Broadfield takes advantage of draws
by Kent Caddick
For the third week in a row, a Selwyn premier one grade netball match has ended in a draw.
Lincoln and Greenpark A both racked up their second draws of the season when the two sides clashed at the Lincoln Event Centre on Saturday.
At the full-time whistle, the two sides were locked together at 61-all, with Greenpark A having drawn with its B team the previous week and Lincoln drawing with Broadfield the week before.
Broadfield took advantage of the draws to move to the top of the table following its 72–41 thumping of Greenpark B.
Broadfield now has a two-point gap on Greenpark A and Lincoln at the top of the points table.
In the other Premier one grade match played on Saturday, Southbridge A beat Southbridge B, 45–40.
In the Premier two division, Rolleston and Broadfield B sit at the top of the table with both recording wins over the weekend.
Rolleston was made to work hard for the points by West Melton before running out 53–46 winners while Broadfield B had a win by default over Burnham. In the other match in the Premier two division, Lincoln B was too strong for Prebbleton, taking the match 58–30
Results: Premier one: Southbridge B 40 v 45 Southbridge A; Greenpark A 61 v 61 Lincoln A; Broadfield A 72 v 41 Greenpark B. Premier two: Rolleston A 53 v 46 West Melton A; Prebbleton A 30 v 58 Lincoln B; Broadfield B beat Burnham by default.
