Shuttersport's Evan Barnes captured the Athletic College Old Boys batsman taking one for the team and being felled by a moving projectile which was probably aimed at the stumps but captured the innocent party in his gallop to the crease. But at the end of the day, in some version of retribution, ACOB delivered Car Company Stoke-Nayland a decisive 93-run defeat.

Photo: SUPPLIED Two young netball fans were at the heart of the thrilling on-court action at the Trafalgar Centre last Sunday night, flying the flags of the Can- terbury Tactix and Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic in a game that saw the Magic emerge winners in a 69-46 victory. Nelson's Bianca Rosewarne, 10, and Motueka's Laura Bowdler, 11, who both won the opportunity in the ANZ Future Captains competition, met captains Anna Thompson and Laura Langman before joining the two teams on court for the opening of the game. For Bianca, who has played netball for two years and attends Nelson's St Josephs School, it was the first time she had seen the players in the flesh. It was so cool, the best bit was prob- ably seeing Irene Van Dyk actually play in real life as she's my favourite player. I felt a bit nervous walking out in front of the crowd but it ended up being really fun. I had my whole family, even my nana in Adelaide, watching me on TV.'' Laura, who goes to Parklands School in Motueka, said she was completely sur- prised when she found out she had won. I didn't even know Mum had entered mesoitwaskindofinshockwhenI found out. I'm just about to start playing for the Future Ferns so it was cool to be able to see a real game and learn some skills.'' ANZ head of sponsorship Susan McGregor said it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the fans. We're giving 62 kids from around the country the experience to become an ANZ Future Captain. It's a thrilling oppor- tunity for young netballers to met their heroes and be part of the ANZ Champion- ship, a tournament they may even com- pete in, in the future,'' she said.
