DEESIDE U14s moved to within one win away from securing the Greater Manchester Junior League Division 2 title after seeing off Tyldesley Tornadoes on Sunday, March 17.

An impressive display from the Flintshire side helped them to a comfortable 79-21 success which maintains their perfect record so far this season.

Deeside will now face Rivington, who also have four wins from four, in a crunch winner-takes-all clash on March 31 to decide which team claims the title.

There were also positive results for Deeside representative sides in the Aura Junior Netball League, where the U14 DJs and Dominoes both came out on top in tight matches.

Deeside DJs recovered from 11-10 and 17-13 down to eventually win 20-18 against an U13 Boughton Belles Bears team playing a year above.

The result maintains the DJ’s unbeaten run this season, but second-placed Deeside Dominoes kept up the pressure behind them with a hard-fought 21-15 victory over North Dragons Burners.

A win for the Deeside Diamonds would have put them second in the U13 division but they were unable to capitalise as they fell to a 28-11 defeat to second-placed Rhosnesni Rooks.

Elsewhere in the U13’s league, Deeside Doves stretched the gap between them and Mold to 11 points after a 16-10 success over the Hawks.

Niamh Lonergan starred for Deeside Dace U12 as she helped her team to a 17-6 win over the Mold Toucans, while the Dragonflies were equally comfortable in their 30-2 victory over Wrexham Emeralds.

Deeside Dots U11 claimed an 8-4 win over North Dragons, with Hannah Slack picking up the player of the match award, but it was a more difficult game for Deeside Dimples.

The U9 team found it tough against Rhosnesni, who ran away with a 13-0 victory to keep them sitting second, just two points behind top team Ellesmere Port Rockets.
