Fiat Netball Super League-Team Bath trounce Celtic Dragons

TeamBath delivered a master-class in match winning netball against
Celtic Dragons in Cymbran to make it “lucky for some” Round 13 in the
FIAT Netball Superleague, although luck played no part in the
defending champions dominant win.

“We were totally outclassed tonight,” admitted Celtic Dragons head
coach Melissa Hyndman, “the pressure was on them because there was a
chance they could drop out of the top four for 24 hours.

“At the end of the day the true reflection of the score shows how far
off the top four we are. We have never really been pushed at this
level and have not been capable of beating this competitive”

It’s been a good few weeks for the Welsh outfit and they came into the
Friday night game off the back of a win over their rivals for fifth
place Loughborough. Lightning had previously dented Bath’s push up the
table handing them a 2-goal defeat in Round 11, which all-in-all had
left Dragons confident of their chances of creating an upset.

TeamBath were taking no prisoners, look at the shooting stats! A
perfect game for Pam Cookey 28 shots and 28 goals, 88% for Asha Tett
and 89% for Rosie Allison for a team accuracy rating of 93% - not bad

Jess Garland TeamBath’s head coach came away with more than she
thought she would. “It was a good assertive performance in the first
quarter which we were able to build on through the game. It really was
a pleasing squad performance which resulted in a better than expected

As for the Dragons coach “This was a reality check for us, which maybe
we needed” said Melissa Hyndman.

A crushing performance from the reigning champions and sends a message
out that they may down in fourth but they are not out of the running
in their title defence.
