Severn Stars win big against Surrey Storm

Surrey Storm suffered a 39-46 defeat against league rivals Severn Stars at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Both sides were searching for their third win of the season, and it was the tenth-placed side who overcame ninth-placed Storm to move above them in the VNSL standings.

Storm have found themselves locked in some tight encounters this week, and this clash started no different as there was little to separate the sides in the first quarter.

The score line was 11-12 to Stars after the opening 12 minutes, and the second quarter was no less tense as both sides struggled to limit their error count across the court.

Storm displayed promising moments but couldn’t quite develop their best rhythm in this first half, and Stars eventually capitalised by opening up a healthy lead ahead of the half-time break.

Karyn Bailey’s accurate shooting managed to keep Storm within touching distance of their opponents, but Stars entered the interval with a 20-24 advantage.

Stars extended their lead to six immediately after the break, but Storm did show signs of a comeback as some strong defending from Leah Middleton and Alima Priest allowed the designated hosts to close the margin to two.

However, Stars then quashed Storm’s growing momentum by restricting their freedom in attacking areas, and this helped them take a 31-35 lead into the final quarter.

Storm kept pace with Stars by closing the margin to two goals on numerous occasions in the final quarter, but they couldn’t quite take the next step which would have seen them bring the score level.

Stars then increased the margin of their lead in the closing moments as Storm pushed further forward in attack, and this saw the visitors seal a precious 39-46 victory in London.
