Local netball round up

Saffron Hawks 1s 11 Braintree 1

Hawks are just two wins from the title after Braintree decided to withdraw from the game after 10 minutes.

The new partnership of Maisie King and Ella Sanders contributed to the strong start as Hawks maintained their unbeaten winning streak, which now stands at 17 wins.

Hawks played a strong game through all quarters, with Olivia Godfrey producing her best performance of the season to make sure the ball moved well down the court. With a strong defensive performance from Julia Belteki and Charlotte Gramlick the Hawks gave very little away, and with Tori Green and Olivia Alltree supplying the finishing touches the team came out comfortable winners.

Hawks are one win from the title after beating Conquerors in a rehersal of the cup final.

After a tied first quarter they moved up a gear and showed their class, with outstanding mid court play from Katie Bear, Emily Peggs and Chloe Starr. The shooters Liv Alltree and Ruby Haralambous both showed why they have scored over 400 goals.

Alice Ede and Leah Hoskins moved the ball quickly down the court and Paige Peacock and Carla Jansen helped to keep Conquerors at bay. The Hawks constant pressure paid off in the final quarter with Scarlett Howard showed great team play which lead to a late flurry of goals.
