Thames Overcome League Champions

EVER-improving Thames Ladies secured a nail-biting 19-18 victory over reigning English League champions Great Dane at Leyton SCORE Centre in London on Sunday.

With the scores level at 18-18 and two minutes remaining, Thames’s Nikoletta Papp scored from the back court over Great Dane’s defence to secure the win.

Thames were ahead 14-11 at half time after controlling the game well.

But coming out after the half-time break more determined, Great Dane rallied round to bring the score to level, at which it remained until the final two minutes.

Fiorella Franzini of Great Dane was declared player of the match, and she also was top scorer for her team with eight goals. For Thames, Live Kolstad Kvalsvik was top scorer with six.

In other women’s league action, Ruislip overwhelmed Cambridge 31-13.
