Second netball team battered West London

The Westminster Dragons second netball team humiliated, the so called ‘West London Army’ with the final score being 46-9.

From the first quarter to the final whistle it was clear that the game was one-sided. Kate Ebdon captain of the Westminster side and a goal shooter; and fellow teammate Katie Ward, a goal attacker racked up the majority of the goals for the side.

The dominance of the side was shown early on when Westminster was up 14-1 in the first quarter, managing to score four goals in the space of two minutes. It was only until the 14th minute of the first quarter where West London scored.
The Women’s netball team managed to score nine additional goals in the second quarter, 14 goals in the third quarter and to wrap up the game in the final quarter they added seven more goals to top off an excellent game.

Freya Thompson, the current president of the Student Union, played in goal defence and protected the Dragons hoop like it was a pot of gold, considering throughout all four quarters the side only managed to concede a total of nine goals.
Throughout all four quarters, West London gave the ball away far too easily centre court, allowing the Dragons to capitalise on simple mistakes.

Half way through the match, it was clear that West London were beginning to lose hope in turning the game around. The players began to fatigue as the Westminster Dragons began to play at a faster pace.
At one point in the match, the huge number of support shown to the West London team, did begin to give some life to the team and there was a short succession of goals in the final quarter. However, this failed to have any impact on the final score as it was in the last five minutes of the final quarter.
