Lancaster korfball team continue winning start to season

Lancaster Phoenix Korfball Club

Lancaster Phoenix Korfball Club first team continued their 100 per cent winning start to the season.

They beat a Manchester Warriors team with some quality experienced players 12-5 in the northwest second division last Sunday.

Goals were well spread between the team but Squirrel and Maden both managed hat-tricks, the latter continuing his run of at least three goals in every game. 

Foster received MVP for the second weekend in a row due to his excellent rebounding and setting up of his teammates.

Both Lancaster Phoenix teams are back in action on November 5 in a double header against Manchester Hawks at the University of Cumbria.

Korfball is a ball sport, with similarities to netball and basketball. It is played by two teams of eight players with four female players and four male players in each team. The objective is to throw a ball into a netless basket that is mounted on a 3.5 m (11.5 feet) high pole.
