MATCH REPORT: Norton Harlequins 31, Millfield 45
Norton Harlequins put in a solid performance after a slow start to restrict table-topping Millfield to a 14-goal victory.
A nervous Quins side took a while to settle, which left the door open for Millfield to score six early goals before eventually finishing the quarter 14-5 ahead.
Quins began the second quarter with more energy as the defence of Mitchell and Myers stepped up their play and made several interceptions to rattle their opponents.

Shooters Holliwell and Coles also found their form as Quins maintained the nine-point gap, trailing 23-14 at half-time.
A change to the Quins line-up increased the pace of the gap as great drives from Grant and Bartlett got the ball quickly to the shooters, but Millfield increased their lead to 35-23.
The Quins team gelled well in the final quarter and the defence kept their cool to limit Millfield's scoring.
Mitchell and Coles shared Norton's player of the match award.
