Rubies 25, Abbey 54
SYDENHAM Rubies first match of the season ended in a 54-25 defeat to Abbey on Saturday.
In the first quarter, Abbey managed to take the lead, but a change of positions in the second quarter allowed Rubies to try out different combinations.

With accurate shooting from Abi Ridler and Hannah Reed, Rubies started to pull back, but unfortunately Abbey managed to take the lead and ran out winners by 25-54.
Player of the match went to Mikki Hole. Umpires vote went to Hannah Reed.
