Bishop’s Stortford Handball Club under-14 girls end trip to Stoke Mandeville Stadium on a high by beating Dorset Handball in friendly





Bishop’s Stortford Handball Club’s under-14 girls ended a trip to Stoke Mandeville Stadium on a high by beating Dorset Handball in a friendly.

They triumphed 11-7 having suffered defeats to Stroud and West London Eagles before that in the second round of the National League South competition.

The fixture against Stroud was very close and Stortford led on a couple of occasions before succumbing 7-5.

They were then beaten 16-9 by the Eagles in a contest that included lots of fast breaks and quick goals as both teams made technical errors in defence and attacking mistakes.

Stortford were due to take on Poole Phoenix in their third match, but their opponents pulled out so a friendly with Dorset was arranged.

Tiredness began to set in, but the players performed well to register an 11-7 success.

Leah Pakala was top scorer on the day, closely followed by Sophie James. Beth March and Olivia Dimond were also among the goals.

Also in the squad were Ava Jarrett-Morris, Orlaith Morris, Alicia Mostari, Molly Taylor-Bass, Kitty Pointon and goalkeeper Keira Hider.
