NETBALL: Toffee Apples still head table

ROOKIES 39 TOFFEE APPLES 29: Apples are still clinging onto the top of the table after this hard-fought match against the summer season winners.

Toffees led the first and second quarters with some superb attacking play from Rose, Broderick, Hales and Snowden.

The third quarter saw Rookies turn the tide though, as they double marked Snowden and got more balls into their lofty shooter.

Shinkin and Burdall put every ounce of energy into their roles but were fingertips away as Rookies plucked the ball out of the air above them.

Morris used her defensive knowledge to support them and blocked superbly as well as driving the ball down the court into attack.

The final scoreline did not reflect the skill and perseverance of Toffees who can be proud of their performance.

Player of match: Shinkin
