Army Netballers Win Inter Services Title

The Army netball team have dominated the Inter Services Championships for another year.

They won the Masters, Development and Senior titles in Aldershot.

The Navy provided a tough test in their final match, but the Army still ran out 40-19 winners.

At the end of the first quarter, it was an even match.

Sam Usher had found her shooting range for the Navy, but Dee Bolakaro and Ellie Nawale provided a formidable Army front two to give them an 8-5 lead.

In the second quarter, the Army threatened to run away with it but the Navy stayed in touch.

They were just six points behind at half-time.

However, in the second half, the Army quality shone through.

The Army's squad, full of International talent, proved to be too much for the Navy to handle.

In the third quarter, they scored time and time again and were in control with a 32-17 scoreline.

Goals were much harder to come by in the final period of the match, but a comfortable win meant the Army held on to their Inter Services crown.

Earlier in the week, the Navy beat the RAF in the opening game of the tournament.

A 41-17 win meant by the end of the tournament, the Navy finished in second place.
