Black Gold clear winner over Redwyns

Black Gold Sting was too good for Redwyns in the South Otago premier netball grade.

A wonderful defensive effort produced a 39-22 win.

The game started slowly with both team making errors.

Redwyns defenders Katie Willocks and Ashlea Katon worked hard to keep the ball out of the Black Gold circle.

Black Gold led 7-6 at the first break but dominated the next period, to take a 20-8 halftime lead.

Its defensive duo of Hannah Phillips and Bridget Holgate started applying a lot pressure to Redwyns shooters Marinka Kingma and Nadia Lyders.

Redwyns could muster just two goals, while at the other end Black Gold's shooters Mona Waikato and Christina Johnston were finding the middle of the net.

Black Gold extended its lead in the third quarter to 32-14.

Redwyns came out in the final quarter with determination and worked strongly together. Centre Kayla Dent impressed and Redwyns won the quarter 8-7.

Player of the day for Black Gold was Christina Johnston and Sam Hall claimed the honour for Redwyns.
