On Sunday, Hucclecote staged the 2nd Mixed Netball tournament at Bentham. This year 10 teams entered, an increase on last year.
The teams played in 2 sections to determine the 4 semi finalists. Competition was fierce, and with the men demonstrating great speed & agility, the standard of play was excellent.
Light Breeze (Simmonds & Banyard, last years winners) met Edwards & Arnie ( Ali Edwards + daughter+ Hubby & Arnie + random bloke!) in the first semi. Edwards & Arnie narrowly losing out by 2 goals, 5-7.
In the other semi, Silver Ferns ( Becky Hemming + school colleagues) had a slightly easier run beating Odd Balls ( Caroline Bedford & Michelle Dowles lot) Ferns winning 10-5.
The final between Silver Ferns & Light Breeze went goal for goal with Light Breeze taking a 1 goal lead with a minute to go. Equalising in the dying seconds, the game went to Golden Goal, with the next goal winning the match & tournament! With centre pass going with the Silver Ferns, they made no mistake taking it to goal, snatching victory.
A huge thank you to all the players, umpires & supporters for a great day & raising £400 for Cancer Research.
