Samara & Patyn’s Saturday Netball

Last weekend I went out to see my Family and Jan told my Samara and Patyn were having their last game of netball for the season.  Being the bad Aunty for the last season not getting out to watch their games, it was only right I watch their last game.  I was there for the first game of Patyns introduction into the world of sport and seems right I see her last game for the season.

Turning right off State Highway 3 into Te Awamutu I drove past the Memorial Gardens  and prayed to the Parking Angels to have a park for me close to the courts.  My ankle was and still is bothersome and really didn’t want far to walk.

The Angles answered my prayers and a park was waiting for me right beside the coffee van just incase I had an urge for coffee but with one Americano already in hand I went off to find my Nieces.

I found a good place between the two courts where Patyn and Samara were playing fortunately and I just had to turn around each time to cheer support for Samara shooting for goals

and Patyn playing Wing Attack being fast on her feet grabbing that ball. The improvement of Patyn’s game of netball was just fabulous.

Patyn’s first game was such a hoot, with all the girls following the ball like the Pied Piper but on this day, they were playing like seasoned players and such a delight to watch. If there is fun to be had, you can bet Patyn is amongst it be it warming up or waiting for the whistle to go.

The whistle blew and I found a place where I could watch Samara shoot for goals and Patyn being Wing Attack in her game.  Samara went on to shoot many goals with her game being a draw and Patyns team won their game – a brilliant result achieved by all!
