Crown Jewels Onyx missed out on silverware in week two of the Bedford and District Netball League cup finals.
They were playing Cranfield Tigers in the Second Division final.
Crown Jewels and Cranfield Tigers were in runners-up and third place respectively in their leagues.
Tigers eventually won the first quarter by six goals to four. In the second quarter, Tigers edged ahead and with minutes to go, Crown Jewels could not get the ball into their goal shooter, Jess Micallef, and went down 5-2.
The third quarter was a different story - Tigers scored first but Crown Jewels with Jema Spicer in defence ensured they took a 5-1 lead. Tigers fought back and it was back down to a one-goal lead for Crown Jewels but they held their nerve and their centre passes and came out winners 7-5.
Crown Jewels needed to win the last quarter by a four-goal margin. Both teams were nervous and the game went with centre passes for the first few minutes.
