DC Cobras U12 Netball
On 4 March, the DC Cobras U12 Netball team had a tournament in Aberdeen against the Wildcats. There was a thunderstorm before the game which made it harder to play because of how slippery the court was. The last time we played the Wildcats we won 16-5 which was a great score but we knew it didn’t mean we were going to win this time. The scores were very close throughout the game but we managed to win by 1 point and the final score was 13-12. Special thanks to Jule, Jessie, Jasmine, Nikola, Nicole, Sienna, Isla, Minnie, Yvette, Maia, Caitlin and Coaches Britt and Julie (Hannah Dolan)

The spectators were on the edge of their seats as the time ticked down during that last quarter, but the team remained calm and with some great passing and important goals converted, we won.

DC Cobras U20 Girls Football B
The U20 Girls played Australian International School at Tsing Yi Northeast Park on Tuesday 6 March and despite only having nine players, they worked extremely hard to make up for the shortage on numbers. Holding Australian International School scoreless at half time, the DC girls ran rampant and put 5 goals into the AIS net. It was a pleasing display from the girls and their hard work was deservedly rewarded with the massive victory.

Lilian started with some effective saves in goal in the first half and then played a great support role in mid-field.
