Co-operative Netball Superleague: Five out of Five for Team Northumbria

Team Northumbria stays top of the Co-operative Netball Superleague after the side’s fifth win of the season, 64-30 over Celtic Dragons at Gateshead Leisure Centre this weekend.



The North East side stormed away from the first whistle, with captain Kelly Martin, Australian Elissa McLeod and England U19 Emma Lonsdale combining to great effect in centre court and leaving the Dragons flat footed and chasing their opponents.

Northumbria took the first quarter 19-2, and despite some spirited resistance from the Dragons, particularly in the final period, the lead was too great and the Tynesiders cruised to victory.


Meanwhile, Brunel Hurricanes continued their resurgence after a disappointing start to the season, with a 53-35 victory over Northern Thunder. Another Australian, Lara Welham, was the shooting star for Brunel, netting 25 of her 28 attempts on goal, and despite a second half fightback from the young Northern Thunder side, Hurricanes maintained their form and focus to move into equal second place in the table.


In Saturday’s final game, reigning champions TeamBath welcomed back England star Tamsin Greenway from England’s Netball World Championships campaign and her extra pace and accuracy helped her side to register an impressive 64-27 victory over early season league leaders Leeds Carnegie.


Tied in second place in the table at the start of the round of matches, Mavericks host Loughborough Lightning on Monday night (03 December 07) at the Hertfordshire Sports Village for what promises to be a closely fought, exciting game.
