St Edward’s students were in jubilant mood after winning the Langdon Academy Year 5/6 Netball Competition last week.

The overall winners were one of eight schools to take part in the event, along with Aldersbrook, St Helen’s, St Joachim’s, Sandringham, Nelson, Cleveland and St Francis’.

The eight teams were split into two groups of four, with the positions in the groups determining the order of the quarter-finals.

After topping Group One, St Helen’s beat Nelson 3-0 in the quarter-finals, while Group Two winners St Edward’s defeated Aldersbrook 4-0.

The other quarter-finals saw St Francis’ down St Joachim’s 2-0, while Sandringham won a shoot-out against Cleveland after their match ended in a goalless draw.

In the semi-finals, St Edward’s cruised to a 6-0 success over Sandringham, while St Francis’ won 4-2 against St Helen’s.

There was some joy for St Helen’s as they won the third-place play-off with a 1-0 win over Sandringham.

In the final, St Edward’s edged a tight game, beating their St Francis’ rivals 1-0.
