Net gain for Oaksway

OAKSWAY’S netballers moved a step closer to Premier League safety with a resounding 48-39 defeat of Hucclecote.

The victory takes the Hartlepool girls six points clear of the relegation play-off zone with just three games of the regular season left to play.

It was a “must win” given the ever-increasing possibility of them being sucked into a relegation battle.
