Netball rally proves to be a success
10:49am Friday 20th September 2013 in Sport
FIFTEEN teams battled it out in the Jackie Sage/Hazel King memorial netball rally.
The day started with the sun shining and the teams divided into four pools from all four divisions of the Colchester League at Highwoods Sports Centre.
The morning rounds consisted of three matches, of five minutes each way, which would decide the teams that would play for the Jackie Sage Cup or the Hazel King plate in the afternoon matches.
The two top teams of each pool would play for the cup and the bottom two for the plate.
Zodiac Tigers, Mavericks, Kats Lightning, Tiptree Panthers, Zodiac Lions, Kats Storm, Kats Sea Breeze and Kats Blizzard battled it out for the cup.
With the wind picking up and the rain lashing down Kats Lightning came out victorious, closely followed by Zodiac Tigers.
Meanwhile Zodiac Lynx, Zodiac Panthers, Kats Tornados, GHI Sapphires, Nimbus, Coggeshall and GHI Pumas gave it their all to compete for the plate in harshening weather conditions.
GHI Pumas triumphed with Nimbus not far behind. Becky Dorey organised the rally and Jill Rumney helped run the day.
The Colchester Netball Winter League started on Monday at Leisure World. For more on the clubgo to the club’s website: www.colchesternetball.org.uk
