Congratulations to Southampton Spartans City 2 team for their promotion to OKA 1st division!
City 2 team played on Sunday 8th May at St Greggs School in Oxford against Oxford City 2 and Oxford University 1 teams for the promotional places in Division 1 of the Oxfordshire Korfball League. Although it was a beautiful day for korfball, it was also the hottest day of the year so far. Despite the extreme heat in the sports hall, City 2 managed to narrowly secure a win against Oxford City 2 with a score of 14-13. The next match against Oxford University 1 followed shortly after. The heat of the sports hall and tiredness from playing in an all day tournament the day proved to be too much for our players. Unfortunately, City 2 lost 10-5 to the University 1 team. The promotional place now rests on the result of the match between Oxford City 2 and Oxford University 1. Fortunately for the Spartans, Oxford City 2 also lost 7-10 to University 1. With one win and one loss, Spartans City 2 team gets promoted to Division 1 and the university team stays in Division 1.
Good luck to City 2 team in the season 2016-17 in Division 1 !
