Regional winTITANS netballers are on a high after victory over Team Bath at the weekend.England player Jo Binns was on hand to coach Team Bath, but Titans were not put off by their opposition.They came in from the first quarter 11 goals apiece. When Bath had their noses in front 20 - 19 at half-time Titans coach Lorraine Beel made changes to make way for the experience of wing attack Kellie Finney and the debut appearance of 17-year-old new signing of Jodi May from previous club St Austell.The speed of centre Jo Smith and combination of drive from May and Finney made it easier for Titans to get the ball into the attacking circle and they turned the tables to lead 29-28 with 15 minutes remaining. At full speed for the last quarter, they stretched their lead into a 44-40 victory.Titans take on Plymouth Marjon Saints this Saturday at Chulmleigh Community College, start 12.30pm.
