Benchwarmers progress to Fast5 Mixed Netball final

Norfolk & Chance will go into the Mixed Fast5 Netball grand final next week as favourites after their easy 38-20 major semi final win over Mambo No 5 on Friday night.

The Minor Premiers continued their unbeaten winning streak after taking control from the outset of last week’s game.

Norfolk & Chance led 9-5 at the first break and 11-7 at half time and they blew out the score to 27-10 in the third quarter when they used their Power Play option (which gives them double points for each goal) to great effect and finished strongly to record the 18 points win.

Benchwarmers finished as 20-14 winners over I Dunno in the minor semi final on Friday after having started off well thanks to some accurate long range shooting by Travis Schintler.

They led 6-3 at the first break, were up 8-5 at half time and a big third quarter saw them extend their lead to 18-13.

A low scoring final quarter by both teams saw Benchwarmers through to a 20-14 win.

Benchwarmers will play Mambo No 5 this Friday night in the final with the winner to
play Norfolk & Chance in next week’s grand final.
