Strong start for Peebles teams

Sunday evening saw the first two matches of the Borders Netball League second division take place, with Gala making their debut on the Peebles court.

Despite some outstanding play from these youngsters in their first competitive outing, in which they matched the centre court play of the Peebles Jets in most respects, they could not find the finish to secure the goals which left them lagging on the scoreboard. Final score: Jets 23 Gala 4.

Jets captain Fiona Forsyth was delighted with her team’s performance and their first win on the circuit.

Second on the bill was the eagerly-awaited contest between the Peebles Hotshots and Lauderdale Ladies.

Despite some serious threats from Lauderdale in the opening quarter, the Hotshots gradually pulled away to secure their second division win and move them to joint leaders with the Jets after the first evening of play. Final score: Hotshots 30 Lauderdale 17.

The next league evening is scheduled for Sunday, January 25.
