Lincoln too strong for Rolleston

by Kent Caddick

Defending champions Lincoln were too good for a youthful Rolleston side in the latest round of Selwyn Premier netball action.

Lincoln, which have dominated the premier division for the last few years, had too much experience for Rolleston in a rematch of last year’s final, running out 81-19 winners.

Rolleston had little answer to the power of Lincoln but never gave up in the match with Shaunagh Poutoa and Mikayla Gillespie standing out for the losing side. Broadfield moved into second place on the points table with a 67-53 win over previously secondplaced Greenpark. In the final match of the round Southbridge kept it close in its match with Halswell but finally uccumbed 41-48 with Kath Palmer once again leading from the front for Southbridge.

This weekend Greenpark take on Lincoln in the early game while Rolleston face Halswell and Southbridge is up against Broadfield.
