Staff v 1st VII Netball match

The final match of the season was the prestigious Staff v Owls game.

The staff came out victorious with a 16 -9 win with many of the goals scored by Wayne Adams, utilising his height effectively to receive the ball, though not necessarily controlling his footwork or being consistent in the actually shooting element. Good job the staff also had Allison Barnes shooting! Chris Barker made a fleeting appearance in defense in the first quarter but Tara Reid and Ellie Harvey did solid work throughout the game to keep the score down. Centre court was lively with Sue Barker, Sarah Lusby, Meg Oldcorn and Mel D'eath linking well to bring the ball from defense to attack. Owls played well throughout, utilising youth and speed, particularly in the centre court with Pippa Burdass, Katie Hodgson and Sophie I'Anson passing the ball and moving at pace, but struggled against the Adams brick wall when it got to the edge of the circle. Shreya Samarendra and Georgia Holdsworth gave as much as they got though so well done to them! Shooters Lily Anderson, Meg Outhart and Hayley Ng were accurate when they got it into the circle but in the end it was not enough to defeat the mighty staff who deserved their win!!
