And not in a nice way.

South London Korfball Balham made the trip to Hammersmith Academy to play Supernova 4. Rita Hackforth-Jones made her debut, starting in attack with Froeks Kamminga, Chris Rennison and Richard Watters. In defence, Captain Anna MacBride was joined by Charlie Corfield, Vitoria Franceschini and Richard Smith-Utchotski.

The experience of Supernova was too much for Balham, Supernova built up an 8-0 lead before substitute Edwin Huijberts scored a running in shot. Our new players learned in the game and the second half was an improvement but not enough to make an impact. Froeks and Chris got on the score sheet, but so did Supernova – a number of times.

MVP was Edwin.
