Team Jets head coach Linda Andrews says the Jersey side will learn from their 50-40 loss to Grangetown in Netball's Premier League Two.
The islanders trailed from the first quarter as their six-game unbeaten run came to an end in Middlesbrough.
"It's always a learning curve and we're in this league to learn - today that's what it was about," Andrews told BBC Radio Jersey.
The island side are now fifth in the 10-team league.
"If you don't have a challenge in your play then you're not going to learn," added Andrews.
"We'll take from this, we won the last quarter 10-7 and closed it up to 10 points, so it was a good performance
"We weren't at our best, but sometimes some teams don't allow you to be at your best."
