Netball: Abbs Cross 3 Marshalls Park 2
Marshalls Park’s year nine netball squad slipped to a slender defeat in their opening fixture of the new Havering League season in midweek.
The Romford pupils took on their Abbs Cross rivals and the two sides were evenly matched throughout.
Abbs Cross took an early lead in the first half, but Marshalls produced a comeback in the second half, showing some excellent passing.
They were unable to convert their possession into points, though, and lost out by just one goal.
Amber Jarrett took the player of the match award for Marshalls.
Squad: G Kurkauskaite, A Harkness, M Haywood, M Fitzgerald, E Turley, L Branch, C Philpot, D Guinn, A Jarrett.
Christine Ohuruogu and Mo Farah have been nominated for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
