Strathclyde Sirens claimed a sixth win of the season with a hard-fought victory away at Celtic Dragons on the penultimate weekend of the season.

Quarter 1

Gia Abernethy took the first centre pass of the Celtic clash at the Sport Wales Arena. Both teams started with patience as the first three minutes went goal-for-goal. Shaquanda Greene-Noel stole the ball from Sirens off their centre pass and Lefébre Rademan finished the passage of play off with a goal to give Dragons the early lead.

Sirens didn't let Dragons lead for long, as Towera Vinkhumbo and Georgia Rowe battle it out with Vinkhumbo victorious as Sirens levelled the scores.

After the defensive pressure ramped up for Sirens, Taylor McKevitt got the tip to give Sirens a run of goals, eventually leading to a five-goal lead with six minutes to go.

Greene-Noel gave her all to keep Dragons within reach of Sirens before Shona O'Dwyer entered the court for Dragons to give Sirens something to think about in defence.

Greene-Noel got the ball back again for Dragons, hoping to give them some momentum as they entered the last minute of the first quarter.

Quarter 2

Emma Barrie went to the bench and Bethan Goodwin stepped into the goal shooter bib to start the second quarter.

Dragons started the quarter with more defensive pressure than the last. Neither team scored in the first two minutes of the second quarter. In the third minute, each team settled and got a goal, but Greene-Noel wanted the win for Dragons in their final home match of the season.

She forced Sirens to place the ball over the back line as they got within one. Greene-Noel got an intercept to get Dragons the chance to go level, but she just fell offside giving Sirens back possession.

Greene-Noel won another ball for Dragons and Rademan threw a long ball into Rowe to get Dragons once again within touching distance of Sirens.

A breaking call on the next centre pass from Dragons gave possession back to Sirens, who then charged ahead and stretched their lead back out to three goals. Annabel Roddy got the defensive rebound for Dragons and the ball streamed down court. Their centre pass followed and they were one goal behind Sirens once again.

Dragons scored off their next centre pass to level the scores in this intense game. Hannah Leighton came through with an intercept to level the scores once again and the whistle blew for half-time.

Quarter 3

Clare Jones entered the court for Dragons at centre to start the second half.

Emily Nicholl got a tip off the Dragons centre pass and Sirens went one goal up with 20 seconds gone on the clock.  Greene-Noel got the next tip and Roddy collected the ball for Dragons to get them back within two goals after Sirens' run of goals.

Vinkhumbo snatched the ball from Rowe to give Sirens possession, but Dragons got the ball back to remain within three of Sirens.

The offensive contact is called against Sirens and Dragons gained possession, allowing them to close the gap and get the score back to two.

It was a battle of the goalkeepers as Vinkhumbo won the ball back again for Sirens who get their two goal lead back. Roddy picked up the ball for Dragons to hopefully gain momentum, but Sirens stole the ball back giving them a five-goal lead going into the final 15 minutes.

Quarter 4

Kelly Boyle entered the court for Sirens at wing attack. Sirens started the quarter off strong by adding more goals to their score.

After a defensive lift from Sirens they got out to an 11-goal lead with 10 minutes to go. Leighton and Laura Rudland entered the court for Dragons to hopefully gain momentum and Greene-Noel got the intercept for her team.

Sirens led by 10 goals with five minutes to go and Dragons gained possession, but they threw the ball over the back line, too far for Rowe to grab.

Dragons made a duo of changes, with Philippa Yarranton entering at goal shooter and Leila Thomas coming to court at goal defence. Two last minute intercepts from Greene-Noel couldn't reduce the score as Sirens came out victorious in the Celtic Clash.
