22:23, May 18 2014

Smog Bayleys continued their great start to the Marlborough premier netball season, breezing past Pelorus Speight's Ale House 77-24 at Horton Park on Saturday.

In the only premier match played over the weekend, Smog made an easy transition to the outdoor courts, outscoring their opponents in every quarter. Smog kept their foot on the pedal to the end, winning the fourth quarter 23-3 to notch up their fourth straight victory.

Smog's shooters were again dominant, with Cara Wiapo scoring 46 goals from 56 attempts, while Rayna Olsen netted 31 from 39 attempts.

Meanwhile, Tokomaru Crafar Crouch will face a stern challenge from Harlequins Fairweathers when the remainder of round four games take place at Marlborough Lines Stadium tomorrow night.

Tokomaru have been building momentum since their first round loss to Marlborough Girls' College Scaffold Marlborough, recording two wins from the past two rounds.

While Harlequins are yet to win a match this season, they came close to an upset over Harlequins Radich Law in round two. They will be intent on improving their win/loss record and are sure to create some headaches for the Picton-based side. The game kicks off at 7.30pm.

In other matches, Harlequins Radich Law also have a tough assignment against MGC in the first game of the night at 6pm. Harlequins looked comfortable during their 55-36 win over Pelorus last week, but the talented college side will be intent on ending Harlequins unbeaten start to the season.

Central ANZ Men will go in as hot favourites in their match against the Wairau Jetz at 6.30pm.
