The Mitcham Cluster Hi 5 Netball Competition took place on Wednesday 10th October at Harris Academy Merton. Four schools from the cluster attended the competition: Bond, Links, The Sherwood and St Thomas of Canterbury.
As there were only four teams competing, a round robin format was used, meaning all teams played each other once. This got all teams very excited as they knew they had three matches to gain as many points as possible – 3 for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss.
The games kicked off with Links v Sherwood and St Thomas of Canterbury v Bond. All four teams took a while to find their feet and remember all the different rules played in netball, however, once they got going it was clear to see they were all on an equal playing field. The game between St Thomas and Bond ended with a 1-0 to St Thomas, and Sherwood also secured their first win of the tournament, with a 2-0 win over Links.
The second round saw Links v St Thomas of Canterbury and Bond v Sherwood; again both very closely with Links drawing with St Thomas and Sherwood securing there second win with a 4-0 over Bond!
In round three, Bond took on Links and Sherwood played St Thomas. Bond secured their first win of the tournament with a 2-0 win over Links. Sherwood showed great teamwork again to secure a third win of the tournament ensuring they went all afternoon unbeaten with a 2-0 over St Thomas.
Once the last game had finished teams gathered to find out the final results. With a lot of games ending in draws, the scores were very tight leaving two teams equal on points and goal difference for 2nd and with only a point in it for those finishing in 3rd and 4th. The final results were as follows:
1st The Sherwood
2nd St Thomas
