The squad was Rosie Bartlett, Fabienne Bull, Tabi Fergus, Drew Robinson, Elinor Powell, Martha Lushington, Beth Gummow, Maia Whyatt and Scarlett Hughes
In Part 1 they came up against the North East top team Grangetown A tough encounter but Saints showed grit and determination to take a win 19-18. Against Team Matrix from the South Region errors cost the squad and they lost 10-26
These results gave them 2nd place in their group
In Part 2 first match was Rutland Rockets from the Midlands In this match the squad played their best Netball taking a great win 35-14
Next up was a very strong Chester team from the North West. Saints fought hard keeping with Chester in the first quarter but Chester pulled out a great performance to beat Rockets 30-18.
Chester went on to compete in the final taking 2nd place.
So Saints were placed 2nd in their group and were playing for 7th-12th places
Next up were Braintree Essex. Such a great start but mistakes in he last quarter allowed Braintree to come right back at them. Saints dug deep to hold out and win 23-22.
Next up was Leeds from Yorkshire. Again another great start with Saints leading by 4 But Leeds were an experienced side and they hassled their way back into the game With seconds on the clock there was one goal in it when Leeds brought it back to a draw and with their centre pass managed to seal the match 23-22. Saints had played so well and were so disappointed to lose in the dying seconds.
So 2nd in their group meant they were now playing off for 9th/10th place
Disappointment put aside the squad were determined to finish on a win. They saved the best until this last game and played a superb game to beat Barr Beacons from West Midlands 25-17
What a fantastic achievement for a team from Cornwall to be ranked in the top 10 in the country
Can't wait to do it all again next year. So hard work ahead!!
