Ammanford Netball Club has started the summer season with a series of great results, having won four out of their first five games.
The latest fixture saw Ammanford take on Tawe B.
With a squad of 10 players, Ammanford found themselves struggling to link passes and score goals in the first quarter as Tawe played a tight disrupting game.
By the end of the quarter, Ammanford found themselves 8-3 behind.
A few changes in the second quarter and the introduction of veteran shooter Wendy Fisher, with Beth Gilbert moved to wing defence, saw the team adopt a more settled approach with Catrin Rees and Emily Janes linking well.
As soon as the ball reached the attacking third, the goals began popping in.
Alison Jones and Gemma McWilliams put pressure on the Tawe shooters and at the end of the quarter, Ammanford had turned things around to lead 14–11.
With Brittany Lewis brought back on in defence and McWilliams moving into the centre, Ammanford found their rhythm as Amy James tore around the court intercepting over and over again to ensure her side maintained their lead.
The last quarter saw Leah Malloney back in the centre position and she fed the ball to Gilbert who in turn looked for mother and daughter shooters, Sian and Wendy Fisher as Ammanford dominated and went to clinch a 24–18 victory.
