Nelson's Tournament Finals
Nelson Victor Carter Handball Tournament Finals.
We witnessed two fantastic games of handball on Friday. The games were slightly longer in length than the qualifying games and all the players were superb!
The first game, officially started by Spyke Baker, Nelson's grandson, involved our younger players and it was fast and furious with lots of great throwing and catching and some amazing teamwork. An enthusiastic crowd cheered on both teams and the time flew by as Priory secured a 4:0 victory.
Then it was the turn of the Year 4,5 and 6s. Martello seemed to have the game all sewn up with a score of 2:0 after just a few minutes but Priory fought back bravely and with one minute to go the game was tied, two all. The pace picked up and both teams had chances so that we were witness to several close calls and some amazing saves from both goalkeepers. Then, in the dying seconds of the game, Priory scored the winning goal! Spyke said the game was so exciting he was going home to watch the highlights!!!
We would like to thank all the players and the audience for excellent sportsmanship throughout.
