HORNETS certainly displayed what can best be described as a lethal sting as they put CTC Lympstone to the sword to the tune of a 94-9 defeat, writes Louise Passmore.

HORNETS certainly displayed what can best be described as a lethal sting as they put CTC Lympstone to the sword to the tune of a 94-9 defeat, writes Louise Passmore.

With the opposition renowned for being a very friendly lot, the title challenging Hornets were looking forward to the clash and friendly action it most certainly was as the Hornets scored with almost every attack - all this after Lympstone scored first!

The Lympets also struck the final goal of the first quarter but, in between the Hornets rattled in 24!

The die was now cast for a one-side affair as the Hornets called on all their long experience of playing together and made the game look incredibly easy as they worked the ball about the court with real gusto and precision to such an effect that each time the pair of shooters had a sight of the net, they launched the ball, and scored.

In the third quarter, it was the turn of the Hornets defence to show their true colours. CTC did have good possession, but ,as hard as they endeavoured, they were unable to find a way past the excellent Hornets mid court combination of Lisa Browring, Di Smale and Jeanette Dale and, in the third quarter, the Lympets didn't muster a single score.

Although Hornets did come away overall winners by 94 goals to 9, Lympstone remained upbeat and their goal attack, Lauren Boitoult and wing attack, Sarah Cliff, shone through with their determination and consistency.

The Players of the Match were the respective wing attacks, for Hornets, it was Jeanette Dale and for Lympstone, Sarah Cliff.
