By Harry Mottram: The netball team based at the University of Bath have clinched a win in the super league having lost four games in a row. Last night (Friday 31st March, 2023) they played a home match against Leeds Rhinos winning by 61-54.
Imogen Allison (pictured) was named player of the match in which Leeds took an early lead as the Yorkshire chased their first win of the season.
Team Bath Netball Head Coach Asha Francis said: “It was tight at times and they were scoring really quickly, but we went down the other end and took control to always put the pressure back on them.
“What we can be proud of as a coaching team is the reaction we had to that first quarter. We made the change in bringing Sophie on for Kadeen and it had a positive impact. It was down to us to realise what had to happen to make sure that deficit didn’t get any greater.
“We were comfortable going goal for goal in the final quarter which is an excellent place to be.
“We want this to become an uncomfortable place for teams to come. We’re mainly playing teams around us in the table and we’re at home – there are no excuses about travel and fatigue. We’ll be looking to push on.”
