Marshalls under-14s were too strong for Woodford Warriors under-13s in their latest junior league outing at the weekend.

Player of the match Bethany Hawkins and Abby Vile were able to slot home their shots in the first quarter as Marshalls opened up a healthy lead.

But the coach swapped things about, as Emma Baldino moved alongside Hawkins, while coaches player Eloise Long and Rebecca Wallis used their height to great advantage in defence.

Alexia Hodgson, Lucy Grundy, Katie Adams and Zoe Hillier worked hard in mid-court to intercept a host of Woodford passes as Marshalls ran out 45-2 winners.

The under-13s were up against it in their match with Essex Open under-14s and Molly Hickman and Molly Hall were allowed few chances to score.

Player of the match Mia Lickfold and Ella Wilkins linked up well in the defensive circle, as Chloe Tame, Emma Greyson and Bella Lacey fought hard in mid-court, but Essex Open claimed a 52-6 win.

Marshalls under-12s had a real game of two halves against Essex Open Maroon, as Abi Clarkson and Shannon Ince joined forces to hold their rivals to a single goal in the first quarter.

Aoife Moloney and Daisie Stuart-Evans combined well to net goals at the other end and build a 4-1 lead, with Marshalls still holding a three-goal lead at the midway mark, after Pyper Whittlestone paired up well with Ince in the defensive circle.

Essex turned the match around in the third period, though, as strong winds made it difficult for Caitlyn McGlinchy, Victoria Richards, Millie Walker and Ruby Sayer in mid-court.

And their shooters kept the pressure on to seal a 15-9, despite the efforts of coaches player Clarkson, as the team shared the player of the match prize.

The under-11s took the lead against Phoenix, with some great linking between Annabelle Smith, Annabelle Poulter, player of the match Gracie May Hickman and Ella Kilby.

Sam Willoughby, Bobbi Lehane, Caoimhe Moloney and Lexi Trotman worked tirelessly in mid-court to leave Marshalls 5-4 down at half time.

Lily Chamberlain and Eva Buenaventura tried to keep the pressure on in the second half, but Marshalls lost 14-6.
