Team Bath set new English Super League record

Team Bath set new English Super League record

TeamBath’s netballers set a new Superleague highest score record tonight (Saturday) as they beat Leeds Met Carnegie 91-24.

The emphatic victory – achieved at a rate of a goal every 45 seconds – also means TeamBath are guaranteed to end the league phase of the Superleague at the top of the table and so will have home advantage for the first of the end of season play-off matches.

TeamBath broke their own record scoreline - an 84-24 victory over Team Northumbria achieved in February – in tonight’s match in Leeds.

And they kept the pressure on Leeds for the full 60 minutes, restricting them to just seven goals in the last two quarters.

“It was a good solid team performance,” said head coach Jan Crabtree, whose team have now won 12 from 12 in the Superleague this season, with just two games remaining in the regular season.

“I was pleased that we kept at it for the full 60 minutes and that we restricted their shooters so well, particularly in the second half of the match,” she added. “We accelerated away at the end.”

England Pamela Cookey hit 9 from 11 in the second quarter, when she came on to play at goal shooter. She moved to goal attack for the rest of the game, hitting a perfect 12 from 12 in their third quarter and then 13 from 13 in quarter four.

“It was good fun,” she declared after the game. “We’ve been trying to beat our old record score, so it was great to beat the record so convincingly.

“I was definitely pleased with 100 per cent in the last two quarters,” she added. “But we were very good throughout the court tonight. Everyone just clicked.”

TeamBath return to action on Saturday 28th April when they take on Brunel Hurricanes at the Sports Training Village.

Quarter scores (TeamBath second): 10-20; 7-20 (17-40), 3-23 (20-63), 4-28 (24-91)

Starting sevens: GS Rachel Dunn, GA Tamsin Greenway, WA Sasha Corbin, C Jo Binns, WD Sara Bayman, GD Billy Bowers, GK Eboni Beckford-Chambers.
