Ely 44 Burwell 33

ELY now sit just one point behind the league leaders after this eleven-goal victory. Jenny Calvert returned to put in an outstanding performance as goal-shooter and she was ably assisted by Donna Liddington and Paula Edwards. Ely established a six-goal lead by half-time.

Edwards was substituted for Amy Beck at wing attack and the fresh legs, along with great defensive interceptions by wing defence Georgina Barnes, helped stretch the lead to eight goals at the end of the third quarter.

Falcons 49 Hawks 31

THE Falcons claimed a well-deserved six points on Sunday morning. Having led from the first centre, the Littleport-based Falcons dominated the match with a fantastic performance. Excellent shooting came from Annelize van Deventer and Victoria Mack, Laura Neaves, Cass Haggart and Amanda Gibbins put in solid displays in the centre, while Lindsey Neaves and Hayley Wilson put a stop to Hawks' shooting with their spectacular defence.

The Falcons trailed 29-14 at half-time, but a change of tactics worked and they were comfortable winners.
