Division One

OPG 22, Flamingos 30

Wasps 41, Hi Q 22

Flamingos continued their run of fine form and are one game away from completing their fixtures with a 100 per cent record.

They were up against OPG who needed at least a draw to ensure second place if Wasps defeated bottom side Hi Q. The game started evenly but with Flamingos just edging the first quarter by 6-4. The second period was also close but OPG trailed by 9-12. With Rachel Burrows playing well for the Flamingos they continued to have the edge over OPG for whom Hannah Less was the stand out player. Flamingos slowly increased their lead and finished victors by 30-22 so that OPG were dependent upon Wasps being defeated by Hi Q.

Hi Q started the evening at the foot of the table still looking for their first win of the season, whilst Wasps needed a victory to ensure a second place finish at the expense of OPG.

With Sasha Williams enjoying another of her dynamic performances at centre, Wasps got off to a good start and by half way were 16-7 up.

The third period was a high-scoring affair with Jo Scott at WD for Hi Q playing well, but with Wasps increasing their lead to 28-16. Wasps continued to sting Hi Q and finished the game with a 41-22 victory that ensured they were runners-up to Flamingos. Hi Q still have one game remaining, against Bo-Peeps to gain their first win of the season.
