Storm remain second in the South West League with a 63-41 win.
Storm eased to victory in a potentially difficult game away at Lovell Titans in South West Regional League 3 (South).
The win keeps the Cornish side second in the table on goal average behind leaders Saints who they face next weekend.
Bryher Croker got the nod at starting Wing Attack this week after impressing in the second half of the last game against Vivary.
Unfortunately an injury picked up at a Team Bath Academy Day the day before meant she was unable to continue in the second quarter and was replaced by Beth Fenn.
Storm led 14-7 at this point and a blistering second period which they won 21-11 saw them take a comfortable 35-18 lead into the half time break.
Fern Noott replaced Fenn at Wing Attack for quarter three as the visitors kept up their offence.
With Hannah Cox and Caitlyn Oates working well in the shooting circle and converting turnovers that the defence supplied, Storm stretched their lead further to 51-30.
A solid final period saw Storm take the game 63-41 to remain right on the heels of the league leaders.
Head Coach David White was delighted with the performance; “I think this is one of the best performances we’ve had in a while and I was very pleased with how our defence performed today.
“We’ve been working on certain things and the fact that the defensive unit took them to court so successfully was terrific to see,” he said.
“They were particularly tenacious at centre passes and we turned over a lot of ball through court too, overall a very pleasing performance,” said White.
Storm were playing for the first time in their new Mining Searches UK sponsored match kit. The Mining company, which is based just down the road from the club’s home venue at Carn Brea, has supplied match and off court wear for the next three seasons.
The kit will officially be launched at the final home Regional game before the Christmas break.
Storm remain in second place in the league on goal average with two games of the first half of the season to go.
