Wasps return to winning ways against Surrey Storm

The first quarter of Wasps vs Surrey Storm in round four of the Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) saw a slow start from Wasps with Storm going 2-0 up.

Once Wasps found their composure and thanks to some strong defensive play from Josie Huckle and Fran Williams, the women in black and gold started to contain the Storm attack. A fairly evenly-matched first quarter saw Wasps edging ahead at the break 11-8.

Wasps held the lead for quarter two despite struggling to make a number of connections upfront. A change due to injury saw Rachel Dunn leave the court to be replaced by Jamaican international Gezelle Allison.

Held courtside before being allowed on meant Wasps were briefly down to six players, leaving Katie Harris to score the point. The score at half-time was 26-17 to Wasps.

Wasps made a number of changes at half-time bringing on Ella Powell-Davies for captain Sophia Candappa, allowing Mel Mansfield to test out some new combinations.

The changes seemed to unsettle Storm who lost balance and struggled to adjust. Storm’s ability within the shooting circle kept them in the game but Wasps retained a 10 point lead at the end of the third quarter.

In the final quarter, Wasps increased their lead with Player of the Match, Iona Christian, delivering the ball down the court with ferocity, with her work rate unmatched at times. A tiring Storm were unable to contain the home side and Wasps pressed further ahead.

With a win almost guaranteed, Wasps took the opportunity to bring on Ally Housley who became the 29th player to make her debut for Wasps. The final score was Wasps 46-33 Storm.

Mizuno Player of the Match: Iona Christian (Wasps).
