Mixed netball has made its return to the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre, with plenty of action-packed matches in the opening round.

One team that got themselves off to a great start were the High Flyers, who secured a 32-15 victory over the Hornets.

Despite the Hornets starting off showing a lot of agility on the court, the High Flyers worked up an early lead thanks to goals from Joanne Johnson.

As the Hornets strived to bounce back from their quarter-time deficit, the High Flyers continued extending their lead with quick passes, dodging the high-flying Hornets.

The High Flyers also showed strength in defence, holding the Hornets to just seven points at half-time, trailing by 16 points.

However, the High Flyers were too strong and went on to secure the victory over the Hornets.
