WESTON Netball Club's second team continued their winning run with a win against Skybound.
The match was close, with Skybound's shooters putting up some amazing long shots to keep the score even. But Weston started to pull away by the second half, with shooters Mel Chilman and player of the match Jara Lapham working well together in the circle, with support from Rachel Mason and Becky Lewington in the attacking end.
Hellen Gilmore had another great game in defence, while Laura Stainer, Kemi Okunnu and Charlie Clews, who was making her 2010 debut for the team following an injury last year, all made some brilliant interceptions to help Weston take the match 43-32.
