Each game was well contested and provided good warm up games prior to the Uptons. In division 3, the young squad of Accies D went out strong and determined against the Rest team. Accies produced some fantastic interceptions in the Rest's shooting circle and extended their lead each quarter resulting in a 23-12. This is a great confidence boost before they meet the Guernsey 3rd Division Winners on Sunday.
Convent D were the champs of Division 2. As the Rest team had never played together before this match, the first quarter was always going to be a time for 'quick learning' and 'adjusting' to the new 'unknown' team players. With this in mind, it was a brilliant start to this 2nd Division game to be able to hold the young and gifted Convent D team to an eight goal draw after the first quarter.
A complete reshuffle of the Rest, changing 5 positions, still enabled this team to hold their own against the Champions who had been unbeaten throughout the whole season.
This match produced a fine display of fast, flowing Netball, with both sides eager to capitalise on any lose balls and rebounds.
The experience of the Rest team players was to be the deciding factor in this evenly matched contest and The Rest team won by a narrow margin of 27-23.
Good luck to all Jersey teams in the Uptons on Sunday.
