06.02.19 – What a different game. From missing every shot, to only missing one. How?! This is why the world of netball is not only a mysterious one but is one where you can pick yourself up and go again to change the outcome. It was a school match. We supported each other and carried each other to victory. Amazing play all round.
09.02.19 – Talk about one extreme to the other; my stats were great and every shot that went in lifted me up and gave me the feeling of when I was a small child being raised onto my Dad’s shoulders. (Yes, I actually was once small enough to do this!)
10.02.19 – So back with my regional squad. Shout-out to all you great girls. It was a tough game and sadly one that we did lose. BUT, we got points and my shooting was much better than last week. Claps all round. Even though we lost, I did not let my head drop and that is the difference. As cliché as this sounds, it really is a mind game. Self-belief and a strong sense of team play is absolutely vital. It is the way you learn by your mistakes that carries you forwards. Defeat will only break you if you refuse to rise again. Remember, it’s not all about the scorecard.
