They gained a point for being less than five goals behind, mainly thanks to the sterling efforts of shooters Hannah Wood and Vicky Truman and great feeding from player of the match Ryannan Dolbear.

The next was against Natwest 3, who Weston had drawn with last time. This time the game was very different and Weston took the lead right from the start finally winning 41-28 with Rachel Mason winning player of the match for her efforts as centre.

The most recent game was against Crossbow 3, who had beaten Weston by nine goals the last time the two teams met.

It was a scrappy game with lots of mistakes from both sides, but thanks to great defence by player of the match Candice Quilliam, Molly Priddle, Vicky and Paula Williams and consistent shooting by Hannah and Ryannan, Weston held on to win 36-30.

Weston have also been doing well in Weston League, and last week beat Wyvern 66-18.
