The last games of 2013 in the High Peak Netball League took place recently.

Nouveaux against Taxal opened the evening and the game started with some good netball from both teams, with Taxal’s Katy Thornhill controlling the defence as they went into the break leading 8-5.

However, the half-time talk lifted Nouveaux more than their opponents and with some outstanding play from Emily Bacon, Nouveaux took the points winning 19-14.

Next to play was Kraken against Chinley B and it wasn’t long before Chinley quickly took control as they eased to a 16-3 win.

Then came the only A Division game of the evening, when Glossop took on Cobras, eventually running out 15-9 victors.

In the Violets versus Leftovers clash, the first half was a fairly close fought game before Violets stepped up a gear in the second, to seal a 16-6 triumph.

Finally, Lasses and Chinley A put on a great show to bring down the curtain on the year’s action, with Chinley running out 19-13 winners in a hard-fought encounter.
