Priors A maintained their 100 per cent record in West 
Suffolk Netball League 
Division One, but still trail Moreton A by four points.

Lisa Dolby and Julie Brind helped the defending champions — who have a game in hand over Moreton — see off Burwell 25-19, but Moreton’s 42-39 success over Jetts A — courtesy of star performances by Olivia Peters and Leanne Peters — was enough to maintain the gap.

Thetford A rose to fourth as Charlotte Olley and Julie Amys helped them to see off bottom-club Priors B 50-46,

The score was reduced to 27-21 by the end of the third quarter, but Moreton held on, despite the best efforts of Lisa Baldry, Mimi Black and Ellie Morse in defence.
