Nagambie unable to hold on against charging Stanhope in A-grade netball.CHALPAT SONTI May 1, 2014 3:46am
So near yet so far — that tells the tale for Nagambie’s A-grade netball side after it came agonisingly close to pulling off an upset at Stanhope on Saturday.
The injury-hit Lakers matched it goal-for-goal in blustery conditions with one of the competition favourites, the first quarter featuring more turnovers from both sides than goals.
Then Nagambie pinched a late four-goal break to end the third quarter 35-31 ahead.
But Stanhope showed its class in fighting back in the final term to sneak a 48-44 victory.
That was despite some valiant efforts by Nagambie players.
