NJ NETBALL 8
THE match started off a little scrappy, with both teams trying to find their rhythm.
Tight marking made scoring difficult for both teams, but Basepoint managed to just pull ahead in the first quarter.
Basepoint began the second phase of the game with persistent attacking, keeping the ball in their goal third throughout the period.
Despite NJ’s best efforts, Basepoint completely dominated play, preventing NJ from adding to their score line.
NJ Netball remained determined but struggled to match their opponent’s pace.
NJ’s defensive duo, Natalie Gate (GK) and Sarah Hopkins (GD), worked incredibly hard to keep the ball out of Basepoint’s shooting circle but Basepoint’s C Zoe Fowler and WA Mary Wells-West manoeuvred the ball superbly around the circle, giving their shooters great position to score.
The final period saw NJ make some tactical changes, altering the dynamic of the game and giving them back some control but Basepoint continued their excellent play to walk away with a comfortable win.
We wish the Basepoint team all the success for their remaining league games and the possibility of promotion.
