|Brentwood School||V||Withington Girls||24-25|
A fantastic spectacle from the first whistle to the last, these two teams were so evenly matched that the final result was never clear until the very last seconds of the game. WITHINGTON came out of the blocks flying and by the end of the first quarter had taken a 8-4 lead. Some incredibly accurate shooting from GS, Heather Jenkins, sinking 8 goals from 10 attempts, put WITHINGTON in a strong position. The second quarter saw a comeback from BRENTWOOD, with their GS, Annie Shaw, having 100% shooting accuracy, and bringing the scores back to 12-9 by half time. The third quarter was a tense affair – both teams playing some great netball and yet again Brentwood narrowed the scores to just one goal, taking the quarter by 8 goals to 6. The final quarter did not disappoint! The lead changed on numerous occasions. However, WITHINGTON held their nerve and at the final whistle the score line was 25-24 in their favour, with the cool-headed Player of the Match, Hannah Jenkins converting the winning goal with just seconds on the clock. Congratulations to both teams for their sportsmanship and excellent standard of play.
