Taunton Netball teams enjoy mixed fortunes


CHECK out the latest results for Taunton Netball Club teams, including Vivary's triumph over Bodmin in Regional League 3

Vivary, sponsored by Shine Hair Management, played newly promoted Bodmin in Regional League 3 winning 41-37 in what turned out to be a very tightly contested match for the full 60 minutes. The match saw both teams strong through the court with quickness and intensity showing through. There were turnovers present at each end and Bodmin showing they were super quick on their break. A nerve wracking fourth quarter saw the teams going goal for goal with basic errors creeping in under the pressure. Vivary managed to hold their nerve and with interceptions converted into valuable goals they walked away with a hard fought win. POM was Nicole Smith, OPOM was Meg Palmer.

The squad: Lauren Wilkinson, Nicole Smith, Emily Tong, Lauren Knight, Meg Palmer, Freya Bryant, Susie Marsh, Faye Symons.

Tone, sponsored by The Kings Arms, played Wells’ Swans in the premier division winning 66-47. Ready for a physical match, Tone started off strong with good positioning by Fee at GS, lots of turnovers in defence and lots of quick, accurate passes into the circle giving them a winning lead of 18-11. In the second quarter Tone had great options down the court and great feeds into the circle. Despite Swans starting to close the gap, Jade at GA showed great strength against the GD and some more turnovers in defence meant Tone kept their lead (29-24). Tone’s game was still strong in the third quarter with some lovely feeds from Kim at WD to Fee at GS and plenty of composed play throughout the court allowing Tone to pull away (46-33). In the final quarter Tone continued to support one another down the court with Ruby at WA showing amazing strength against a physical WD giving Tone a well deserved win. POM was Ruby Porter.

The squad: GS Fee Grammer, GA Jade Barnett/Lauren Knight, WA Ruby Porter, C Hannah Robins, WD Kim Tong, GD Tejah Mossman/Nicole Smith, GK Lucy Jones.

Monmouth, sponsored by Wilkie May and Tuckwood, played Keinton’s Kestrels in the premier division losing 36-48. A last minute change to the timings made it an earlier start than planned, but at least the weather was on Monmouth’s side. The first quarter saw Kestrels open up an early lead before Monmouth could find their feet. The flow seemed to pass from one team to the other every few goals with the Monmouth girls hanging in there (8-12). Clear instructions from coach Gracie saw Monmouth start strong in the second quarter. The defence’s positioning improved forcing errors which Monmouth managed to capitalise on; a promising quarter (17-21). Due to injury changes had to be made, with several players not in their selected position. There were some promising moments and definitely lots of commitment fighting for every loose ball, but the Kestrels attack were on fire punishing any Monmouth mistake (26-37). In the final quarter Monmouth gave it their all and managed to stick goal for goal. Unfortunately they were unable to claw back the advantage Kestrels had created in the first three quarters. POM was Vicki Cornish.

The squad: Vicki Cornish, Hannah Cork, Molly White, Kim Radford, Erin Humphris, Amy McGregor, Verity Ward, Freya Bryant.

Quantock, sponsored by Mecca Bingo, played Wells’ Bishops in the first division winning 45-30. Quantock started strong with some great interceptions from the defence and with strength in the circle they took the lead at the end of the first quarter. With Bishops upping their game and making it harder for Quantock’s shooters, they had to up their game too to keep the lead with some good defence in the circle and supporting each other down the court they kept their lead. Quantock kept the pressure on Bishops’ passes and managed to gain interceptions and shoot accurately. Going into the last quarter Quantock had a good lead and played their game managing to seal the win. POM was Abbey Teape.

The squad: Helen Lucas, Maisie Reynolds, Claire Mason, Kate Durbin, Abbey Teape, Sharlie White, Melissa Cleverly, Nicole Smith.

Priory, sponsored by Matt Durbin Associates, played Gamington’s Newbarn in the second division losing 38-49. The first quarter was a slow start for Priory leaving Newbarn to take the lead (8-16). During the third quarter Newbarn increased their lead regardless of the multiple interceptions made by Priory’s defence (27-42). Unfortunately Priory were unable to get the win in the final quarter despite the strong team effort. POM was Gugu Mlotshwa.

The squad: GS Zoe Stacey, GA Sophie Bond, WA Andrea Dobson, C Sarah Hughes, WD Gugu Mlotshwa, GD Denise Evely, GK Ellie Tolman.

Blackdown, sponsored by Mortgage Select, played Galmington’s Queensway in the second division winning 45-44. A very close and competitive game was to follow, with the lead changing hands too many times to count. With good defence from both teams and turnovers all over the court the first quarter saw Queensway edge the lead (13-11). Blackdown fought back in the second quarter and quickly created some turnovers that the shoots capitalised on for Blackdown to take the lead (22-20). Quarter three, despite non-stop efforts and brilliant feeds into the shoots, saw Queensway edge ahead again with a lead of 34-32. The final quarter was all to play for and it was clear it could go either way. Blackdown had some last minute interceptions which allowed the 45th goal to go in leaving no time for Queensway to equalise; a great, hard fought game from the whole team. POM was Ali White.

The squad: GS Lucy Cox, GA Tasha Levy, WA Kate Stubbins, C Louise Frost, WD Victoria Saban, GD Ali White, GK Rhonda Robins.

Tudor, sponsored by Marked Skin, played Wells’ Canons in the third division winning 43-22. In the first quarter Tudor played well with a few turnovers and took a lead of 8-5. Tudor picked up a lot of loose balls in the second quarter and interceptions, increasing their lead to 19-8. In the third quarter the defence received lots of rebounds and tips which were brought down to the shooters who duly converted (32-16). The final quarter saw further interceptions and rebounds to secure the win. POMs were Lucy Hird and Sophia Valmiki.

The squad: GS Lucy Hird, GA Maddy Russell, WA Ally Gabell, C Charlotte O’Leary, WD Libby Binding, GD Sophia Valmiki/Kate Hine, GK Tanya Binding.
