29 June 2009 - Mixed Netball Tournament
Charity gains from mixed netball! Photos soon in the Gallery!

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.
