However, due to some superb athleticism and link-up play by Nottingham Knights’ Centre (C), Danni Gatt, alongside some faultless shooting in their attacking end, Nottingham Knights romped away with the second and third quarters to lead 27-45 going into the final quarter.
Grasshoppers rallied for the last fifteen minutes and won the quarter, 15-14. However, it was too little too late and Nottingham Knights ran out final winners 42-59.
It was a great, well-contested and well-umpired game.
The Grasshopper “Player of the Match” went to Beth Smith at Goal Shooter (GS). For more information about Leicestershire’s Grasshoppers, please check out their website: www.grasshoppernetballclub.co.uk
