Broadfield was far too strong for Southbridge in the latest round of the Selwyn Netball Centre’s premier grade competition.

In the match, played at the Lincoln Events Centre on Saturday, Broadfield took the lead early in the first quarter and never let the advantage slip, running out comfortable winners 58–22.

Meanwhile, Lincoln proved too strong for Greenpark in the top of the table clash. Lincoln, the defending champions, were put under pressure by the Greenpark side but in the end were oo strong, taking out the match 57–51. 

The win moves Lincoln four points clear of Greenpark in the standings while Broadfield holds down third place, one point ahead of Halswell, which downed winless Burnham 52–33 in the other round four match of the day. This weekend Lincoln takes on Southbridge, Broadfield plays Halswell and Burnham faces up to Broadfield.
