Match Report – Celtic Dragons v Severn Stars (Round 7 2018, Vitality Netball Superleague)
BY RONA HUNNISETT
After several close calls this season, Severn Stars finally notched up their first win of the 2018 Vitality Superleague season with a 66-46 win over UWS Sirens. The Stars finally put together four consistent quarters, inspired by a dominant defensive performance from player of the match Sam Cook and South African international Phumza Maweni, who tormented and frustrated the Scottish side’s attacking structure. Teamwork often takes time to build, with players finding their own connections and ways to mesh different styles of play. Although both teams joined the Superleague last season, Stars have the more settled line up with the majority of players from 2017 returning this year.
