Wasps Netball continued their winning streak with an emphatic 74-38 win over bottom side Team Northumbria at the Ericsson Indoor Arena.

The home side recorded their biggest win of the season to stay top of the Vitality Netball Superleague, as they prepare for another home game against Severn Stars on Monday evening.

The result was the perfect tonic for Tamsin Greenway’s side, who will be without key players Jade Clarke and Natalie Haythornthwaite for Monday’s match as they set off for the Commonwealth Games.

“It was a job well done and a big score,” said Wasps Netball Director Tamsin Greenway.

“We got the half time lead which is what we wanted, so we could get Jade Clarke and Nat Haythornthwaite off the court, so we could try some new combinations going in to Monday.

“It’s important we utilise the squad and make sure everyone is ticking over, particularly with Nat and Jade leaving us for a while.

“It did help us playing against six players towards the end of the match which we didn’t want because we wanted to practice some stuff but I’m really pleased with the score, and Rachel Dunn and George Fisher were outstanding once again.

“We’ve had a perfect start to the season and I’m gutted there’s a break coming up because the momentum is with us at the moment.

“It’ll be a tough game on Monday – we didn’t have a massive lead against Stars when we played them last time. It’s a quick turnaround for the legs but I’m hoping the momentum will stick with us.”

Team Northumbria drew first blood but it was Wasps who raced into an 8-1 lead as George Fisher finished off some slick combinations between Jade Clarke, Natalie Haythornthwaite and Rachel Dunn to finish the first quarter 17-9 ahead.

With one eye on Monday’s game, Tamsin Greenway opted to utilise her versatile squad in the second period by bringing herself on for Rachel Dunn at wing attack and pushing Natalie Haythornthwaite up to goal attack.

The move paid dividends as Wasps ran riot, adding a further 23 points to the board to lead 40-15 at half time as Team Northumbria’s defence couldn’t stop the attacking prowess of Greenway, Haythornthwaite and Fisher.

Fran Williams, Sophia Candappa and Dunn entered play for the third quarter as Wasps continued to pile the pressure on Team Northumbria.

The away side’s fortunes took a turn for the worse when goalkeeper Hayley Mulheron went into the sin bin for persistent offending.

Wasps began the fourth quarter with a healthy 55-25 advantage which also saw Renske Stoltz replace George Fisher at goal attack.

The away side were permanently reduced to six players with more than ten minutes to play as Mulheron was sent off for repeated offending.

Wasps took full advantage of the extra player to run away as comfortable victors, as Stoltze supported Dunn in stretching their side’s lead.

Wasps Netball return to the Ericsson Indoor Arena on Monday March 12 to face West Midlands rivals Severn Stars (7.00pm centre-pass).
