Changes in defence at the break saw a new trio at the back with Kirstin Lamb moving from Goal Defence to Goal Keeper to replace Niamh Symons, Adams came on at Goal Defence, Fenn switching to Wing Defence and Lagor moving back to Centre.

Another strong quarter from the home side sealed all the points and gave Storm their third consecutive victory to remain one of four teams at the top of the table yet to lose a game.

“We were delighted with the performance and result,” said White. “It was great to give everybody a lot of court time and look at some people in different positions whilst still maintaining a high intensity in our play.

“I thought Beth had another good game at Wing Attack and I was pleased with Bryher when she came on for the second and third quarters.”
