Fylingdales took on Scarborough Netball Club’s Sharks last Wednesday.
The Dales knew the Sharks’ strength lay in their fast centre court play but from the off, centre Kelly Storr more than matched the speedy young Sharks centre and Dales pulled away to lead 6-2in the first quarter.
In the second quarter, some great shooting from captain Chloe Purves and Jen Milburn saw ‘Dales score six more goals while Anna Welford and Sam Jones worked well to only let the Sharks score one to lead 6-3 at half-time.
Sharks had a good third quarter, scoring twice to the Dales’ three to make the score 15-5 going into the last session.
For the last quarter, the ‘Dales upped their work-rate again and with Emily Watson, Beth Hellawell and Zara Noble on top form and determined not to let the Sarks off the hook, ‘Dales romped to a superb 21-7 win.
This was a great win against a fancied side with Kelly Storr influential in controlling the centre court but for some outstanding play, player of the match went to Anna Welford.
