Great teamwork gave City of Ely juniors under-16s an important 28-16 league win against Royston.

New centre court combination Nadia Searle and Maisy Swan-Taylor immediately clicked to drive the ball to shooters Laura Butcher, who was player of the match, and Rosie McGrath.

City led by seven by half time before Royston rallied in the third quarter.

But City’s defence also raised their game, Tara Gilbey making important fingertip interceptions to interrupt Royston’s attacking flow, Lucy Wilkinson using her speed and agility to pressurise her opponent and Katie Tune unflappable at goal keeper, preventing her player from moving freely.

City prevented their opponents scoring in the last quarter.
