Despite falling behind in the first quarter, a valiant display from City saw them level up at 12-12 by half-time.

City came out all guns blazing in the third quarter, with movement in mid-court opening up spaces to ease the transition into the attacking circle.

City started to pass the ball around more positively, working the space to locate shooters Tovey and Mitchell and allowing them to pull ahead for the first time.

City held a four-goal advantage heading into the final quarter. Bristow and Ayers led the defensive line superbly and helped City see out the match.

Jenny Tovery was awarded player of the match.
