#BearsDay- Netball 1st storm to victory

Walking into the large, spectator-packed, and annoyingly intimidating Brunel Netball hall, it was safe to say RHUL Netball 1st were feeling the pressure to win their first match of the season. However, once that first whistle blew, all nerves vanished and everyone was 100% focused and committed on winning the game against Brunel 2nds. RHUL had first centre and within 30 seconds Captain Freya Fownes (GA) had scored. A massive sigh of relief was had by the whole team, as that first goal is crucial and gets everyone pumped to score more. Brunel with the next centre, and as hard as the defence worked, it was soon one all. 5 minutes in, and it was still level at 3 a piece.
