Tone 24 Wells Bishops 29
Wells Bishops finally picked up a first win of the season when they produced a polished performance at Tone, despite travelling with a couple of players missing.
The visitors started well and took the lead inside a few minutes. Gill Taylor and Les Jefferies were strong in defence, rattling the Tone shooters, who had to change their attack in an attempt to get some goals.
Bridie Marsh backed up the defence well, despite getting knocked over several times, and displayed a determined attitude on her Bishops debut.
The game became more physical during the second quarter, although the umpire's whistle rarely blew. Laura Davidson had a continuous battle with her opponent and had to leave the court injured after being squashed between two Tone players.
Kelly Randall and Laura Bryant altered their positions to ensure the departure did not affect Bishops' play and they continued to increase their lead before the final whistle.
Accurate movement and shooting from Hazel Davidson earned her the player of the match award as Wells secured five much-deserved points.
