Bottom side Barking are still looking for their first win in the South after being put to the sword by a strong Itchen outfit in week 7.

Fatmata Janneh did her utmost to get her visiting side their first W with a monster 37 points, but it was the collective effort of Itchen’s Anna Nevison (29) Faye Endean (26) Erin Caldwell (19) that kept them at bay.

The American School in London endured a tough day on the road at second-placed Oaklands, who were rampant on home soil.
