Anyway yass (that's a South African expression)! These Kingsmead girls were tall (and it's a good thing it wasn't St. Mary's, because they are so big and fast!!!), I thought we didn't have a chance.
So we got our positions and I was goal attack (the penny that had GA on it). What I have to do is I defend my goal--defence.and when I have the ball if I'm lucky I'll be close to the goal and shoot, if not I give it to my other teammates.
When we were about to play we had to run around the court seven times to warm up, quite tiring I know! Then we had to get into our positions. When the whistle blows the coach throws the ball high and the first centre who catches it can throw it to any of her teammates.
It was half time we had a pep talk (the time we tell the players what's wrong) so what I had to do is get free and shoot when I had the chance.
When the game finished everyone was so tired and the score was, we lost 0-3, but we played well. But to my surprise I saw my sister in the next door court (she was wing defence, and they won 4-3). After that we went to get an ice lolly and potato chips and then we went home.
Well Done Teammates!!!
