Saffron Hawks under-11s had to settle for the runners-up spot at the prestigious Tegate tournament.

The best teams from the East of England battled it out, including under-16 national champions Turnford and under-14 national semi-finalists Hatfield, and the competition was intense.

But the Saffron Hawks impressed in their first tournament together, beating eventual semi-finalists Brookshaw 5-3 in a nervous opener and Hatfield, who they had recently beaten 29-26 in the league, 6-2 on the way to finishing their group unbeaten with six wins.

Their 8-7 semi-final win over Wodson was the best game of the tournament, with eight minutes of high quality netball and Hawks battling back from three goals down in the closing seconds to force extra time.

Hawks kept their nerve to claim the decisive golden goal and book a final date with Turnford soon after, but tiredness set in and they ended up second best.
