ENGLAND shooter Louisa Brownfield was in unbelievable form for Mavericks at the weekend as she scored 38 goals from 39 attempts in the win over Leeds Carnegie.

The international played in her first match for the Hatfield-based club since the World Championships in November and showed her class by recording an incredible 97 per cent strike rate.

Earlier in the season Leeds had beaten Mavericks by two points but the Hatfield side this time grabbed their revenge in style.

Mavericks powered to victory in Leeds by 62-38 to stay in the fourth play-off spot.

Brownfield alongside her Mavericks team-mates, including fellow England stars Karen Atkinson, Clare Elsley and Naomi Siddall, simple overran their opponents.

The pace and power of the team from Hertfordshire was too much for Leeds to handle.

Carnegie, including Tracey Neville, the sister of England footballers Gary and Phil Neville, were still in it at the first interval.

However, by half-time Mavericks had pulled clear and they were 29-22 in front.

The third quarter saw the visitors extend their dominance to 44-34 before running away with the match in the final quarter to triumph 62-38.

Brownfield dominated the scoring chart on the day as she singlehandedly matched the opponents' tally.

Further goals from Michelle Hall, with five out of eight, and Monique Wood, 19 out of 25, guided Mavericks to victory.

Next up for Mavericks is Celtic Dragons at the Hertfordshire Sports Village in Hatfield on Saturday.
