Bridgwater Under 16s netballers claim narrow win over Galmington
9:00am Thursday 4th October 2012 in Sport
Bridgwater 53, Galmington 50
WITH both teams on level points at the end of the regional qualifying tournament, Bridgwater and Galmington played off for the position as Somerset 1.
The teams were 10-10 at quarter time but Galmington capitalised on their tall goal shoot in the second quarter as they inched ahead with a three-goal lead at half time.
But Bridgwater were resurgent in the third quarter to carry a five- goal lead into the final quarter and as nerves began to play their part, Galmington scored a decisive goal in the dying seconds to equalise the match.
A blistering start to extra time saw Bridgwater pull away to a half time score of 51-47 and, knowing they had to win by two clear goals at the end of extra time, the team kept their cool to win by a three-goal margin.
Team: Morganne Dunn, Imogen Setter (C), Amy Kemmish, Lucy Kyte, Alisha Gardener, Saskia Middleton, Mary King, Laura Gibson, Victoria Saban, Res: Lucy Brown, Aerin Phillips.
