Three-way tie at top of table

by Kent Caddick

Greenpark, Broadfield and defending champions Lincoln are all locked together at the top of the Selwyn premier netball competition after the latest round of action over the weekend.

All three now have 10 points after three games of round two of the competition, with all three having drawn matches in the last couple of weeks. 

Following Lincoln and Broadfield’s 60–60 draw the previous weekend this weekend it was Greenpark A’s turn when it came up against the club’s B team at the Lincoln Event Centre on Saturday.

In an entertaining match, no quarter was given in the battle of Greenpark with the B team showing its competitive side.

With the last shot of the match, the B’s pulled level with the A-side to have the match all locked up at 50–50 at full-time.

Greenpark A sits at the top of the table courtesy of a superior goal difference, but both Broadfield and Lincoln are also on 10 points.

Broadfield had a relatively comfortable 56–34 win over Southbridge B, while Lincoln was made to work a bit harder for its points against Southbridge A, before running out winners 64–51.

Meanwhile, Rolleston and Broadfield B sit atop of the points table in the Premier two division.

Rolleston had a 55–34 win over Lincoln B while Broadfield B was equally impressive in its 54–36 win over Prebbleton.

In the other match of the round West Melton, which is now third on the points table, eased passed Burnham 52–35.
