The St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School netball team was celebrating this week after winning The Thanet Passport Netball Cup for a record breaking third consecutive year.
With the pressure of retaining the double crown on such young shoulders, the seven strong team from drawn from Years 5 and 6 showed a fine grasp of netballing strategy, impeccable technique and quick reflexes under pressure as they won game after game, demolishing 3 opponents until the battle lines were drawn up against St Peter’s Junior School in a nail biting final.
With much vocal support courtside, the St Joseph’s team kept their manager, Mr Jones, on tenterhooks as the balance of played tilted between both determined and skilful teams. Eventually the deadlock was broken and St Joseph’s won 1-0 in an impressive last flourish finish to an exciting finale.
If further gilding of the lily was needed, Alex, our rock as Centre, was awarded star player of the Tournament by the judges.
