Weltevrede Netball Club put in a dominant performance against Tafelzucht at the Stephen Reagan Complex in Mitchell’s Plain on Saturday.

The A-division match lived up to the hype created between the two youthful teams, but it was Welties’s composure in all four quarters of the game that secured the 17-10 victory for them.

Tafelzucht were faster out of the blocks in the first stanza, spreading the ball around and targeting Jesse Gordon, the goal shooter, with long balls.

Gordon started off well and scored with her first two touches in the goal area, but these were soon closely marked, which uncharacteristically put her off her game.

There were positives out of the game for “Zucht” with the livewire centre, Nicole Meiring, running her socks off to spark a comeback.

Welties prevented the opposition from getting into a rhythm and outclassed them by slowing the game down and minimising their errors.

Two players led the charge for Welties – Roshaan Carr in wing attack and the goal poacher Renisha Daniels. Carr controlled the game throughout, with her Trojan-like performance earning praise from her coach Saan Brenner. “She was the difference today and kept us on the front foot, which made things easier for our goal shooter Daniels,” he says.

Daniels, with her towering frame, proved a handful for the opposition – she had a conversation rate of 90% at the net and was responsible for all her team’s goals.

The 16 year old stood out like a seasoned professional in front of the goal and used the scoring circle to good effect with her positional play.

Three games into the season, both teams have picked up two wins and one defeat as they make their intentions clear to early league pacesetters Goldhill who are unbeaten after the same number of games.
