Teamforce opened their doors when Purbrook Netball Club sadly closed and head coach Kelly Brown is pleased with the transitions and growth of the club.

Teamforce four gave Jellies a good contest and held them to a 16-16 draw.

Jellies under-13s had a stronger game against Fireflys White and won 24-11, not even allowing the previously unbeaten Fireflys a halfway point.

Fireflys Teal edged an exciting contest with Gosport Gators Emerald 23-18.

Gators were pulling back in the last quarter, with Anna Jones really taking on her role on court.

But time ran out leaving Teal to take the win.

Teamforce seconds beat Sarisbury Allstars 20-4.

It was really a tough game for Allstars but they didn't give up.

Teamforce managers praised the opposition and their play.

They also noted how tirelessly Alexia Seamer worked for Allstars.

Gosport Gators Jade continued their unbeaten record in the under-12s, beating Fireflys Jade 24-2. 

The tiny Devils team had a couple of new players join them against Fireflys Yellow.

Sophie Pitcher was one of them.

And following her older sister Charlotte, who plays for the Devils Hampshire under-16s team, she has naturally taken to defence.

Fireflys took the win 34-1 but the cheer for 8-year-old Brooklyn's second goal of the season was one of the loudest of the night.

Sarisbury Galaxies lost 16-4 to Teamforce firsts in the final under-12 game of the night.

In the under-16s Devils Red beat Devils Black 32-16 in a very fast-paced game.

Olivia Anderson, playing goal-attack was on fire, and her goal stats were highest of the night.

New player Elisha Parham is making her mark in defence and played an awesome game.

Gators had enjoyed a 39-17 success against Fireflys Lime.

Fireflys Orange beat Fireflys Blue 29-8.
