City of Ely lift the Katie Colson Cup after inaugural tribute netball tournament

CITY of Ely were crowned the inaugural winners of the Katie Colson Cup, beating MI7 18-14.

City made a positive start and were keen to mark their first season with a trophy.

MI7 did not make progress easy however, and superb shooting kept the two teams closely matched.

In the end, Ely triumphed, coming through narrow 18-14 winners.
