South London Korfball’s second team – Balham – played the reverse of last week’s fixture against Bec 5 at home. A much closer scoreline, but still no points.

Matt Norman Captained the team and started in first attack with Charlie Corfield, Beth Fieldsend and Lesley Potter. In defence were Kingsley Ho, Chris Rennison, Vitoria Franceschini and Anna MacBride. Balham took a 2 goal lead, but Bec 5 got two goals back. A physical challenge for the ball after 10 minutes left Chris Rennison with a dead leg and Hayden Mullin came on as a substitute.

The teams traded goals. South London Korfball veteran Kitman Wong came on for the last few minutes, but to no avail. The game finished 7-6 to Bec. Lesley Potter and Beth Fieldsend were joint MVPs.
