St Neots Rockets are celebrating cup success after being pipped to title glory.
The youth side missed out on the Bedford & District Netball League Youth Division One title to big rivals Grangers Hurricanes by virtue of an inferior goal difference, but that disappointment turned to delight when they beat the same opponents to capture the Youth Cup.
The showpiece clash was played over four quarters with each of them being treated as a match in its own right.
St Neots triumphed 6-2 and 7-2 in the opening two of them before being beaten 7-1 in the third. But a 5-5 deadlock in the closing clash secured the silverware.
The successful Rockets team is made up Emily Hinton, Emily Banks, Sam Harding, Tilly Hill, Charlie Churms, Kate Walker, Etilly Pigg, Ailish McAloney and Leah Smith.
