NETBALL: The Frenchville Vipers have continued their impressive start to the Rockhampton Leagues Club Senior A division season with a 55-35 win over Bluebirds Eagles.

The new-look Vipers team made it back-to-back wins with new Frenchville recruit Emily Scott again proving a handful through the centre court.

Vipers held a 14-9 lead at quarter time and extended that to nine goals at half-time. A 17-10 third quarter from Vipers further extended their lead to leave the Eagles still chasing their first win of the season.

Frenchville Brumbies posted their first win of the season in a thrilling contest against Colts Divas.

The two teams were locked at 27-all at half-time, with Brumbies' goal shooter Laura Horsman slotting 18 goals.

Brumbies then outscored Colts 15-12 in the third quarter, which was the difference in the final scoreline (52-49) after it was 10-all in the final quarter.

Brumbies welcomed the return of Capricorn Claws goal keeper Abbie Buchholz, who was named the team's best on court at goal keeper.

A young Brothers Fuchsia team continues to impress early in the season after a strong 57-40 win over Bluebirds Hawks.

Scores were locked at 13-all at quarter time before Hawks held a one-goal lead at half-time. Fuchsia then controlled the second half, outscoring Hawks 15-9 in the third quarter and 18-6 in the final quarter.

Fuchsia's Maggie Gabriel had a big second half, scoring 22 of the team's 33 goals.

Fuchsia was without Brittany McHugh who suffered whiplash playing for the Claws on the weekend, while centre Emily Bleney and goal keeper Lily Bartlem backed up from respective Claws under-19 and open duties.

Ellie Nasser also provided plenty of run fresh from Capricornia schoolgirls basketball duties.
