On a sunny Saturday my sister, Alosina had a netball game at the Auckland courts. She plays for the Eastern bays netball team. I went with my mum, my other sister Tinei and my cousin Apa'au.
When we got to the netball courts
I jumped out of the car and slammed the door shut. I could feel a nice breeze blowing in my face. For a while Tinei, Apa'au and I watched my sister warm up because my mum was busy parking the car. For their warm up they practiced intercepting. Intercepting is when you pass the ball then someone else will jump in and get it. It is kind of like piggy in the middle except you have to run and get the ball. After that we walked around to where Alosina would be playing her game. When we got there my mum was still nowhere to be seen. Finally she showed up. Then we sat down and waited for the game to start.
After a while the teams put their bibs on and jogged to where they were meant to be. Alosina was GA(Goal Attack)This meant that she was allowed to shoot.
Finally the umpire blew her whistle and the game was off. The other team was Panmure. After about five minutes Alosina's team had scored lots and lots of points but Panmure hadn't scored one. Then the buzzer went for the end of the first quarter and the opponents still remained scoreless. Alosina's team, Eastern Bays was on fire.
Then the whole team huddled in as a group and talked about what they needed to do better. It was time to go back on court so the teams did a quick cheer and hurried to their spaces. The umpire blew her whistle and the second quarter started. Alosina's team were still thrashing Panmure. It was goal after goal. Eastern Bays were going so good. In this quarter Panmure only got two.
At the end of the second quarter the score was 36-2 to us. I just knew we were going to win this game. We did. The end score was 69-3. Eastern Bays wasted Panmure.
