Week 2: LB Harriers 36 – 48 Red Stripes
After ending last season with what seemed like half the team out of action, Harriers were in a bit of shock to find themselves with 9 players warming up for their first game. This enthusiasm for a new, lively squad definitely showed in the first quarter with Harriers throwing themselves into the line of all Red Stripes passes and turning over dropped balls. Harriers ended the first quarter in the lead. The second quarter was extremely close again but saw Red Stripes switch some players which threw Harriers off slightly and they were down at half time.
From then on, Stripes increased their lead and their experience showed against Harriers new line-up. Despite some excellent shooting in this high-scoring game, combined with incredible speed and agility from our mid-court players and great turnovers from Alex in her first real netball match – Stripes were too far ahead for Harriers to pull back. The final score was Red Stripes 48 – 36 Harriers.
