In Anne’s final game for the Redbacks (hopefully just for this year, not forever!), Sydney came within 3 after a flurry of four early goals by Newcastle proved to be the difference with the final score 10-13 in favour of the Royals.
With the series returning back to Newcastle, the Redbacks were looking to improve on their last result but unfortunately came up just short with the final score being 14-18 in favour of the Royals.
Sydney Redbacks travelled north only a week after the National Club Championships to take on Newcastle Royals for the first time in Gosford.
The National Club Championships took place this year in Victor Harbor, South Australia over the June long weekend. Sydney sent over a 10 person strong team consisting of 5 male players (Daniel, Graham, Rob, Ian and Coach Mark) and 5 female players (Sarah, Anne, Nancy, Meena and Neha).
The last game before the Redbacks and the Royals made their trip to Nationals in Victor Harbor was very close, with Sydney coming away with a 6-5 win.
The second match of the NSW Korfball 2017 series saw a return to Newcastle, with the Redbacks making their first trip up the M1 for the year.
The 2017 season kicked off on the 23rd of April with the Sydney Redbacks taking out the first game of the NSW Korfball series 14-9 over the Newcastle Royals.
