Kansas City (KC) Netball Club were in impressive form against Celtics from Heideveld in a Mitchell’s Plain Netball Union Division-A League match at Westridge on Saturday.

KC beat Celtics 51-13 in a one-sided affair in front of their loyal supporters who witnessed a “blitzkrieg” in play during the first two quarters of the game. The contest was over as early as the second stanza as KC deservedly built up a commanding 24-7 lead. Two players stood out for KC – goal shooter Betina Philips and the evergreen Tamslee Martin, who between them were responsible for all their team’s goals.

Martin walked away with the sharpshooter award on the day for scoring 40 points and only missing with her first attempt. Celtics were unable to cut off the supply to the KC goal aces and tried in vain to get their A-game going.

Tactically, the Mitchell’s Plain-based team were successful in turning their rush defensive patterns into attack with Deidré Parker and Rozay Martin combining well in the middle of the court.

They took control of the game with swift service to their goal shooters and forced Celtics into unnecessary errors with their attacking play. The “Green Machine” had a day to forget on the netball court, and forced positional changes during the game did not help their cause either. Celtics’ playmakers Justine Adonis and Nadine Gelderoom were kept quiet throughout the game and as a result their goal attacker, Ronelle Coater, lived off scraps from the start. KC coach Nazzem Dulvie was a happy man after the game. “I am ecstatic with the win as it takes us on top of the league standings on goal difference with Goldhill breathing down our necks,” he says.
