Score: 44 – 59
Players of the Match: Sarah Sabin and Brogan Jones
Pinehurst started the game slowly and were trailing 17 – 6 after the first quarter. Crossbow defence was physical throughout the court and proved a challenge for Pinehurst in the first 30 minutes.

Unfortunately, this came a little too late. Crossbow managed to use the momentum they gained from the start to carry them through to win the game 59 – 44. Whilst a disappointing loss for Pinehurst, there were some great spells of netball played which Pinehurst will be looking to take into next week’s game against Team Bath. Sarah Sabin (GD/GA) was named Player of match by her teammates and Brogan Jones (C) was selected as Player of the match for Pinehurst by Crossbows.
