Louth dominated the game from the off, thanks to effective teamwork.
They were able to make a smooth progression through the court and deliver the ball accurately to their tall goal shooter, Sam Young.
Shooting was difficult at times, but Young was able to retrieve rebounds to score on the second or third attempt.
East Trans played well around the court but were unable to make their shots count.
Goal attack Abbi Thompson is usually impressive in front of goal, even from distance, but she and her fellow shooter struggled to net in the blustery conditions.
Louth goal defence Pippa Dowse and goalkeeper Danielle Gibbs applied pressure and got the upper hand. They worked hard and communicated well to cut out passes into the circle on many occasions. They also won most of the rebounds on offer.
East Trans stayed positive and never gave up fighting, showing great sportsmanship and teamwork.
But Louth, too strong on the night, bagged the spoils and lie second in Division Four, two points behind leaders Brigg Ladies.
