Arfon Ladies were given a real battle before eventually defeating determined opponents Aran 22-19 in Division One of the Gwynedd and Anglesey Netball League.
Aran were on the front foot from the start and with Arfon missing two shooters it was a tough night against the Dolgellau side’s defence. At one point Arfon found themselves five goals down.
It was 19-19 entering the final 90 seconds when Arfon went one ahead and their centre pass. With 38 seconds left Aran got a rebound from a missed Arfon shot and it could have been in the bag for the Dolgellau team with their centre pass to come but for another interception by Ladies, who scored to go two-up with 20 seconds to go.
The last goal came from a final interception by the Arfon defence and a sublime pass with three seconds to go from just inside the centre Aran goal side. It went straight into Arfon’s shooter to finish 22-19 on the final whistle. Amazing game by both teams.
Arfon Celts were always in control against Dyffryn Ladies. Dyffryn were missing players but it was one of them games where no matter how they played, Celts produced the better.
The game between Primos and Pwllheli was a see-saw encounter. Both won two quarters each, but the Primos successes were by higher margins. A hard fought battle by both teams though.
