Clinton James and Menai Bridge turned on the power in North West Wales Netball League Division One with huge goal hauls of 66 and 59 respectively on Monday night.
The Bridge took on St Asaph Thunder and emerged victorious 59-37 on what ended up a ‘night of the Kats’ as two players with that christian name took the Player of the Match awards – Hughes for the Anglesey side and Williams for Saints.
It was a well-fought game by both squads. Despite a storming last quarter for St Asaph it was not enough to claw back the lead Menai had.
A nod to Rhyl PoM Anneka OConnor for her sharp shooting in the team’s 66-19 defeat to Clinton James. Anneka rarely missed a shot.
Division Two saw Colwyn Swifts beat Menai Thunder 38-31.
Colwyn dominated most of the match, but in the second quarter Menai clawed back the deficit to within just one goal. There was only two in it entering the last, but from there Swifts pushed on to take the victory.
The Llandudno club dominated the Thundercats in two divisions tonight.
Division Three saw the Tornadoes comfortably overcome the Thunderkittens 49-12.
A masterclass was given by the Tornadoes with some fast passing and tight marking. A goal to work towards for the Kittens in the second half of the season, but an early Christmas present of their new kit softened the blow.
