St Margaret’s Champions!

Today, Beaconsfield sent two teams to play at the St Margaret’s Netball Tournament. Some great skills, sportsmanship and team work was seen by all and it was thoroughly enjoyable to watch. Team 1, who played in Division 1, had some great success winning their first 6 matches, but unfortunately lost their last game by 2 goals. This made them miss out on a spot in the grand final, but we were all very proud of their efforts, eventually coming 3rd. Team 2, who played in Division 2, only lost 1 game out of their 7 matches and that was enough for them to make the grand final. They played Berwick Fields, who was the team they had their only loss too, but through determination and effort they were victorious, winning the grand final 7 to 6. Shayla was also awarded MVP for the match. Well done to all the Beacy players and a big thank you to our coaches Kristen, Tauree, Shelley and Kerrie, and all of the parents for your support.
