Best start to season for Hucknall Ladies

Jubilant HUCKNALL LADIES made their most successful start to a British Water Polo League season when winning their opening two games.

Playing in Division Three, Hucknall defeated Plymouth side Devonport Royal 9-3 thanks to hat-tricks from Helen Reader and Vicki Taylor and other goals from Jemma Senczyszyn (2) and Kiyoko Naish.

And then a structured game-plan resulted in a 17-4 rout of Sunderland with Cara Dunsbee netting five and Rachael Endy four. Cass Mercer, Lynsey Wilson and Laura Woodfield were also on target, while Ripley Fidler shone in goal.

The results reflect how team has developed in skill and enthusiasm.
