This was a top of the table match between Omega and 2nd placed Norfolk. As you would think the first quarter was fast and furious with both teams trying to settle into their rhythm of play. Both defences were strong from the start making some great interceptions with the score finishing 12 -11 to Norfolk.
Second quarter Omega came out fighting trying to make up the one goal deficit. Good centre court support helped our shooters settle and score some excellent goals. Norfolk matched us in effort but with strong and aggressive defence Omega managed to finish the first half winning 26-21.
With some fresh legs after making a few team changes Norfolk closed the gap with some excellent shooting and possession around the court but Omega stayed focused and held the lead to 34-31.
After an encouraging team talk from the coach and captain Omega was determined to win this game. Our defence played amazing and after many interceptions Omega worked it well down the court feeding into the circle and finished with some impressive shooting. No doubt, Norfolk played their part with their strong defence and great shooting! However Omega’s confidence grew in the final quarter and they ran out winners 45-35.
A great game of netball played in a good competitive spirit by both teams!
