Netball Ely Netball Club I 54 City of Ely III 40
There were goals aplenty when local rivals Ely Netball Club and City of Ely faced each other in Division 3 of the Cambridge and District Netball League.
City started the better as Ely struggled to settle but Ely began to find their form at the end of the first quarter, finishing up with a two-goal lead.
Ely’s shooting partnership, Janice Quarrier and Anita Reidy, were in fine form in the second quarter and pulled Ely in to a 10-goal lead by half-time.
Ely continued to dominate after the break, edging further ahead each quarter with excellent defending in the opposition’s circle by Alison Crombie and Victoria Cutforth.
Mid court players Celeste Gordon, Sue Tune and Debbie Knott ensured the ball flowed down the court for Quarrier and Reidy to net at every opportunity giving them their highest goal scoring tally of the season with 54 goals.
Janice Quarrier was voted player of the match for her excellent shooting.
