Strathclyde Sirens share the points with Wasps

Gia Abernethy of Strathclyde Sirens during the Vitality Super League match between Leeds Rhinos and Strathclyde Sirens at Studio 001, Wakefield, England on 15th March 2021.

Following last week’s defeat against Leeds Rhinos Netball, Strathclyde Sirens came out fighting against Wasps in Round 7 of the Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) 2021 season.

Sirens had a very clinical and focused start to the game, playing with patience to the circle edge. Pressure from Emily Nicholl, Taylor Cullen and Vinkhumbo allowed Sirens to intercept plenty of ball.

Nerves, however, from the shooters at the post meant that Sirens fell behind by just two points heading into the second quarter.

Wasps settled into the second period of play with Sophia Candappa at the helm of their attacking drive. The side from Coventry edge out to a five-goal lead until Vinkhumbo interrupted their flow to allow Sirens to close the gap back to one.

Sirens continued to win ball defensively, Gia Abernethy and Beth Dix continued to adjust their structures, and Beth Goodwin started to find her feet against Fran Williams. A more settled Sirens side headed in to the second half 16-17.

McCall made an appearance in the third quarter who immediately made an impact in the goal attack position.

Sirens defensive trio continued to shut down Wasps attacking unit, making it difficult to feed Dunn under the post. Capitalising on Wasps errors, Sirens enjoyed a two-goal lead 25-23 heading into Q4.

The fourth quarter was where we saw the intensity reach new heights, Wasps relied on some missed shots by Sirens to turn the game and close the three-goal lead that Sirens worked so hard for.

Davies, Flannagan and Christian made some swaps during play to make an impact for Wasps. With 30 seconds left to go Dunn nails one shot, then the equalizer to level the score line to 32-32, Sirens second draw of the campaign.
