From the outset, Lightning took control of this game with shooters Maisie Simmonds & Wendy Burgess netting 23 of their 26 attempts!
During the 2nd & 3rd quarters, shooting opportunities were less as Rednock applied more defensive pressure on both Burgess & Simmonds. Becky Cambell had to leave the court carrying a foot injury & was replaced with Meg Suddaby at WD.
The combination in defence of Nikki Jennings & Jo Hutchings is getting better week by week. Saturday was no exception with both, particularly in the 2nd half, turning over numerous ball, denying the Rednock shooters many opportunities to score.
The mid court partnership of Katie Lyons & Jennie Bore is also looking good with the ball moving through court with speed & accuracy.
The final score of 55-36 was a reflection of Lightnings dominance in this game.
