The senior women’s netball team Goldhill Legends have completed a five-star performance to clinch their second successive knockout title of the Mitchell’s Plain Netball Union (MPNU).

Their cup win on Saturday joins their Division A league title they won earlier this season. Legends, who beat Bravehearts 40-18 in the final, were always in control of the game.

Bravehearts tried in vain to move the more experienced Legends around the court. Bravehearts’ centre Cetlia Titus and goal attack Sherezaan Trouceila tried their best to match the defensive pattern of the Legends with their quick passing. But goalkeeper Jill Dickenson stood tall to guard the net.

All four quarters of the game belonged to the Legends as they dictated play with Celeste Damons causing havoc for the Bravehearts defence with her positional play. Damons and goal shooter Renske Burg shared the 40 points between them.

The final cheer from the small crowd was left for 60-year-old Fatiemah Stemmet, who is regarded as the Lionel Messi of netball in Mitchell’s Plain. She owned the middle of the court with her swift distribution and intelligent plays and outshone her opposition. Trouceila and Jameelah Jacobs shared the 18 goals of Bravehearts.

“Today’s game was an awesome game and I think it boils down to dedication, commitment and the love of the game. Burg was supported by the rest of the team,” says Pam Johnson, manager of Goldhill Legends.
