On Saturday, the 4th of October the Newcastle Knights women's lacrosse team played their first league match of the season against Mellor.
It was a good start to the season with a new team member, Jessica Waugh playing her first match for the team. She did a fantastic job showing the skills that she's developed through the summer with the teams weekly training sessions.
The team were also joined by Molly Spencer, a trained goal keeper from Stockport. They are hoping that Molly will be able to join them for the rest of the season as Natalie Greening, the previous goal keeper left the team to work aboard, leaving the them needing the knowledge and skills that Molly can provide.
The Newcastle team were defeated but put up a good fight with the umpire commenting on how well the defence had played. Laura Towers and Molly Spencer were nominated joint man of the match.
Final Score Knights 0 - 17 Mellor
