In very crisp, cold conditions the Parkroyal netball team faced top of the league Marlborough in what turned out to be an exciting nail biter of a match.
The first quarter belonged to Parkroyal with an excellent start to the match after Lucy scored two quick goals. The second and third quarters were a turn around for Marlborough with some very fast play down the court and brilliant shooting from their GA. The final quarter saw Parkroyal come to within two goals but there just weren't enough minutes left on the clock to pull ahead. Final score for the A team was 9-11; an outstanding performance by all and according to the Marlborough coach, their most competitive match of the season so far!
The B team took to the court next against a mixture of Marlborough A and B players. They worked fantastically as a team, trying to put into practice the skills learnt during training. For many of the team it was their first time out on court in a competitive match and they all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Congratulations to Noah and David who won player of the match for their teams respectively.
