The red and blue side hit the court on fire, quickly opening up a 8-0 lead courtesy of a fine defensive performance and some clinical shooting. Once Turnford finally got on the board Oldham continue the pressure to stretch to an 18-6 lead at quarter time.
Coach Debbie Hallas took the opportunity to rotate her squad and give valuable court time to all members of the squad, with Amy Neild and Abby Tyrrell taking to the court. The changes did little to halt the away sides flow and they moved into 35-14 lead at the half.
More changes followed which slowed Oldham down but they were never looking likely to lose with the shooting accuracy in top form.
Turnford had a better second half but Oldham were too good and too far out of sight to catch up with any real significance, even with more changes for the final quarter.
All players got quality court time and Hallas was rightly happy "We got off to a flyer which gave me a great opportunity to ensure all the players had good game time early into our season. Turnford selected Amy Clinton as the player of the match and I couldn’t agree more. She was consistent and was splitting well inside the circle. Next Sunday should provide us with tough opposition when we face The Downs of Surrey.”
