After a long journey to Leeds, Mavericks expected a tough match from Yorkshire Jets who were looking for their first win of the season.
Mavericks had a slow start and lacked a little bit of discipline allowing Jets to edge the first quarter 13-10.
A solid second quarter performance, saw the defence connect well with the attack enabling the away side to take the lead 23-22.
The Mavericks’ half-time talk focused on taking control and taking personal responsibility for errors.
The players responded well with some fantastic shooting by Trinidad & Tobago international Sammy Wallace and teenage ace George Fisher enabling Mavericks to stretch the lead to 36-31.
The fourth quarter saw Mavericks finally show some of their best netball of the day with the ball coming from the back through court to the shooters beautifully.
Mavericks in the end were just too strong for the Jets side to handle taking a convincing win 51-38.
This Saturday Mavericks host Manchester Thunder in a top of the table clash at Herts Sports Village.
