Surrey Storm were unable to complete a weekend double of victories as they were beaten 54-40 by Saracens Mavericks on Sunday.

Despite an impressive display from Karyn Bailey, fatigue slowly crept into the Storm attack after beating London Pulse yesterday, while the fresh Mavericks piled on the pressure.

Kat Ratnapala's side started the game strongly with captain Sasha Corbin and her sister Kadeen leading the charge in attack.

Sophie Kelly and Bailey continued to link up strongly in the Storm attack but it was Saracens that led 13-10 at the end of the first quarter.

The Hertfordshire-club took control of the match in the second quarter as they pulled away to a 19-12 lead.

Storm made a substitution as Zimbabwe Captain Felisitus Kwangwa replaced Leah Middleton.

However, Mavericks continued to impress in attack as they pulled away to a double-digit lead of 29-17 at the halftime interval.

Frankie Wells substituted into the game in the second half to replace Kelly and she quickly made a mark in the third quarter as Storm reduced the Mavericks lead back to single-digits.

Bailey then made way for Ellie Kelk allowing for a short two-minute rest before she returned to the action.

Both sides continued to convert as the lead was maintained at nine goals throughout the third quarter and Mavericks headed into the final quarter with a 39-30 advantage.

Saracens once again pulled away from Storm in the fourth quarter and regained their 12-goal lead.

This left Surrey Storm with too much to do in the closing minutes as Mavericks secured the win in their opening match.
