It was an eight goal win for Leeds Carnegie over Team Northumbria in
Round 4 of the FIAT Netball Superleague. The home side played the same
7 for all four quarters and the consistency paid off.
The two sides were evenly matched for the first half of the game. Both
teams were playing a little below par but for the neutral it was a
close run competition.
Leeds co-coach Lisa Ferneyhough was not too happy with the way that
her side started the match: “The first and second quarters we were
like for like. But we threw so much away ball our error rate must have
been really high.”
The visitors had the lead at half-time by just one goal. Carnegie re-
grouped in the half-time break and pressed on the third quarter which
they won 15-9, and by winning the final period of play 13-10 were able
to make it two wins from three.
Leeds Carnegie had Danielle Bloomfield back in the side, fully

“It was one we wanted to win” Ferneyhough admitted. “We were a bit
