ALNWICK & Boulmer Netball Club played their penultimate match of the season against Morpeth B last week.

Both teams started quickly with dynamic play from end to end. The Alnwick side dominated and won the first quarter 12-5.

It was much the same in the second quarter, with both sides making good interceptions but Alnwick had the edge and were up 23-12 at half-time.

Morpeth switched around their team and caught Alnwick & Boulmer off guard.

There was little to separate the sides in the third quarter and Morpeth came out slightly on top by winning it 7-6.

Alnwick & Boulmer found their form again and through excellent play down the court and strong partnerships between the GD & GK and the GA & GS, they took the final quarter 7-4.

Alnwick won the match overall by 36 goals to 23.
