Iceni produced a good, all-round performance in their first game of the East Midlands Netball Regional League Division 2 season. Both great shooting and strong defence were on display but it was not enough to beat the newly-qualified Regional League team, Southgate, who won the game by 50 goals to 23.
Despite Iceni doing well in the first quarter, Southgate picked up the pace in the second and third quarters, demonstrating that they are on track to have a very good season. Iceni did manage to claw back the score line a little bit in the last quarter but in the end it was not enough.
laina Richardson, who had a strong game in centre court, was nominated as Iceni’s ‘Player of the Match’.
