Unbeaten table-toppers Manchester Thunder prove too strong for battling Blue & Gold in Bank Holiday Vitality Superleague showdown

Team Bath Netball were unable to halt Vitality Superleague leaders Manchester Thunder’s unbeaten run as they slipped to a 66-45 defeat at Belle Vue on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Haines Watts-sponsored visitors were back on court less than 72 hours after Friday’s dramatic last-gasp win over Saracens Mavericks and found themselves 20-12 down to a ruthless Thunder side after the first quarter.

Despite a host of turnovers and deflections from Phumza Maweni and Layla Guscoth, the hosts were able to stretch their lead to 37-22 at half-time. With both teams using their replacements to good effect, an evenly-matched third quarter was tied 14-14 before Thunder saw out their 16th victory of the season from as many games.

Team Bath remain in fourth place, though, after Mavericks were beaten 59-51 by Loughborough Lightning in the day’s other game. Lightning provide the opposition for Team Bath’s next match, taking place live on Sky Sports at 5.30pm on Monday 9th May.

Team Bath Netball is supported by its Principal and Pathway Partner, chartered accountants Haines WattsRengen Developments, who are an overall Team Bath Partner; Centurion Chartered Financial Planners and Ecus Ltd, our environment partner. Team Bath’s suppliers include O’Neills2XUPulseroll and Halo Hydration.
