CROSSKEYS1 (55) vs HATFIELD BO (38)

A good win today for Crosskeys 1 today against a very enthusiastic Hatfield BO side who maintained there energy levels throughout the game.

From beginning to end we gelled well as a team. There was some great feeds into the shooting circle from Alice B and Katie who possessed great vision of the space. These were followed by great circle work and shooting from Lily and Steph. The defence maximised on 50/50 passes from the opposition gaining some great turnovers. This gave Crosskeys the edge which allowed us to take the win.

TURNFORD WINTER LEAGUE – 15th October 2018

CROSSKEYS 2 v CHESHUNT 1
We started the first quarter with a couple of players out of position which seemed to affect our play, and as we have done in a couple of matches this season, we gave ourselves a bit of a mountain to climb.

In Q2 we settled and the game started to feel more evenly matched with Emily and Charlie making some cracking interceptions in the circle and Nicola supporting them, and the attack, by bringing the ball down court and picking up a number of centre passes.

We started to really push on in Q3 with Emma swapping to C and Katie going into WA, both feeding some great balls into Nada and Lily who capitalised on the opportunities they had and we won that quarter.

Emma’s groin injury meant that she had to be swapped out in Q4 so we had another small reshuffle with a great mother and daughter pairing in defence trying to neutralise the oppositions attack for the short time we had to play.

In the end, the girls just had too much to do to catch up, but were rewarded with a point for their hard work and commitment until the end, with the score ending 24-40 to Cheshunt.

Our great team tonight were: Nada Tadros (GS), Lily Luffman (GK/GA/WA), Emma Kennett, (GA/C), Katie Woodstock (C/WA), Nichola Brichieri-Colombi (WD) Emily Jones (GK/WA), and Charlie Barton (GD)

Many thanks to our loyal band of supporters and Joyce Barton for guiding the team from the sidelines this evening.

CHELMSFORD U16′s JUNIOR LEAGUE CUP MATCH – 14th October 2018

CROSSKEYS U15′s 35 V FLAMES 5
After a tough match yesterday, the girls went out keen for a win! They scored 6 goals before they even gave Flames a look in. We need more of our matches to start like this: 8-1 at quarter time.

After an unsteady start on the second quarter when it was goal for goal for a few minutes, the girls got back into their stride and continued to increase their lead: 14-3 at half time.

A few changes going in to the third quarter. Defending was strong through out the court – it was great to see all players acting as defenders. ‘Big arms’ all over the place, and the other team didn’t know what to do and didn’t manage to score at all: 24-3!

The girls kept playing hard right to the end even though they had clearly won! 35-5. Impressive play today, lovely to watch.

Something to work on – snappier, stronger passes. Some play today was loopy, which we could get away with today, but won’t be able to against stronger teams.

A special mention has to go to Jen (Maxine Johnson) as she kept appearing from nowhere to intercept and several times she kept balls on court that rest of us would have considered out of play. Exciting to watch!

Thanks to Lisa Best for coaching.

Niamh, Mollie (Nina Fletcher), Beth, Freya (Natalie Dalberto), Jen, Lucy (Sarah Jane Djemal), Erynn and Meg (Alison Dowton)

BISHOPS STORTFORD LEAGUE – 14th October 2018

CROSSKEYS 3 v HOTSHOTS

We had a good start to the game with our defence, Lizzy Everett, Beth and Sarah, keeping on their players. The ball was brought down accurately to myself and Julie in the goal third by Hayley and Rianna. Second quarter Klara came on and made some strong passes into the goal third. However due to the wet and slippery court, some mistakes where made. The ball was very slippery making us loose some balls. Third quarter was better for us as we brought back a few goals and won this quarter. However Hotshots where keeping the lead all the way through the game. Not sure on the score but Hotshots managed to take the lead.
Well played ladies, a tough game with the weather and the team. A few pushes here and there but we fought through till the end. A huge congratulations to Sarah for getting POM, well deserved as you made some great interceptions throughout the game. Thank you also to Klara and Julie for playing for us today.
Team: Abigail Stickland, Julie Allen, Rianna Collins , Hayley Jones, Beth Parker,Sarah Keeling , Lizzy Everett and Klara Dita.

BISHOPS STORTFORD LEAGUE – 7th October 2018

CROSSKEYS 1 vs WODSON PARK,
A great game was played down at Bishop Stortford this morning. It was neck and neck for the first two quarters with both teams playing some very nice netball.
But going into the third quarter the defence made some excellent interceptions and turnovers that we began to take a lead.
We kept the ball safe in the last two quarters and the attack moved well around the circle, despite the aggressive defence on the opposition making it difficult for us.
The end score was 40-31 to us :)
Thank you to everyone who helped us out today, Kirsty Herbet for scoring and the supporters who came to watch.
The team – Katie Chimes, Jo Wacey, Millie Bolton, Harriet Herbet, Ellie Lewis, Alice Boulton, Steph Pathak and myself.
well done POM Millie Bolton.

Squad – Klara, Mollie F, Freya D, Jen J, Megan D, Lucy D Beth P & Summer who stepped in at the last minute when we heard that Caitlin had ended up having stitches in her hand and Beth BC’s back was playing up. Thank you Summer.

The team had 5 matches today. The first two were against Poole Crystals and WP Blades which unfortunately we lost. These two teams were extremely well drilled and their shooters couldn’t miss despite our efforts of a strong defence.
The third game was against Lovell Aztecs and was a much closer game with us showing some great Netball skills. We made some great turn overs from the defence and then taking the ball down to our shooters. First Win 4-3,
Game 4 was against Westex Ocelots we again started strongly and took advantage of the turn overs. 2nd Win 8-2.
Game 5 – was a very close game. The girls showed great determination and team spirit and took to a another Win 7-6
Wendy was extremely proud of the girls today as they played some great Netball in terrible conditions. They showed great team spirit working hard for each other in different positions throughout the day.
Well done Girls !!
Thank you to Martin Doon Parker for being the scorer and the other supporters for keeping the girls fed and watered

HARLOW LEAGUE – 2nd October 2018

Crosskeys 6 Vs Tegate 6

From the outset this was an exciting game against a very physical Tegate side. The first 15 minutes saw both teams capitalising on their centre pass and the score remained equal. However just before half time Tegate forced us to make a few errors allowing them to take the lead. Half time score 24-19 to Tegate.

After a few positional changes we went back on raring to go. Every player gave it their all. We defended Tegate’s extremely tall goalshooter well, rattled her, causing her to make some errors. The centre court worked tirelessly to bring the ball skillfully up the court to our 2 shooters who despite getting battered worked incredibly hard and shot superbly.

Our hard work paid off and 2 minutes before full time we were level.

Tegate Centre and we intercepted the ball and despite their best efforts to regain possession we capitalised on their error. We played extremely safe netball in the last 30 seconds and even managed to sneak in a last minute goal making the final score 35-33 to Crosskeys.

Well done girls, a great game tonight and a well deserved win.

POM went to Hannah Bishop. Well done, Great shooting and play Hannah.

Team :- Klara Fridrichova, Orla Peake, Jennifer Johnson, Hayley Jones, Megan Williams, Caitlin Best and Hannah Bishop.

Thank you to Sue Bishop for scoring and to all our supporters for your encouragement.

TURNFORD SUMMER LEAGUE – 18th April 2018

CROSSKEYS v St JAMES
Right from the start of this game Crosskeys showed they were a stronger side managing to make turnovers and get the ball down to the end of the court. Even though we seemed to slow down in the second quarter allowing our opposition to gain a few points as they started to make interceptions. However in the last 2 quarters we made a few changes and we all stepped it up with some excellent defence making some great interceptions and rebounds and the attack working well to bring the ball up the court, we ended the game with a 36-28 win. Well played everyone and thank you to Sarah for coaching.

Team: Lily Luffman, Orla Peake, Beth Parker, Ellie Vears, Hannah Bishop, Megan Williams, Lisa Davey

CROSSKEYS 7 v LEE PARK
Div 5
Having started off the league with lots of players in this team it was a struggle to get a squad out tonight.
After some jigging a combo of players was formed.
As we all know playing as a new squad is not easy. However, I can say that I was very proud of the youth today some of whom were playing their first adult match.
Team tonight:
Nicola Arnold, Leah Shipp,  Rianna Collins, Sarah Keeling, Summer Wimbleton, Emily Jarrett, Klara Fridrichova and Julie Moore
Qtr 1 – 9-11
Qtr 2 – 14-24 but of a wobble here.
Bit of a shift around and we then managed to win the next 2 qtrs
Qtr 3 – 21-29
Qtr 4 – 24-31
Good effort girls and I hope that everyone enjoyed the match

BOSHOPS STORTFORD LEAGUE- 8thApril 2018

CROSSKEYS 1 Vs TEGATE

This was such an exciting game against a very tough and physical Tegate team. Despite our side never having played together before and many of us playing our second game of the day we came out fighting with brilliant energy and determination!

The first quarter saw Tegate pull ahead, their very tall and experienced GS popped in the shots whilst their physical defence were tight on our attack. We kept positive and started to gel as a team beginning to move the ball more easily down the court as the game progressed. In the second quarter we narrowed the lead Tegate had gained.

By the third quarter we had come into our own. Alice Miles at GA worked the ball seamlessly around the circle with very accurate long distance shots and Freya Rowson had a brilliant game popping in shot after shot despite lots of contesting from the Tegate defence. Our centre court Estelle Williams, Lily Luffman and Emily Jones worked tirelessly, utilising every turnover and keeping the ball safe. Wendy Chambers in defence kept the GS shooting from a distance and helped work the ball back up the court after every turnover.

A cracking last quarter and final few minutes saw us draw even ending the game 48-48!

Such an exciting game with brilliant team spirit despite a miserable rainy morning! Well played everyone.
Thank-you Marion Hooke for organising a team and well done to Estelle for a well deserved player of the match.
Charlie Barton

CROSSKEYS vs SWANS 2

Sorry for the late report, but the girls had another excellent game yesterday morning. We have really gelled as a team and it is evident in our play. We began with a strong lead, with the defence, Charlie Barton, Nicola, Wendy Chambers making some great turnovers and good movement around the circle with Ellie Lewis and Alice Boulton creating easy high balls going into the circle to Freya Rowson, resulting in a lead of 36-12 at half time.
Our game was easy and we won every quarter, increasing our goal difference by more and more each time.
The end score was 63-22 to us.

Well done to everyone for playing, only one more game to go now so we can get promotion!!
POM was well deserved and went to Charlie Barton

BISHOPS STORTFORD LEAGUE – 25th March 2018

CROSSKEYS 2 vs PINKS

We had a bit of a random team for our game today with our defence having to step in to umpire, however we played a great game.
In the first quarter our defence was on top form and we started to put pressure onto pinks team, but due to some tall defenders on their side, the ball was struggling to go into our circle. Pinks made some turnovers and started to dominate the game leaving it at 12-8 to pinks in the first quarter.
After a change of some positions, and Freya Rowson giving us some new extra height in the circle, our game started to flow and we came back strong. We started to get on a roll and we were putting up great shots and making turnovers, leaving the score at 26-26 at half time.
By the third quarter we had really gelled and our team was making some great interceptions and turned over so many balls. We were now playing our own game and we really brought it back, making it 50-35 to Crosskeys after the third quarter.
The fourth quarter we kept our speed and still fought for every ball. There were some more great interceptions by the defence and shots were going in easily. The end score of the game was 62-47 to us :)

Thank you to Wendy Chambers for stepping in as our umpire we really appreciate it, and thank you to all the supporters on the sidelines who really encouraged us today, it was a great game we all played so well.

The team was – Charlie Barton, Alex Povey, Kirsty Herbert, Ellie Lewis, Harriet Herbert, Freya Rowson and Alice Miles, and thank you to Haley for helping us in the first quarter

HERTS LEAGUE – 4th March 2018

CROSSKEYS 3 vs TURNFORD
Well done girls today on a comfortable win (53- 34)! First quarter was level so we knew we had to work harder against a young Turnford side.

Everyone worked really well and our attack did some lovely feeds into Lucy & Becky. And great tips from our defence.
Long arms over that feed made Turnford panic and worked in our favour.
Something to work on at training is grabbing in the ball. A few dropped balls lost us turnovers.

Thanks Michelle Allen for scoring.

A well contested game from start to finish today. Mystix were a feisty team with some very skilful players but fortunately Keys were able to match the skills and edged in front with some great shooting, brilliant court play and impressive defending.

CROSSKEYS 3 v WATFORD PREM
A great win for us 38/26 putting us into third position. A big thanks to Jess Enmokwu for stepping in and playing GK as Kate Pink was on hols. Jess, Charlie Barton and Emma Kennett worked tirelessly in defence getting an amazing number of turn overs for us. I’ve got to say centre court and attack were both a bit wobbly to day but we got there, my players of the match go to all three defenders.

As a team we all played a great 3rd quarter which ensured our win, next week we need all four quarters to be this good! I know we can win our next three games…we just need to believe in ourselves!

Team to day was Molly Fozzard, Hannah Hogan, Joanne Wacey, Charlie Barton, Jess Enmokwu, Katie Woodstock, Emma Kennett and Joyce Barton.

Thanks to Steve for scoring and Sue Woodstock and Vicki Brice for supporting!

CROSSKEYS 5 v BISHOPS STORTFORD
27-34
Right from the start Stortford proved to be a strong team with a fast attack and tall defence, throughout the game Crosskeys stayed fighting making some excellent interceptions and managing to gain a few turnovers keeping the score close during the match, with he first half ending 10-15. Even though we were 5 down we stayed strong bringing the score up with a difference of 2 during the second half. However some mistakes were made and Stortford pulled away. Overall Crosskeys were strong throughout with some amazing interceptions carried out by the defence and some quick attacking work. Unfortunately we lost with just a 7 point difference ending the score 34-27. Well played everyone and thank you to Karen for coaching us.

BISHOPS STORTFORD LEAGUE – 18th February 2018

CROSSKEYS 3 vs SWANS 3

It was a very close game today and both Swans and ourselves played some lovely netball.
Throughout the game we made some excellent well executed passes, created some well timed moves which allowed us to create great space and defended superbly throughout the court, limiting Swans options on a number of occasions and the pressure we applied caused them to make numerous errors.
That said, going forward we need to work on not throwing away the ball after making an interception and making the correct pass at all times ( we sometimes made it very difficult for ourselves by not playing the best ball ).

In my opinion from quarter 2 we dominated the game but didn’t make it easy for ourselves by not playing our game and maintaining possession at crucial times.
However our determination and keeping level headed throughout the game shone through and we secured a win of 32-29.

Well done Team 3. POM went to Phoebe Poulter. Well done Phoebe, fantastic play.

Team :- Sarah Parker, Beth Parker, Amy Carpenter, Katie Whitehead, Harriet Herbert, Phoebe Poulter and Abigail Strickland

Thank you to our loyal supporters and to Marion Hooke for umpiring. Greatly appreciated.

CROSSKEYS 1 -49 – SWAN -23
This morning it took Keys 1 a little time to adjust to yet another playing combination! At the end of the first quarter the score was 10 -10 so all to play for. During the second quarter our shooters “got their eye in” and began to score freely thanks to some excellent feeds from the hard working mid-court trio. Defensively we were “masterful” and definitely in-charge constantly applying pressure on both shooters and making it incredibly difficult for the Swan attack. By the end of the third quarter the result was beyond doubt! 41 -22. With only six minutes to play in the final quarter Keys were on for a convincing win.
A massive THANK YOU to Joyce Barton and Emily Jones for playing today and an even bigger THANKS to Phoebe Poulter for deputising so impressively for an unwell Megs (hope you feel better soon Meg) and staying on to play a second game – and winning a second POM of the morning (hope you are not too bruised after your tumbles).

BISHOPS STORTFORD LEAGUE – 11th February 2018

CROSSKEYS vs RICMOND

We had a tough game today, both teams competing to win the league.
In the first half of the game we had good movement in the centre court and some great defence, but unfortunately Richmond had some strong interceptions and began to dominate the game leaving us with 17-10 to Richmond at half time.
However, in the third quarter, Crosskeys started to fight for the ball and really put our all into it. We made great interceptions and really turned it around. the end score of the third quarter was 20-17 to Richmond.
We were extremely determined in the last quarter and still played some very good netball, and movement around the circle was getting very sharp, but unfortunately we just missed the win, and the end score was 27-24 to Richmond.
well done to everyone, we really tried our hardest but the odds were just not in our favour this morning x

Well done to Charlie Barton(POM), and thank to Katie Miles, Georgina Dobson and Molly Fozzard for helping out our team today!

CROSSKEYS 3, 44 – PINK LADIES2, 26

We have had a difficult few weeks with the results not going their way so today we wanted to get back on track and prove a point. We had a bit of a wobbly first quarter and took a while to find our flow but once we settled into the game we took charge and dominated the game.

At times our play was a little scrappy but we never gave up and executed some lovely play throughout the court making some lovely drives forward feeding our attacking circle well.

A good secure win for Crosskeys 3 which was very well deserved.

Team :- Lisa Best, Klara Fridrichova, Amy Carpenter, Hayley Jones, Harriet Herbert, Claire Murphy and Abigail Strickland.

POM :- Abigail Strickland. Congratulations Abbie.

CROSSKEYS PINKS, 41 SPARKS 2, 20
This game started off quite even with goals coming from centre pass. Sparks only having 6 players! Gradually Crosskeys eased ahead by a few, thanks to some excellent defensive turnovers which resulted in goals from our hotshot shooters Stephanie Pathak (Ludlow) and Fran Waller. Just on the stroke of half time the Sparks GS took a tumble and was unfortunately unable to continue in the game, which took them down to only 5 players! Crosskeys now pulled even further ahead although I will say, credit to the five still on the court, they never gave up.
Big THANK YOU to Greta who stepped in to play only yesterday and did a grand job. Thank you to Rianna’s mum for scoring and our little band of parent supporters for braving the cold this morning.

HERTS LEAGUE – 4th February 2018

Crosskeys 2 vs. Hornets 5
50-40

Only on friday we managed to claw together a starting 7 for this mid table battle. Thankfully Jess Enemokwu came to our rescue and extended a home visit from uni. LIFE SAVER.

Hornets started the game fast and accurate as we expected and the first qtr didn’t see either pulling away with a lead. Defence turned some excellent balls our way breaking down their feeds into their D and the centre court did well to support the ball up to myself and Becky.

2 qtr and we went 1 goal down (I think) but it was well within our reach to pull it back….. and that we did! 3rd qtr saw some awesome defence and we began to pull away – Emma and Lili supporting the tireless Georgia Goodall which really helped get the ball down our end quickly. Emily and Becky linking up with speed an accuracy popping the ball in to great shooting positions.

Training was so apparent in our play today, we closed down the feeds and we confidently extended our lead to the end whistle. Winning by 10 goals!

Today showed what being part of a team is all about. Everyone gave 100% even in positions a few don’t usually play and our determination got us a brilliant result. I’m absolutely buzzing. WELL DONE TEAM!

Thank you to all pur supporters today. It’s so encouraging to hear the voices on the side lines. Gives us all such a boost.

Huge thank you to Karen . Not only have you been a star this week assisting me trying to find players, the entire team took on your advice every qtr and it made such a difference.

Becky and Emily, please pass on our thanks to your dad for scoring for us today! (Nice not to be scoring from a cold cupboard, like last wk in st.albans!)

Massive kudos to our team today: Myself, Becky Allen Georgia Goodall Emily Allen Lili Herbert Emma Wacey Jess Enemokwu

This was a tough contest against a strong physical side and I’m so glad we came out the clear winners.

CROSSKEYS 4 vs ISSI COUGARS

We got off to a brilliant start in the first half moving the ball quickly down the court and outrunning the opposition to give us a steady lead which we maintained throughout.

Amazing shooting from Molly and Lily who worked together seamlessly in the circle, out thinking the defence and fighting for every rebound. The centre court play came together allowing us to quickly work the ball down the court and make the most of every turn over by the defence.

Big thank you to Lily and Jess for staying on and playing two games and also to Karen for coaching.

Well played everyone. Lovely win for us.

Team: Jess Barclay, Georgina Dobson, Emma Kennett, Katie Woodstock, Lily Luffman, Molly Fozzard.

CROSSKEYS 5 v EPPING
This was an unlucky loss as the whole team played well throughout, attack worked very well getting the ball in the shooting circle and Hannah and Lily carried out some amazing movement enabling them to shoot. The first half was close ending 14-15. During the second half we still worked hard as a team however a few held balls were given away and Epping got the better of us, moreover halfway through the second half unfortunately we were a player down and had to drop the WD, However we kept our heads up and carried on playing our game. The game ended on a 32-18 loss,   Well played everyone and thank you to Karen for coaching us.

HARLOW LEAGUE – 16th January 2018

Tonight team CROSSKEYS 2 faced TEGATE 1. We knew this would be tough competition from the off in light of the recent injuries to our defence (across the board) but luckily for us Jess B stepped in for Jo and was linking up seamlessly with Emma.. Defence were solid and we did turn them over a few times but we just weren’t able to capitalise. Lovely speed up the court and support from Emily and some fast drives from Georgia and Amber feeding nicely into Becky and pinging it into me. Great work!

We noted alot of unforced errors throughout the match which we need to work on in training (ironing this glitch out and I reckon we can definitely beat them!) all in all we didn’t give them a comfortable victory and fought well not letting them run away with a big unjustified scoreline.

Final score 31 – 40 to Tegate.

Team tonight, myself, Becky, Georgia, Amber, Emily, Emma-Louise, Jess Barclay. Thanks so much for helping tonight Jess, you worked tirelessly against their tall GS. Big S/O to Jo Montague for scoring

Well played girls!

Crosskeys 3 v Epping 1
Harlow League 9.15
Crosskeys 19 – Epping 21

With a number of new players stepping in tonight, we took a bit of time to get into our rhythm against a very strong Epping team with a very tall shooter!

We went down 5 goals in quick succession but thanks to some amazing interceptions and very strong defending by Kate and Charlie, we managed to contain them and finished down 9-11.

After the half time chat with Coach Karen and Joyce, we came come out even more determined. Zoe had the job of trying to neutralise their very strong GA in order to keep their score down and on the break Katie, Georgina, Charlie and Hannah pushed down with speed and determination to try to feed the ball in which was tough given their defensive height advantage.

This half saw some unbelievable shooting from distance by Hannah and Molly and more great interceptions by our defence and at one stage we even managed to draw level.

However, they were just that bit too strong for us tonight and the game ended 19-21.

Disappointing for the team but everyone gave their all – the super squad tonight were: Kate Pink, Charlie Barton, Zoe O’Grady, Katie Woodstock, Georgina Dobson, Hannah Hogan and Molly Fozzard.

Many congratulations to Charlie who was POM.

HERTS LEAGUE – 14th January 2018

CROSSKEYS 2 v OMEGA

With Jo Montague still injured, myself with a bad toe and Amber playing for ER we knew we needed to bring someone up to make our 8th player. Thank you Jess Barclay for stepping in as a strong defender.

We started off slow and it took us a while to get into the game as we fell behind by 6 goals. Second quarter we made a small change, Jess moving to WD putting Lili on the bench. We started to pull it back but Omega’s tall GS was putting the pressure on, not missing a single shot.

Third quarter Emma Wacey went to WD, Jess changed to GD and Lili came back on at WA giving Emily a rest and Goodall to C. It was then neck to neck, with one goal in it and level at some points! Now I know what it feels like when Karen says her heart rate is going up!

Going into the fourth quarter only 1 goal down, Emily came back on at WA and we also swapped defence bringing Cam out to GD and Jess into keeper. Although we were making brilliant interceptions unfortunately the pressure got to us and we kept giving the ball away with unforced errors.

Highlight of the game was Goodall making two amazing interceptions in a row!
Something to think on at training is we need to start pushing our players up the court.
Omega used the tactic of keeping the ball with short fast passes to delay time by shouting ‘fast net fast net’. We need to next time jump in and intercept those balls.

Final score 54 59. Unfortunately it wasn’t our day today girls but everyone gave 110% trying really hard. Just an annoying result when we were so close.
Well played everyone, thanks to Jo Montague for scoring and Jess for stepping in.

CROSSKEYS4 vs BISHOPS STORTFORD 2

First game back after the Christmas break and we got off to a strong start with lots of fast play in the centre court from Emma Kennett Katie Woodstock and Georgina Dobson keeping stortford on their toes. Great shooting from Alice Miles and Lily Luffman meant we capitalised on every turn around from the defence – Wendy Chambers getting some brilliant rebounds and interceptions.

In the second half we increased our lead and gelled even more as a team. Katie and Georgina gave some lovely feeds into the shooters and worked the ball well around the circle against a strong Stortford attack. Emma at WD got lovely interceptions and helped bring the ball speedily down the court!

Well played everyone, lovely game and nice to start the season off with a win. The final score was 31-19.

Team: Lily (GS), Alice (GA), Georgina (WA), Katie (C), Emma (WD), Me (GD) and Wendy (GK). Thank you Karen Elizabeth Heskett for coaching and all the parents for supporting!

CROSSKEYS v TEGATE

Despite only having 6 players, throughout the game the whole team played amazing constantly on the ball and looking for interceptions. This was a tough game against Tegate, defence making some great interceptions to take possession of the ball and attack working well to get the ball back down the court. Unfortunately Tegate had the upper hand, we ended the first half 7-14 to Tegate, although we still battled through the second half Tegate managed to pull away despite all players giving their all ending the game 36-10.

Well done to everyone, especially Alex and phoebe helping us out after playing a game, and thankyou aislinn for coaching us.

CROSSKEYS 3 V KESTRALS
Slow start tonight after our long Christmas break with a slightly different line up to adjust to.
Ended first half down against the experienced Tegate team who played with 6 by 21-12.

Second half saw us get our flow and some good feeds by Lili and Jess W saw Freya get her mojo flowing and sink the goals ably assisted by Hannah H back from injury.
Second half was much closer , losing only by 3 and gained a point losing the match 41-30.

Lovely to have Meg Pointer back from uni and Freya R playing, defending with Kate who gave 100%.

Well played everyone

CROSSKEYS 2 vs. BISHOPS STORTFORD1

We took a few minutes to settle back in to this first game after Xmas, but when we did we stormed ahead. Defence turning lots of balls and some fast drives into the corner pockets saw us capitalise ending the first half 13-9 with some great shooting!

I didn’t want to change the second half as we had just found our stride. However, Bishops Stortford started to claw it back and close the 4 goal lead – getting as close as 1 in it at times. (Thanks for the nail-biter girls!) We kept our heads and final score was 25 – 23. A win for Crosskeys to start the year! Ya!

Team tonight. Amber Moore, Becky Allen, Georgia Goodall, Georgia Das, Emily Allen, Emma Wacey and Kate Pink (Thanks for giving us the height in defence we so desperately needed tonight!) Well done girls!

Thanks to Hannah for scoring and Karen for coaching

Crosskeys 6 23 V Mark Hall Ladies 20
This was a nail- biting game from the first to the last whistle. Mark Hall Ladies were fielding possibly their strongest team and Keys 6 were missing some notable players but the 14 players on court tonight gave 200% and despite being 4 goals down at half time Keys were not going down without a “fight”. At half time we made a few tactical swItches which I am sure influenced the final result.
Congratulations to Nicola Arnold and Lucie Sudworth for POM nominations from the umpires.
Squad:- Nicola Arnold, Fran Waller, Harriet Kirsty Herbert, Lucie Sudworth (2nd game tonight at C), Emma Thomson, Megan Pointer (2nd game tonight at GD) , Amelia Davies (3rd game tonight at GK).

Some spectacular shooting tonight from Nada Tadros and Alice Miles saw Keys 4 cruise to a comfortable win against Tornado’s but I also have to say a huge THANK YOU to the Uni girls for turning out to play for us tonight in force (and multiple games) – You were stars all of you and it is so lovely to have your skills back on court when you are home. Another thank you to Lily Luffman for playing two games tonight.
Squad: Nada Tadros, Alice Miles, Lily Luffman, Lucie Sudworth, Estelle Williams , Nichola Colombi, Amelia Davies.

BISHOPS STORTFORD LEAGUE-19th November 2017

CROSSKEYS 2 v PASSMORES

Since we only had three original players playing for the team today it took a while for the seven players to gel on court.

Our first quarter was a little slow for us, with hesitant passes and not pushing the ball forward when we had the time and space to do so. Going back into the second quarter we added height into the circle from Harriet Nicholson who rushed to the game with little notice, so thank you Harriet. This did help us regain possession but again the turn overs didn’t always result in a goal. Claire K had some outstanding shots with some good feeds from the attacking circle.

Half time saw us only two goals down and this was due to our hard working defence and the fact our attacking was now starting to look for their shooters rather than sending the ball laterally in the attacking third.
Sadly, we just couldn’t make up the goals we lost from the first quarter, and lost the game

Considering the squad was put together last minute I felt we played considerable well, especially against a very pushy and verbal opposition.

Thank you to all our supporters , Mel for coaching and umpiring.

Squad: Alex Povey, Ellie Lewis, Alice Boulton
Huge thanks to Claire K, Jordan Hinks, Katie Whitehead (POM ) Harriet Nicholson and Kayla.

Score 35-39

HARLOW LEAGUE- 8th November 2017

CROSSKEYS v BISHOPS STORTFORD

From the start of the game there was fast play all throughout the court and attack was strong, we ended the first half leading 11-8. In the second half the whole team worked together well to get the ball from one end to the other with some fantastic tips and interceptions from the defence getting it down to the shooting end and with some lovely movement in and around the circle we managed to get some lovely shots in. However playing an experienced Stortford side they managed to pull it back from the first half ending the game 24-21. Unlucky girls, well played to everyone and thankyou to Aislyne and Karen for coaching us.

POOLE TOURNAMENT – 7th October 2017

U16 – Poole Tournament & Tegans 16th Birthday ????????
All the girls were there bright and breezy it was Sarah Beth and I who were late, but this did not cause any probs the girls had started warming up and we went to court and smashed our first 3 games. 4th game was against Trafford – we knew that this was going to be a tough & physical game. The girls gave 100% even when up against some dodgy umpiring but we just could not pull it off. 5th game, we took another win . Now we had our longest break between matches which should not have thrown us but I am not quite sure what happend. We went back on playing Poole. The girls seemed to be in second gear and Poole just capsulised on this. Not only did we lose but we saw Hannah go down with a knee injury. Last game of the day and we saw the girls dig deep and pulled the 5th win off.
So 5 wins 2 loses not enough to see us into the semis / unlucky girls.
Team. Hannah, Nada, Olivia, Lily, Meg, Beth, Ellie, Tegan & Orla
Thank u to all the supporters for a great day & Sarah Parker for driving.

HARLOW LEAGUE – 3rd  October 2017

CROSSKEYS 2 vs. TEGATE 1

Grid locked roads into Harlow meant we had to face TG with only 5 players on the court. Baring a few, we were also facing their East Region side.. 15 mins into the first half and we were holding our own with them only managing a 2 goal lead on the 5 of us. Great steady play = opportunities to capitalise on.

Luckily Emily Allen and Becky Allen got the better of the traffic and got straight to work. No half time due to the late start and no adjustments to the starting side.

Great defence girls against a forceful side and really good efforts Georgia Das, Emma Wacey and Amber Moore who did all the leg work in the first 15 mins bridging the gap for the missing girls and still kept up the energy for the entire game.

Unfortunately we never did close their initial lead and the final score was 36 – 29.

Well deserved p.o.m (both Keys players) Emma and Amber.

Well played girls – I’m really sure we could beat these girls, not the threat I thought they’d be.

Team tonight: Jo Montague Emma Wacey, Emily Allen, Georgia Das, Becky Allen, Amber Moore and Lucy  Skelton

CROSSKEYS 2 V WATFORD PREM1

I think we all underestimated Watford and what they were capable of. The whole way through the game we had to fight to win. We fought for the ball, putting what we practised in training into play. Ending both first and second quarters 4 goals up. Then we went down by 7 by the end of the third quarter.. letting Watford get to us.
However we pushed till the end and played as a team, losing only by 5 goals.. 41 – 46. Unlucky girls, we’ll get them next time!

Thank you for Claire Goodall Shona Mccabe and Joanne Wacey for coaching and helping on the side line today. Thanks to all our supporters & to Michelle Allen for scoring.

CROSSKEYS 5 v TEGATE
32-16

A tough match last night against a very strong opposition, who came across as an experienced tegate team we were please to get a point for half of their score. We started off strong however felt the loss of Olivia Burn, hope you get better soon. Tegate pulled away from us in the second half and we battled well with some of the girls playing out of position. Final score 32-16. Some great play from all of the girls although some sloppy balls at times, well done to Orla Peake umpires POM.

CROSSKEYS 3 vs SWANS 3

We all started a little nervous as this was our first time playing together as a squad but once we found our rhythm we played some lovely netball throughout the court.

It was a close match, both teams taking the lead during the game but eventually we pulled away and achieved a well deserved win 43-37.

Well done girls/ladies you all played fantastically.

CROSSKEYS  PINKS vs RICHMOND
A mixed line up today, but we worked well as a team from the offset and won the first quarter by 3, 12-9.
A strong shooting pair of Molly Fozzard and Steph worked well in the circle, with good feeds from the centre court attackers, Charlie Barton and Kayla, meaning we won the second quarter by another 3, 26-20.
We won’t talk about the third quarter (they nearly got us), so we went into the final quarter only 1 up, 33 – 32 and it was their centre….
After a pep talk from Marion Hooke about keeping our cool even when the score was close; we went on, got the turn over and we were off. Lisa, Megan Jarvis, and I worked hard in defence stopping all but 3 goals in the final quarter.
Final score 41-33.
A great win, and a lovely match to play in.

CROSSKEYS 2 v OMEGA

We knew this was going to be a tough first game for us as Omega have just come down into our league.
As a new squad with players that haven’t played with each other we soon found our feet and adapted quickly.
First quarter finished, Keys 9 – 8 Omega .. a close game throughout but as a squad we worked hard. Some fab interceptions from Emma Wacey.

2nd quarter Amber came on as GA and Emily at WA. Omega stayed hot on our toes leading this quarter to end 20 all.

3rd quarter we brought on fresh legs Lili at WA and Myself at C. We managed to slowly start to pull it back ending five goals ahead. Keys 35 – 30 Omega.

In the last quarter we was determined to win. Only change was Emily back at WA. Good defending and more accurate passing helped us get the ball up the court and into the shooters.
Final score Keys 48 – 40 Omega.

Well done girls great first win! Thanks Robyn for playing up to help our defence. Also Thank you to Joanne Wacey for scoring, Karen Heskett for coaching and to all our supporters.

A very sweet victory against a very physical Asco last night despite some dodgy umpiring on our gk we managed to stay ahead in every quarter. There was good passing into the shooting circle and some accurate shooting we managed to come out of the first quarter 5-8 Great play from all the girls we pulled away even further in the second quarter. In the third quarter Asco managed to pull back some however we still managed to keep the lead despite being knocked around the court by flying Asco players.

33-50

It was a tough game tonight as we played with only 6 players for the first 5 minutes and the opposition were very strong, we ended the first quarter with 13-7. The second quarter we started off well clawing back a few points giving it our all however during the end and in the third quarter there was poor passing all round the court which lead to Hawks getting many interceptions. Well played girls it was a tough match end score: 33-50, thankyou to Marion Hooke for coaching us.

Crosskeys 5 v Turnford 6

Just the mention of the name Turnford seems to give rise to concern in any opposition but, even though Turnford 6 are made up of very young players, Crosskeys started off in a very determined manner and put away 6 goals without reply. Turnford rallied a little and the first quarter score was 13-5 to Crosskeys.
With only 7 players, Crosskeys continued on into the second quarter with no positional changes and, despite some ‘interesting’ challenges from the Turnford younsgsters, pulled ahead a little more. Georgina Dobson unfortunately got herself into a bit of a tangle and ended up on the floor and hurt her shoulder. Julie Moore was champing at the bit to come on and play for George but sadly was not needed! Half-time score 24-13
In the third quarter Crosskeys started to really dominate and with some awesome defending from Jess and Meg and Kate and Georgina moving the ball so well up the the court into the ‘D’, Crosskeys almost doubled their score. And that was despite Romilly and Amber passing to each other instead of scoring!! Third quarter 41-22.
In the final period, Crosskeys were never troubled and started to enjoy themselves, ending up with a final score of 53-27.

Well played to Romilly Scutt, Amber Moore, Kate Peacock, Georgina Dobson, Estelle Williams (nice to see you back from Uni), Jessica Enemokwu and Megan Pointer.

Only a couple more games to go. Let’s see if we can go undefeated for the season!

Crosskeys 3 – 37 vs Bluebells – 39

1st quarter – we started with 5 players due to a part of the A120 being shut and some delays. Some players out of position but worked the ball nicely. At the end of the quarter it was 10-9 to us!
2nd quarter – we then had 7 players!! However, bluebells started to gel with a sub and fresh pairs of legs they started to lead. At the end of the quarter it was 18-24 to them.
3rd quarter – we started to gel and come back by working the ball into the D efficiently so by the end of the quarter it was 29-34 to them.
4th quarter – as a team we wanted to pull back bluebells lead and were determined to win! We managed to pull back their lead by 3, so by the end of the game it was 37-39 to bluebells.
It was an unfortunate game but everyone played extremely well!!

Great win to night, 57:45 to us in the sauna like conditions! We started slowly in the first quarter as we had another new combination on the court. A couple of changes saw us edge ahead by one at half time and steady attacking play with solid defending all down the court produced a 12 goal win.

Crosskeys 5 v Saffron Hawkes
Well this was a struggle from the word go. Lack of players due to Exams meant we only had 5 . So pull ups were made. Thank u to Freya Rowson and Lily Luffman for playing up. So we should now be sorted but due to work George is running late. OMG that means I need to go on against a very young and fast Team.  Now, due to postions it is decided I would need to enter court and play a whole qtr at WA. At least it was not bad enough for us to be behind at the end of the qtr. We keep the lead going throughout the whole game however I am not quite sure what went wrong in the last qtr as they came back at us hard and were successfully clawing back. Final whistle and the Score was 50-49 – girls you did have me worried. But I suppose a win is a win. Well played all. Team Jess Lizzi Lily Amber Lili George Freya & Julie Moore

Crosskeys 6 V Cheshunt 3
36-39

The weather played a big part in tonight game and a very low sun and windy conditions made it hard for the shooters and passing in to the circle at the start if the game. The first quarter we played well ending one point up 12-13. The second quarter was point for point, however cheshunt ended one point up leaving the score 22-23. The last to quarters we made some good interceptions however struggled to capitalise on them, and the attackers did some great feeding into Freya. We ended the game 36-39 it was a very close game throughout, well played everyone and thank you to Marion Hooke for coaching us.

Crosskeys 3 v Hornets 3

Not really sure what to say about the game to night….except it wasn’t June weather! It was so wet for the first quarter that neither side could get it out of the centre third without being blown for footwork! When we did manage to approach the shooting circle the ball became like a wet bullet and sailed through everyone’s hands, ended the first quarter 3/2 up.

Second quarter was much better, the rain had abated and we settled into a game of short safe passes. There were lots of loose balls which we seemed to rescue effortlessly and score from. We were comfortably in front by half time and continue to expand our lead as the game progressed finishing 32/13 to us.

Great win and a huge boost to the teams confidence, a big thank you to Karen Elizabeth Heskett for coaching, Vicki Brice for scoring and Sue Woodstock for supporting, Jessica Enemokwu for helping us out in defence and Charlie Barton for her centre court skills.

Team to night was Emma Kennett, Hannah Hogan, Michelle Seary, Katie Woodstock, Charlie Barton, Jess Enemokwu and Nichola Colombi, well played everyone, we kept our heads and played to the conditions, looking forward to our next game…but please some sunshine.

Good luck with exams.

TURNFORD SUMMER LEAGUE – 30th May 2017

Crosskeys 4  35 – Izzi 36

We started off a bit slow in the first quarter (10-5 to Izzi) and continued to let them dictate to us through the second quarter (18-12 to Izzi.)
With a few changes of position and some well timed interceptions we began to pull back in the third quarter (27-23 to Izzi.) In the final quarter our timing, passes, shooting and everything seemed to be coming together and we just lost out by one goal on the final whistle to Izzi.

Thank you to
Kate Pink for your fabulous long reach and fighting for all those rebounds(always with a smile too)
Jess Barclay for your never ending energy, hassling and interceptions (sorry you had to endure all the bad language from your player)
Tegan Lintonbon-baker for your true fighting spirit and communication on court bringing the team together( and to you and your parents for interrupting your holiday????)
Zoë Griffith for never giving up no matter how much your WD was on you. Hope you are not to bruised after your fall.
Charlie Barton for being happy about and giving all your energy to any position you were given and fighting for every loose ball,
Olivia Burn for working that circle with Lily Fakile you both had a tough job at times with their GK but you both stayed cool even when the shots or the umpires decision didn’t go your way.
Verity for all your energy around court and feeding well into the shooters.

A pleasure to watch as always. Both umpires commented on what a great game. Well done.

Thank you to all the supporters, parents etc

Crosskeys 5 42 – Cheshunt 4 13

Not a great deal to wax lyrical about this evening but good to get a convincing win (again).

The game started with the girls in good spirits, moving the ball around well and building up a comfortable lead with the score at the end of the first quarter 11-3 to Crosskeys.

The second quarter opened with Cheshunt playing better and putting a few goals on their scorecard but, as Crosskeys started to dominate, the tone of the match seemed to change with the Cheshunt team becoming more aggressive in their play. It was probably a combination of their frustration, their lower level of skill and lack of a cohesive strategy, but that doesn’t condone one of their players punching Alice in the ribs off the ball!
Score at half-time: 24 -10 to Keys.

Round 3 (sorry, I meant third quarter!) and, basically, the match was over as a competition. Our wonderful defence of Jess and Meg only allowed Cheshunt to score two goals in the whole quarter, while our attackers managed to score a few cracking goals to put Crosskeys ahead 36 -12.

A thankfully short fourth quarter resulted in a final score of 42 -13.

Well done gilrs for not retaliating and well played to Romilly, Alice, Katie, Lili, Liz, Meg and Jess and thanks to Karen for coaching and to Kirsty for being on stand-by!!

TURNFORD SUMMER LEAGUE – 23rd May 2017

Crosskeys 4 vs Tornado Thunder

It was a tight game tonight and we went down by 2 in the first quarter. A few changes in the defensive circle to help cope with their tall GA and we levelled the game after the second quarter. We were up by 1 going into he final quarter. Lizzie needed to leave and Charlie was put in as GD (she did really well and got a few tips and interceptions having not played there before). Unfortunately a few unforced errors made us go down and we lost the game by 2. Final score 42-44.

Well played everyone.

Team: Hannah Bishop, Olivia Burn , Alice Boulton , Megan Williams (thank you for staying), Lizzie Francis , Charlie Barton, Kate Pink and Tegan Lintonbon.

Thank you for all the supporters and Melanie Boulton for coaching.

TURNFORD SUMMER LEAGUE – 16th May 2017

Crosskeys 5 44 – Team Colours 2 19

With the luxury of having 8 players tonight and knowing that we had comfortably beaten Team Colours 1 a few weeks ago, Crosskeys started off the match well with 4 quick, unanswered goals. And that basically set the tone for the rest of the match. Crosskeys, at times played some very quick passing moves that culminated in some great shooting from our attackers.

Our defence was just as resolute against a team that played the entire game in a very good spirit. In fact, both teams played with smiles on their faces and credit to Team Colours for not giving up despite being on the receiving end of a comprehensive defeat.

Final score (after a very lacklustre third quarter from both teams!) was 44 – 19 to Crosskeys.

Well played Jess, Meg, Lizzie, Lili, Georgina, Amber, Romilly and Katie. And thanks to Julie and Sarah for coaching.

Crosskeys 4 v Oasis

We started the match well with Verity and Alice feeding the ball well into Hannah and Liv who did not miss a shot between them. Myself and Jess worked hard in defence and Zoe was available to bring the ball down the court and link with Verity and Alice. We managed to turn over a couple of centres and ended the first quarter 4 goals up. Charlie took over as WD in the 2nd quarter and we won by 4 goals, extending our lead to 8. A change of Zoe on as WA for the 3rd quarter. We pulled away in this quarter and led by 14 at the end. Couple of last changes with Zoe moved to C and Alice back as WA. We kept possession of the ball and finished with the win. Final score 48-32.

Well played girls!

Crosskeys 6 V elite
26-46

We had a hard game last night and fought hard throughout. Last night passing was our downfall losing a lot of balls, however our defence made some great interceptions to bring the ball back up. By the end of first quarter we were losing by 1, however with a change of positions for the second quarter our game play stepped up and we were making more interceptions, even though we started to play better as a team there was still silly mistakes being made. By the end of the match we ended 46-26 with an unlucky loss. Well played to everyone it was a tough match, thankyou to Marion Hooke for coaching us.

CD PHOENIX  TOURNAMENT – 14th May 2017

U16's at CD Pheonix Tournament- May 2017

This has always been my favourite tournament and have been competing here for many years.

This was an U16 section but due to GCSE exams some U16′s couldn’t play, thanks to U15 for stepping up to the plate.

Our first game was against Hurst NC and from the start we were unfocused and made silly errors. This goes to show how important the warming up process is,not only to warm up muscles but to gel as a team with simple ball skills. Our second game against ONRG was an improvement & we won by 2 goals.
Team Matrix was going to be a hard game as their previous scores showed they out played many of their opposition. We certainly gave them a good game and only lost by 2 goals. CDP Opals was one of our easiest game and we won by 15-3. Our last game against Royals A was another win for us at 9-4. We came third which was a little frustrating since we had scored more goals than Hurst who came second.
A good team effort but we must be better prepared for our first game.

Thank you to all our supporters and to Jaz Burt for umpiring and Kayla Burt for being our reserved shooter.
A lovely weekend spent with a great coaching team from Joanne WaceyJulie Moore and Sarah Parker.

Crosskeys 4 v Tornado Lightning

We started the first quarter well, the centre court (Verity and Alice) feeding the ball in to the shooters (Liv and Lily) who did not miss. With some great turnovers from defence (Hannah and Jess) we found ourselves 9-2 up at one stage. Some ‘unforced decisions’ helped them fight back but we remained ahead by 4. We made some changes in the second quarter with Hannah moving to GS, Jess to GK, me to GD and Zoe coming on as WD. The team combination worked well and we extended our lead to 10 goals at the end of the quarter. Keeping the defensive and shooting partnerships the same in the 3rd quarter, we continued to play well and finished 13 goals ahead. Going into the final quarter we made a final change with Liv and Hannah shooting together. Final score 44-32.

Team: Hannah, Olivia Burn , Alice Boulton, Jess Barclay ,Verity, Lily Fakile, Zoë Griffith and Tegan Lintonbon

TURNFORD SUMMER LEAGUE – 8th May 2017

Crosskeys 1 45 vs Crosskeys 2 32

Great game today between top 2 teams in the summer league. The seconds starting out on top with the first making some enforced errors and us capitalising on this taking 4 goal lead into the first quarter.

2nd quarter the first came out fighting working well defence forcing the 3 seconds a few times in our attacking end – think they went up by 5 going into the third.

The last half both teams played well with everyone working for each other – but the frosts just pulled away in the last quarter.

Well played everyone. Teams tonight

TURNFORD SUMMER LEAGUE – 18th April 2017

Cuffley 24 – Crosskeys 5 50

In contrast to the warmth of the Winter League, it was on with the big coats and hats for the start of the ‘Summer’ league!
It was lovely to see the girls together with some old partnerships being renewed, Meg and Jess in defence being one.

Anyway, the match started in chilly but still conditions and Crosskeys got off to a good start, rattling in a few goals before Cuffley could get settled. Score at the end of the first quarter was 15-5 to Crosskeys. The rest of the match went pretty much the same way, with Crosskeys, on occasion, playing some flowing netball. In fairness to Cuffley, who only had 6 players for the entire match, they played well in patches and in the third quarter put together a run of 5 goals with reply.

However, the game turned out as a fairly comfortable win for Crosskeys 50 -24, a useful opening game without too much pressure and a good opportuneity for the girls to get used to playing together. Well done to Romilly, Katie, Alice, Lili, Georgina, Kate, Lizzie, Meg and Jess.

Crosskeys 6 V Cheshunt 4
Score 46-13

Great start for our new team tonight against a very feisty Cheshunt side dominating our first quarter 11-2. The second quarter furthering our lead with some great shooting ending the quarter 27-7. In our third and fourth quarters we saw some amazing play all across the court with fantastic defence only letting Cheshunt score 6 in the second half of the game.
Well played everyone thanks to supporters braving the cold.

Squad: Lily Luffman, Nada Tadros, Megan Williams, Sophie Beaumont, Jordan Hinks, Esther, Amelia and Estel
