Royston 21 Team Bedfordshire 33

ROYSTON battled hard against a strong Team Beds side who boasted a number of Super League players.

The first quarter saw some excellent defending by Anna Pinner, Jo Moxham and Natalie Williams, and the first quarter was all square at 7-7.

The second quarter was another tough battle, although it was the visitors who managed to pull away.

In the third quarter Team Beds edged further in front with five well-taken goals.

But in last quarter Royston made some changes, with Jackie Huttleston coming on, a move that seemed to give them renewed energy, with player-of-the-match Emma Higton particularly impressive in front of the net.

Royston: Moxham, Pinner, Williams, Huttleston, Hume, Higton, Stimson, Parcell, Winser.
