WaliB’s have finished runners-up in Division Two of the Gwynedd and Anglesey Winter Netball League – but it was a mighty close-run thing in the end.
Involved in an epic battle with a young Tacos team, WaliB’s eventually won just 17-16 to clinch second place in the division by a point from Wnion and Moniars.
WaliB’s trailed 5-6, 6-11 and 10-13 over the first three quarters, but then pulled a rabbit out of a hat to win the last 7-3 and take the match.
Champions Llangefni were beaten in their final game by an inspired Amigos, who had won only two of their previous 15 matches.
