Central Coast Heart Open team have continued with their fine form in the 2020 Origin Premier League Netball Competition with two action packed matches in Round 3.

Up against competition newcomers, South Coast Blaze, the Heart did not disappoint, putting on a commanding performance in the Opens’ contest, to record a huge 71-46 win.

Heart Club Captain, Alicia Walsh, said strong zone defence and some fantastic shooting were key to the Heart’s victory, as has been the case throughout the competition so far.

The result sees the Heart further entrench themselves atop the ladder of Conference B as they work towards another grand finals’ berth.

The Under 23’s also put on a spectacular show, but the Blaze were more able to rise to the Heart’s challenge in a high intensity match that saw the scoreline seesaw several times.

Despite the score being neck and neck right down to the wire, it was not to be for the Heart, with the Blaze netting two last ditch points to edge ahead and take the win 50-48.

The result sees the Under 23’s move to fourth place on their ladder.
