Williamsfield, Pear Tree win Central Manchester titles
There were incentives galore as the finals of the Central Manchester Sports Development Committee netball leagues for the fourth quarter were completed at the May Day High School last Sunday.
For the second year in a row, Williamsfield emerged as champions, defeating Bombay 22-20 in an exciting senior final, which was decided in the last two minutes of the game.
The junior final was decided in similar fashion, with Pear Tree taking the title after outlasting Albion 16-13.
Porus snapped up third place by defeating Broadleaf 22-17.
The prize was impressive, with Williamsfield collecting $60,000, a trophy and 10 medals. Bombay were left smiling with $40,000 for second place, while Police garnered $30,000.
Pear Tree collected $50,000 for the junior crown, with second-place Albion getting $30,000 and Porus pocketing $20,000.
The payout for the individual awards were similarly decent, with Williamsfield’s Samantha Martin and Pear Tree’s Sheena Ricketts each taking home $10,000 for being the respective senior and junior Most Valuable players.
The Most Disciplined team award, copped by Albion, yielded a $25,000.
