Emily makes her debut for Hornets

HORNETS took on Replay with the game played on the outdoor courts at the Exmouth Community College.

The venue provided major relief to the players given the temperatures we have been enjoying of late!

Hornets won the first centre and fired home their first goal within seconds even though they were missing their usual goal shooter, Helen Chester.

This made Hornets have to think a bit harder when feeding the ball into the circle as Jeanette Dale who replaced Helen didn’t have the height advantage!!

This contest turned out to be one played in a wonderful spirit.

Hornets captain Louise Passmore, gave her 14-year-old daughter, Emily Steer, her debut. The youngster gave one hundred per cent throughout her time on the court against the more experienced Wendy Hoare, and managed to make a couple of interceptions and fire the ball back up court.

Hornets came away winning the game 54 goals to 16 with players of the match being awarded to Hornets goal attack, Jacquie Rice and Replays goal defence, Maria Dorothy.
