The Polytechnic Staff netball team, on Friday, September 13, managed to beat City Assembly women by 9 goals to 8 in a friendly match at the Polytechnic sports ground.

The match, which started with the home team trailing by 4 goals in the first quarter, had a tremendous turn after the introduction of Sarah Juma who netted in enough baskets together with a fellow goal shooter Alice Matewere to give them a lead.
