre (ANC) Year 6's. It was a very hard game but we played really well and never gave up chasing the ball. When the buzzer went for full time the final score was 15 to to us and 20 to them. Our player of the day was Latu she really deserved it.
