Sergeant's impact proves pivotal
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.
