South London Korfball’s Mitcham played Highbury 3 at home in a low scoring game but lost narrowly.

Tom Higton, Richard Watters, Caroline Banks and Sarah Broadberry started in attack; Jack Protheroe, Edwin Huijberts, Emily Brown and Alice Howard stared in first defence. Both teams defended well – or the attackers didn’t up their game. Jack Protheroe got 3 goals; Alice Howard 1 and Sarah Broadberry 1. South London were leading towards the end of the game but two lapses of defence allowed Highbury back in the game. A disappointing game, but good to compete with one of the top teams in the league.
