Englands netballers overcame a feisty South Africa side 62-32 at the New
World Netball World Championships today to set up a quarter final
encounter with Malawi,who earlier defeated Wales 55-52.
In a scrappy first half, England led by ten, only to be pegged back by a
determined South Africa side. However, Geva Mentor and Ama Agbeze put
world class defensive performances to deny South Africa possession, while
Louisa Brownfield was England's shooting sensation, netting 23 goals from
24 attempts in the second half to put the game out of South Africa'sreach.
Coach Marg Caldow was pleased, but believes there is still work to do:
"It's delightful to have qualified - a real relief. It was good to have
the run off against South Africa tonight, because they're a top team and
they certainly put us under the pump there for a while. It was good
preparation as we go up to the next level and definitely gave us a wake up
In other matches today, Scotland, who will be in the 9th-16th place play
offs, lost to Australia 93-20, while New Zealand defeated Botswana 76-20.
