THE NETBALL GAME
“Laura, Laura!” Kate shouted “Ok, ok I can hear you” responded Laura. As the girls started to wake up their mum Cathy was downstairs cooking breakfast. Their mum was a very good cook and she was hoping to become a chef, but that all changed when she got married. When the girls finally woke up completely, they ran down the stairs as fast as they could because they could smell something cooking in the kitchen. After a yummy breakfast of bacon and eggs Kate slowly walked up the stairs to her room while Laura zoomed past her running. Both girls were supper excited because it was their first netball game for Torquay Tigers.
On the way to the netball courts, Cathy also had to pick up Ella and she was Kate and Laura’s best friend! The girls started screaming after they picked up Ella because they were almost there, they were almost ready to play their first netball game. “OMG” Ella said slowly, they all had just walked onto the courts and there were a lot of people.
After a quick warm up the girls went over to their coach Sarah and she gave them their positions for the game. When it was time to start Cathy stood against the fence to watch. It was a fantastic first quarter, Ella played wing defence (WD) and got some intercepts, Laura played center (C) and she helped Kate who was goal attack (GA) get some goals for their team.
When it was three quarter time the girls were a little bit tired, but still had lots of energy left. In the last quarter Kate played goal defence (GD), Laura played wing attack (WA) and Ella played goal shooter (GS). In the last two minutes of the game Ella scored two goals and that made them win.
The girls celebrated, but when they went down to the creek someone crept up behind them and tied them to a tree. Not long after the girls were face to face with a netball and they were staring at it weirdly. Then the ball started to talk, the girls started to scream, but the ball disappeared and the boy was standing there. “Please, please can you let us go” sobbed Laura, the boy was almost convinced when Ella started to cry. The boy didn’t know what to do, and then he finally made up his mind and let the girls go.
Kate, Ella and Laura sprinted back to Cathy. She was almost leaving and the girls didn’t want to walk home in their netball dresses because it turned out to be a cooled day. The girls finally made it to their mum in time and when Ella reached Cathy, she spotted her mum Helena and ran off. Meanwhile back down at the creek the young boy was standing be side the tree worrying about how he let the girls go. Then after about two minutes a ball was rolling towards him then he realized that it was his boss, so he started sprinting and soon he had disappeared into the crowd of people. The ball was rolling around wondering where the girls were. Then he saw the ropes around the tree and figured that they had escaped.
The ball was wondering around looking for them, trying not to get seen by people. Then when he was surrounded by some other netballs someone picked him up and took all of the air out of him. So now he was flat. Back down at Kate and Laura’s house they were talking about how they were kidnapped by a ball and then Laura said “I promise that I will never go down to that creek again” “Me to” replied Kate “Me to”
