Strathclyde Sirens on song in win over Severn Stars

Action shot during the Vitality Super League match between Severn Stars and Strathclyde Sirens at Copper Box Arena, London, England on 25th April 2021.

Severn Stars faced Strathclyde Sirens for their Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) Round 12 fixture and it was the Scottish side who managed to secure a 37-45 victory in London.

Although Stars lost to Sirens the first time they faced each other this season, Stars took to the court with high hopes. Severn Stars were optimistic that the return of previously injured captain Liana Leota and new signing Kyra Jones both being part of the gameday squad would help them take the win. However, a strong performance from Sirens' young shooter Emma Barrie helped the Scottish side take the win..

Liana Leota started at wing attack for Stars and quickly combined with the stars attacking line up of Paige Reed and Georgia Rowe. An intercept from Vinkhumbo for Sirens on the front ball was rewarded with sharp shooting by Emma Barrie. This was followed by a penalty shot miss from Reed under the post, where again Barrie as able to score for Sirens. The first quarter finished 11-8 to Sirens.

New signing Jones entered the court for Stars at the start of the second quarter at centre. Sirens started this quarter with great purpose whereas Stars struggled to convert their centre passes. Strong holds by Barrie saw the Sirens scoreline rocket to 16 before a response from Stars. Sirens form continued throughout the second quarter which finished 24-16 to them. A defensive line up change, helped Stars battle through the third quarter, which finished in a 10-10 quarter score.

In the fourth quarter, Severn Stars continued to build. With the difference cut to six goals, stars were able to find an intercept but footwork error which Sirens were quickly able to score from signalled the end of any hope of a stars late comeback. Sirens were able to extends their lead to 10.

However, a blocked shot from Stars' Dee Bolakoro showed how much spirit the stars team still had. Sirens made a late change at goal keeper and Stars brought on Harris to centre with three minutes left to the game. The last quarter was again a draw at 11-11. Too much damage was done in first half and Siren won the game 37-45. The iPro Hydrate Player of the Match was awarded Strathclyde Sirens shooter, Emma Barrie.

After the game stars Head Coach Melissa Bessell said she was 'not completely pleased with the performance, we need to address our start, we are so much better than that so it’s really frustrating'.
