Dominoes broke the first Falcons centre pass of the game and raced into a 6-1 lead. Only then did Falcons start to settle. Key interceptions from Kathryn (GD) and Jemma (WD) were made whilst nice patches of through-court play were seen up court, culminating in excellent feeds to Christie and Gaby. Unfortunately for the Leicestershire team, Dominoes regrouped and took the first quarter 15-6.
Falcons Black hosted north-east side Grangetown in this week’s England Netball Premier League Division 2 game. It was expected to be a physical battle and Grangetown had got a few decent results under their belt so the home team knew they'd have to give everything to get their first win of the season.
A slightly depleted squad saw some of Falcons Black’s youngsters make the starting line-up and they showed some glimpses of their potential throughout the game. Their efforts were complemented by some outstanding defensive work from Issy Beighton and Nic Caunt, who applied pressure on the away team from the first whistle right up until the last.
