Greenpark takes top spot

by Kent Caddick

Greenpark has gone to the top of the Selwyn premier netball competition after downing Broadfield on the weekend.

Broadfield, which upset defending champions Lincoln the previous weekend, was put under pressure from the opening whistle by the fired up Greenpark A side as it sought to maintain its winning start to the season.

It was a tight battle throughout the game — but when the final whistle blew Greenpark A took the match and the points, 58–56, to remain undefeated after three rounds.

Greenpark A now has a three-point lead in the competition ahead of Broadfield and Lincoln who both have nine points.

Lincoln got back to its winning ways after its first defeat in more than two years but was made to work hard by the winless Southbridge, before running out 52–41 winners.

Greenpark B kept in touch with the leaders after a comfortable 54–27 win over winless West Melton.

Meanwhile, Rolleston A and Southbridge B top the Premier two competition after both sides recorded wins over the weekend to remain undefeated this season. Rolleston was too strong for Lincoln B, winning 48–44, while Southbridge B thumped Halswell 58–24.

In the other match in the grade, Broadfield B were narrow winners over Burnham A, 49–44.
