A VENOMOUS Viper attacking line-up put paid to Royston Ladies' hopes of getting anything out of this game.

Royston began strongly in the first quarter, which ended eight points apiece, but the second quarter saw a shift in balance.

Despite some excellent defending from Huttlestone, Moxham and Pinner, the home team went in 18-13 down at half time.

The third quarter saw some changes in the Royston attacking line with Pledger and Williams coming on but despite some decent shooting efforts by the home team the Vipers pulled away.

They increased their lead by eight points and led 33-20 at the end of the third.

Royston had a stronger fourth quarter but were still unable to claw back the lead and although this performance was superior to the last one Royston put on against the Vipers, they were still unable to get the win.

Team: Winser, Stimson, Rooney, Hume, Pledger, Williams, Huttlestone, Pinner, Moxham, White.
