Sergeant’s impact proves pivotal

Portsmouth Pivotals

Carly Sergeant was in fine form as Portsmouth Pivotals beat Fareham Flyers 19-11 in All About Netball League division four.

Pivotals, who emerged from a Back to Netball session and have grown into a club with qualified coaches and budding umpires, started slowly.

But after trailing 3-2 at the end of the first quarter, they were level by half-time and eased clear in the second half.

Sergeant’s skiful movement and accurate shooting was key.

Amy Woods was players’ player for Flyers.

Queens Head Royals beat Delme Diamonds 17-15.

In a very even game, wing-attacks Jay Yeomans, of Royals, and Donna Parsons, from Diamonds, were strong.
