By Lauren Thomson
On the 21st of February the Galashiels Academy Senior Netball Team travelled to Peebles to play the Tweedale Tigers in an intensely fought netball match.
A fairly even first quarter ended 2-2, with some great defence from Melissa Gordon and Lisa Cavaroli.
During the second quarter the Gala team pushed on and worked well together to score a further 10 points with some brilliant shots from Niamh Doyle and Sophie Birtwistle. With only one opposing goal, the score at half-time stood at 12-3.
In the third quarter Tweedale Tigers applied more pressure on the Gala team but some great positioning from Debbie Patterson, Lauren Thomson and Lotta Bradtke meant the ball was passed up the court to Anne Mckechnie who scored some great goals to take the score to 21-5.
In the final quarter Tweedale put up a strong fight. Some effective marking from Caris Brus and Lindsey Pate helped to secure a resounding victory of 28-8.
The fair-play award, chosen by Tweedale Tigers, went to Lauren Thomson.
