The children had a really amazing experience and cannot wait to try Cheerleading again.

The A team continued to play some very skilful netball in this round so onto the semi final! Once again it was a real team effort to make into the final!

The final was a close game with Kingsdown taking a 1 nil advantage until the final seconds of the match, River scored with the last shot in the last second of the game - penalty shoot out! At this point River’s luck run out and Kingsdown went on to win 1-0 on penalties. Well played to you all,
