It was the first really cold night of the season for the netballers in action in division four of the Gosport & Fareham League in week 12.

Fareham Vixens lost by one goal to the ever improving Misfits 18-17.

Anna Wilton was on fire for Vixens and they had started to come back in the third quarter but just not quick enough.

Wildcats had a great game against Pumas, winning 29- 20.

Goal-shooter Donna Fall, for Wildcats, had a blinding game.

She was holding her space to receive the ball perfectly.

Megan Muff, in centre for Pumas, also had a strong game.

She read the game, giving more opportunities for her team.

It just wasn’t going to be their night, even with the big push in the last quarter.

US Harriers had a struggle on their hands, just beating Blues 28-24.

Liz Arrowsmith, playing centre for US was players’ player as was Natalie Rogers, also centre was for Blues.

GB Stars sealed their promotion to division three next season, beating T & A Trojans.

Natasha Clark, played her socks off in goal-attack as her team won 22-9.

But Nicole Dugan tried her hardest in defence for Trojans to put a stop to that.

In division three, Devils had a walkover from GB TML.

Captain Debbie Woods says that next season brings new players so they can kick on again.

Avengers had a fantastic game against Blackjacks with the final score 44-23.

The shooting partnership with Stacey Grant, goal-attack, and Stacey Dewan, goal-shooter, was on fire.

They knew exactly what the other was going to do.

They created space in the circle and won most rebounds if the ball didn’t convert to a goal.

Nyssa Jarman, centre for Blackjacks, read the game well and turned some great interceptions.

But unfortunately for her team it wasn’t enough to beat Avengers on the night.

Gosport Gators Black played the late game against Fareham Zodiacs when the rain really came down.

It was a close game at the time and looked set to be a real thriller.

But it was called to an end in the third quarter with the score on 18-14.

The more experienced team just pushed through at the end to get the victory.

However, neither team looked disappointed to leave the courts due to the bad weather.

It was a similar situation on court three with division leaders Martinis and Hotshots.

Martinis led throughout but Emily Forbes Hotshots kept pace with them, ending with a 17-13 score.

This game also saw Martinis secure their position at the top.
