Second place for u17s after 50-31 win

The Manx Rams netball team finished on a high in the u17 Netball Europe Challenge, beating Gibraltar to the silver medal.

The two teams were neck and neck for the first two quarters of the tournament's closing game, before the Rams galloped away in the third to record an historic win.

The final score saw the home team emerge victorious by 50 points to 31, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd at the National Sports Centre.

That result means the Republic of Ireland took the gold, with the Isle of Man getting silver, and Gibraltar settling for bronze.
