Derby day delight.

The Cardiff derby was keenly contested, with City wanting revenge for last season's defeat.

The Dragons were on a mission to replace their rivals at the top of the EKL.

After a quick exchange of penalties, City moved ahead through some accurate shooting from Ceri Jones.

The first half was dominated by the Dragons defence which stifled any attacks for the rest of the half, while gradually the team inched into a 4-3 lead.

The second half exploded into life with a moment of korfball genius by Lee O'Sullivan who set up a running in shot with a perfect feint.

The scoreboard totted up with clinical finishing from Cardiff City's Susan Belfourd and Ramzi Barbir competing against the Dragons' dominance around the post.

The away side managed to maintain a lead without ever pulling away enough to put victory beyond doubt.

Helen Gubby's running-in shot made it 6-4 until Remco Broekhuis ended the scoring with his fifth goal of the game from near the half-way line.

Next weekend, both Cardiff clubs will head over the border compete in the British Korfball Association Cup.
