A game of back and forth full of interceptions, with Jaguars GK Sarah Sefton not making it easy for our newbies, but with double marking Trin's GS – this left their GA Albany Chatterton open to take her shots! The fatigue was starting to set in as both teams made some errors with both sides of the defence picking them up, particularly Lucy Martin in GK for Trin picking up some great interceptions with both hands. Aimee Wilson didn’t lose her energy as Centre for Trin, using both her attacking and defensive skills to win possession of the ball for her team. Quarter 4: Score: 35 - 22 Jaguars defence team made a great choice to stay close to Trin’s GS Gemma McHugh, but even with their double marking it didn’t stop her spectacular long shots. Aimee from Trin moved to GK with Lisa Holt taking the C bib, with her strong marking it led Jaguars GS Deborah Shaw to take a new approach on coming out of the shooting circle to support her attack. This was a great move, as it left GA Natalie Ricketts from Jags open to land more goals. Both teams battled to the final few seconds as the match came to an end. Congratulations to Jaguars on their win, and well done to Trin for their huge efforts in their first GDSNL match. Umpire’s Player of the Match: Grace Tooke & Poppy Hill.

Lydia White encouraged Bridge McFarland Jets to continue battling through and the anticipation of the whistle which was looming – edging into a 27 Vs 29 lead to Jets at the end of the third quarter. It was anyone’s game in the last quarter both teams came out pumped and wanting to secure victory. It was great to see such young players using the skills and talent across both teams to the max and are an asset to have in the league, there was great interceptions by Olivia Crow Jets WD and great movement from Amy Tiplady Whites C. An impressive performance by both teams and every player in the last quarter. Marisco Whites was searching for the space to pass from the very tight defending up and down the court by Bridge McFarland Jets, but they held the possession. Both teams had supporters positively encouraging their teams for the full hour game which made the court lively. It continued to be nip and tuck and either side trying to inch clear until the last few minutes when Marisco broke away and edged into the lead, taking the victory 42 vs 35. This really was a gripping match, with other courts keeping their eyes on the match, a very competitive but friendly game which showed good sportsmanship. Well done to Kate Clark and Edan Felton for confident umpiring.
