TROJANS Korfball Club have retained their title as England korfball champions following the England Korfball League play-offs held at Whitgift School Sports Centre in Croydon last weekend. In the semi-finals held on Saturday, Trojans, who are based in Croydon, qualified for the final by defeating Norwich Knights 25-17 in their semi-final. Meanwhile, Tooting-based Bec defeated Epsom-based Nomads 18-11 in the other semi-final. In the final on Sunday, Bec quickly jumped out to a 5-0 lead against Trojans and led 11-4 early in the second half. However, Trojans fought back to level the scores and at full-time, the two teams were tied at 17-17. This meant the final would be decided by a period of "golden goal" extra time. Trojans' David Brooks put his side 18-17 ahead which meant that Bec were allowed one more attacking play to see if they could equalise. However, Trojans were able to regain possession of the ball to end the game and confirm themselves as national champions. Brooks was the top scorer for Trojans in the final with seven goals while Davesh Patel was the top scorer for Bec with six. Also on Sunday, Nomads clinched third place by defeating Norwich Knights 25-17 in the third/fourth place play-off. Joe Olds led the scoring charts for Nomads with eight goals in the match with Heather Ikwuemesi also contributing four for the Epsom side. At the same event, the England Korfball League promotion/relegation play-offs were played which included Highbury who are based in North London. However, Highbury found the tournament tough going losing all four of their matches. They will therefore remain in the London Regional League next season.
