Bridgwater Jupiter 59, Wyndham 24
AFTER a difficult start at Wyndham, league leaders Jupiter adapted their game and began to work as a team, leading the first quarter 11-8.
Baylea Charles (C) and Imma Matcham (WD) worked tirelessly in defence and gained many turnovers for Jupiter which were capitalised by Sammy Kemmish (GS) with her accurate shooting. Jupiter led the first half of the game 28-14.
Despite Wyndham’s efforts to push play forward, they were unsuccessful due to timely interceptions and effective communication by the efficient Jupiter team.
Becky Cowley (GD) continued to pressurise Wyndham’s shooters, and excellently-timed movements in the circle by player-of-the-match Rosie Hill (GS) allowed Jupiter to push on and win the match.
Saturn 37, Sharks 45
WITH a new team line out Saturn struggled to find their feet, allowing Sharks to take advantage ending the first half 25-12.
With changes made, a positive Saturn team came back out fighting with some precise and impressive shooting from Becky Palmer (GA) and Rachael Selway (GS).
The determination and strength flowed throughout the court with vital tips from Sammie Woolacott (C) and outstanding defending from joint players of the match Katie Chedzoy (GD) and Sally Haysham (GK).

Mars 28, Walton 55
