Team MGS finally won the B Division title in the National Inter-Schools Netball Championships 2014 which took place at the Yio Chu Kang Sports Hall on Monday 21 April.
In what their coach described as a “goal-for-goal match” against the defending Champion, CHIJ (Toa Payoh), Team MGS had only five minutes to overcome the opposition.
At half-time, the score was 14-14, and with five minutes left to the end of the game, there was still a deadlock at 25-25. In those final minutes the Goal Attack, Amanda Lim (Sec 4E) and Goal Shooter, Claire Seah (Sec 4E) who capitalized on her height (She stands tall at 1.8m!), scored 6 goals between them. The final score was 31-27 in favour of Team MGS.
Claire and Amanda affirmed that they “are honoured to be part of Team MGS”, and “so proud” that they have made their mark in the netball fraternity.
