A cold but fine start for Saturday's game set the scene for another fighting effort from the Amesbury Ferns. Some great team work on defence created lots of turnover ball but the Johnsonville Royals had improved markedly on their defence too and made it hard to get our ball through the mid court and into the goal circle. 3-0 down at half time, the Amesbury Ferns were faced with a new challenge. And rise to the challenge they did with a determined come back in the second half. However, the Royals took this one in the end resulting in the Ferns experiencing their first defeat of the season. It was a solid effort with the final score 5-3.
Congratulations to Kimberley for the Magic Moment award, received for her good defensive work at goal keep. Well done also to Emily for her excellent movement on the court, moving into spaces to help her team mates out.
