UNISS - Premier 1 Netball Tournament Week


The Premier 1 Netball team spent winter tournament week at
the UNISS tournament hosted by the Papakura Netball Centre,
competing with over 100 other secondary schools to qualify for
NZSS Netball Nationals.

Qualifying last year for the frst time in six years, the pressure was
on Epsom Girls to be one of the top 6 teams in the A-grade and
go to Nationals again.

In A grade pool play we met Kristin College (won 49-9) and then
St Cuthberts (won 44-19). The Epsom Girls showed that they had
matured into a skilful and composed team. Most pleasing was
having all 12 of the girls playing during this stage. We then met
Carmel College to contest top of the pool ranking, it was a good
early challenge for the team but Epsom Girls strong fnish saw
them win the game 41-31. So top of the Pool and onto Top 8 crossovers. One step closer to
qualifying. Wins against Hillcrest (39-20) and then Aorere (37-34)
Top 16 crossovers saw us meet the top two teams from other where we were able to play all 12 players again, saw us in the Top 4
pools. Ranking from this stage onwards would be important and of to NZSS Nationals FABULOUS!
top of the pool was the goal. Trident High School were strong and
we had to overcome their style of play (won 41-23) and then two On our last day and in atrocious weather we met St Kents to contest
mighty challenges St Pauls College and Rotorua Girls High. St a place in the fnal. The court surface matched with this teams vast
Pauls had only lost to St Kents by 1 goal in pool play and word was experience saw Epsom Girls well beaten, not a fair refection at all
out that Rotorua was a very smart team. Rotorua Girls had won on how far the girls had progressed this season. In our fnal game
their match against St Pauls by one goal. A determined Epsom against Rotorua Girls again, we battled some on court elements
Girls put together a fantastic display against St Pauls of disciplined and fnished with a 3 goal loss.
and smart netball to win by 10 goals (37-27). Against Rotorua
Girls, Epsom Girls staged one of the best comebacks down by Great results though for the week, lots of experience gained,
7 goals in the third quarter they showed great composure and qualifed for the prestigious NZSS Nationals and our young captain
heart to win the game by 1 goal in the last 20 seconds of the Greer Sinclair and young shooter Bianca Nagaiya named in the
game fantastic. tournament team.
