The new Boston Netball League season began last week.

In League B, Royals earned a 25-13 victory against J’s.

A close first quarter saw Royals edge 4-3 in front, but fluent passing saw them dominate the second quarter, leading 14-4 at half time.

J’s then stepped up their game, but it was not enough as Royals earned the win.

The players’ player awards went to Helen Pick (Royals) and Ness Droy (J’s), while Libby Durrant (Royals) and Jess Elsom (J’s) were the umpire’s players.
