Romsey trounced Lancefield 82-27 in a Riddell District Football Netball League A Grade netball derby on Saturday.

Romsey have lost two games and won two in season 2019.

Redbacks’ goal shooter Rebecca Hicks was dominant, scoring 73 goals from 79 attempts – a 93 per cent accuracy – while attacking partner Rhiannon Ezard chipped in with nine goals from 12 shots.

Jordan Furness did her best to keep the Tigers in it with 16 goals from 25 shots, but the Redbacks defence was suffocating, allowing Lancefield to take 45 shots for the whole match.

Romsey coach Luke Marko Rawlings said it was a good all-round effort from his side.

“Our partnerships in both rings were a real highlight from the game with plenty of turnovers coming from the midcourt,” he said.

“It was great to see Becca have her first real stand out game at the club with her shooting so many goals and it was also great to see Lauren come down from B Grade and put on a clinic in C Grade for us.”

Wallan extended its record to 4-1 with a 50-47 nail-biting win over Riddell.

Playing at Riddell, Wallan led by eight goals at half-time thanks to perfect shooting from goal shooter Chloe Meulenmeesters before Riddell started to fight back in the second half, closing the gap to six at three-quarter time and pushed hard to steal the win before running out of time.

Meulenmeesters had another great game for the Magpies, missing just two of her 32 attempts to score 30 goals, while Matilda Lethlean was also key up forward scoring 20 goals on 24 shots.
