Bridgwater Netball Club record two defeats
9:00am Thursday 12th September 2013 in Sport
Saturn 35 Hovelands 53
Bridgwater Netball Club's second team, Saturn started their season away to Hovelands of Taunton.
Great centre court play by Imogen Setter (C) and Karis Holleron (WA) combined with their superb feeding to the shooters Becky Palmer (GA) and Hannah Symes (GS) meant Saturn ended the first quarter only 10-8 down.
Interceptions and tips by the defensive duo of Sally Haysham (GK) and Emma Downes (GD) frustrated the home team in the second quarter but Hovelands upped their game leading 39-26 at the end of the third.
Saturn with some outstanding defence from Player of the Match Michelle Stone (WD) regained momentum and showed excellent promise for the season ahead.
Mercury 16 Queensway 51
Mercury's first match of the season was away to Taunton Queensway.
From the start they struggled to keep up with the experience of the home side.
Mercury battled throughout the game with some outstanding play from some of the younger players Aerin Phillips, Jess Webb, Chloe Trout and Victoria Saban, which is encouraging for the oncoming Season.
