Local netball round up

Saffron Hawks 63 LHF 1

Hawks 1 went on a big scoring spree, with Ella Sanders and Tori Green scoring at will, and with the mid court players especially Evie Burke who bravely played through the pain, made sure quick ball was always available. The Hawks ran out comfortable winners; Player of the match: Evie Burke

Saffron Hawks Ladies2 36 New Hall Academy 22

Two teams fighting a the top of the league both had a lot to play for and with Ladies 2 desperate to avenge their early season defeat, they started on fire and opened up with Liv Alltree and Ruby Haralambous dominating the circle and giving the hawks a 5 point lead. The teams continued evenly matched until the final quarter when the Hawks with Lauren Woosey, Rebecca Rees and Maisie King all pilled on the pressure and pulled away to move up the league with a well earned win!

Hawks A continued to their march on with a comfortable win against mid-table Brookshaw, which keeps them firmly in first place. Katie Bear, Emily Peggs and Chloe Starr managed to create so many turnover balls that the shooters had plenty of ball to make sure the Hawks lead from start to finish. This now means the Hawks 3 are still unbeaten in the league. With a harder games still to come the hawks go into the final part of the season in a strong position.

Hawks went into this game as underdogs, withBrookshaw above them in the league, they needed to continue their strong current form to win. Right from the start the teams played a tight and close game, Natasha Masich was dominate at GD winning ball after ball and leading the team from defence into attack. Aimee Savill bringing her best game this meant her and Natalie Pedersen produced very quick ball through the mid-court. Maisie King and Lauren Woosey both took every opportunity to score, this meant that in the final quarter the Hawks managed to pull away and create a lead they were never going to give up! This now means the Hawks have moved up the table. What an achievement to have both HawksU14s A & B in the top 3 of division 1!!!!

Player of the match Lauren Woosey

Hawks U10s 10 Flames Chinook 2

Hawks under 10s prodced some fine shooting for such a young age, and with Bella Howarth, Alice Mcdowell and Rosie-May Courtney moving the ball superbly through mid court with some good awareness of each other, the Hawks always looked in charge.
