Wasps won their first game of the season on Saturday evening, as they defeated Severn Stars 54-45 in their opening home game of the 2022 season.

The game marked a return to the Black and Gold’s spiritual home, as Wasps played their first game at Coventry Building Society Arena in two years.

Wasps bounced back from two defeats during the opening weekend in Birmingham to claim a round three victory against Stars, who before the game started were just one place above the hosts in the table.

The game started in a nip and tuck fashion, with Severn Stars just edging the first quarter 10-12.

Wasps picked up their game up in the second quarter to reverse the Stars two goals lead into a two-goal lead of their own 23-21 at half-time.

It was the third quarter, though, where Wasps really pulled away. The home side opening up a nine-goal lead, as they led 42-33 after three quarters.

This was a pleasing change from Wasps’ first two round defeats, where they had let leads slip in the third quarter. Having worked on it in training in the week, it paid off and the third quarter went the Black and Golds way this time.

Wasps held on for the final quarter, keeping their nine-goal lead intact and coming out 54-45 victors in the end.

Wasps’ player of the match was Wing Attack Iona Christian, who put in a fine display feeding balls into the circle for Lucy Parize and Rachel Dunn to score from.

Christian said: “It was a bit of a shock at the start, but we really ground it out right the way till the end. I’m really proud of all the girls to help us get our first win. We had two hard games last weekend, so it was great to bounce back in front of our home crowd finally. We’ve missed playin in front of the fans so much. A big thank you to all of the fans that came out to watch us today.
