MATCH REPORT: BENECOSMAVERICKS V ENGLAND MEN - SATURDAY 13TH JANUARY

17th January 2018

benecosMavericks stormed to a massive 84-33 friendly win against the England Men’s team on Saturday.

Playing their first home friendly ahead of the new Vitality Netball Superleague season, which starts in February, benecosMavericks fans were treated to a spectacular showing. They also got to see the team’s new signings for the first time; Karyn Bailey looked particularly sharp in the shooting position.

The friendly match was played in six 12-minute periods, and the benecosMavericks pulled away by more and more goals each time, the girls’ superior fitness clearly showing. All squad members took to court, giving Head Coach Kat Ratnapala the opportunity to try out lots of combinations ahead of the SuperLeague season opener.
The men put on a great match also, entertaining the crowd and making the benecosMavericks squad work for the result.

Lindsay Keable was named Player of the Match thanks to a strong display in defence against some big opposition. The first and final quarter were also broadcast live on Facebook and can still be viewed here benecosMavericks Facebook Page

The VNSL season starts for benecosMavericks on the 12th February away in Cardiff to Celtic Dragons, with the first home game coming on 19th February against local rivals Surrey Storm.
