Local businesses faced off in a heated contest in this year’s Corporate Cup at the Faye Gladstone Netball Courts on Friday night.

The annual contest began in 2012 and is a mixed netball carnival for local businesses that saw nine teams battle it out to see who was the best business in the Town.

Split into two pools, the teams took part in a round-robin tournament with the top team from each pool coming face to face in the grand final.

In the grand final TSP took on the Flu Shots in an action-packed match.

It was a tight game in the first half, with both teams tied on seven apiece.

TSP came out guns blazing in the second half, scoring the first goal before Flu Shots responded.

An early fightback from the Flu Shots proved ineffective as TSP began to extend their lead during the final term with five unanswered goals to take the win 15-9.

TSP captain Tom Patton said they worked hard all night to get the victory.

“We were concerned, they had only lost one game, but we were undefeated and still are,” he said.

“It’s a good event, there’s a lot of people around, and it’s nice for the whole family.”

Port Hedland Netball Association president Kenliegh McGowan said the cup was an opportunity for businesses to get together for a fun night of sport.

“Everyone enjoyed themselves, it was a bit hot, but every-one pulled through and put teams on the court and had fun,” she said.

“The final was a really good game, it was only in the last part when TSP ran away with it, but it was close up until then.”
