The second netball match of the day saw the two inter-college netball league winners do battle; Fylde for Lancaster, James for York.
The early stages of the game followed a similar disjointed pattern to the college select match from earlier in the day. It was yet again a low-scoring first quarter, with York edging it 5-3 courtesy of superior finishing and ultimately making less mistakes than their Lancaster opponents. Lancaster trailed 13-8 at half-time as the second quarter followed a similar pattern to the first. Fylde seemed to receive an inspirational team talk at half-time as they flew out of the blocks to narrow the gap after the first three quarters at 20-17.
It was a closely contested match, until York began to run away with the game in the last quarter as a few Fylde heads began to drop. The final score read 35-21 to James College of York. Goal-attack for York Rachel Bunce was in inspired form throughout the whole match, finding space on every occasion with consummate ease, before nonchalantly despatching each opportunity as it came. York’s finishing prowess and ruthlessly efficient performance was ultimately too much for Fylde.
