First game of season ends in stalemate

Alnwick & Boulmer Netball Club played their first match of the new season against Bedlington A last Wednesday night, their first in the B league after winning promotion last season.

Alnwick won the first quarter 10 goals to 6.

Bedlington then won the second quarter 6-5. Bedlington came out strong again in the third quarter and despite some strong defence from the Alnwick team, won the third quarter 8-5.

With all to play for in the final quarter, both sides impressed with excellent defence, confident shooting and strong attacking play through the mid court. There was little to separate the sides and the game resulted in a draw, 24-24. Player of the match: H MacKenley. Team: Anne Marie Imeson, Paula Archer (c), Kate Imeson, Holly MacKenley, Ruth Oldfield, Heather Eggleston, Karen Robinson, Rachel Convery, Holly Eggleston, Katie English.

Alnwick & Boulmer train every Wednesday at Willowburn Leisure Centre from 7pm-8pm. All players are welcome to go along and join them.
