Paige Reed shoots under pressure from Towera Vinkhumbo

Leeds Rhinos charged to victory with a 49-45 victory over Strathclyde Sirens at the Allam Sport Centre in Hull.

In a sometimes scrappy game, which saw both teams hold narrow leads for periods in the game, it was the Rhinos who dug deep in the final quarter to earn a memorable win.

Rhinos made a great start to the game and their defensive unit instantly turned over the first centre pass of the game, however they were unable to make the most of this and soon handed possession back to the visitors.

Vicki Oyesola stepped up to make sure Sirens were unable to get to goal with a high intercept which allowed Ellie Bird to put the first goal through the net two minutes into the fixture.

The hosts pulled away to a four goal lead when Nia Jones found Bird under the post again to make it 8-4.

Oyesola then came out victorious on a Sirens rebound which allowed the home side to put a six-goal lead on the board.

Rhinos were looking in control, but they allowed Sirens back into the game and the visitors managed to reduce the gap to just two thanks to an intercept from Towera Vinkhumbo with just ten seconds left on the clock of quarter one to bring the score to 15-13.

The home side almost mirrored the start from the first quarter by turning over Sirens first centre pass and again they started to build a lead. Bird held strong under the post after a couple of minutes of no goals from either side to make it 18-14.

The ball switched between both sides before Sirens started a comeback, eventually tying up the scores at 23 all. Leeds nudged ahead again but it was give and take throughout and Sirens levelled again as the clock ran down.

Rhinos responded with another goal to give them back the one goal advantage. With 20 seconds left on the clock the Rhinos took their centre pass, time denied both sides of one more goal before the half time break, 25-24.

Sirens levelled the game at the start of the third quarter and the game then went goal for goal remaining level for around three minutes.

The visitors took the lead by one but a tenacious Oyesola took another intercept allowing her side to regain the lead 31-30.

Rhinos then created a three goal lead but Sirens quickly levelled it back up with 20 seconds left remaining on the clock. An obstruction call left just enough time for Paige Reed to put one more through the net before the third break 39-38.

The final 15 started by going goal for goal with a one goal lead switching between both sides.

Rhinos pulled out to a three goal lead but Sirens were fast to reduce this and it was the visiting side with the advantage with just five minutes on the clock.

An attacking contact from Sirens and a rebound from Oyesola saw the Rhinos grow in confidence and take the next three goals.

The home crowd erupted as Bird put one final shot through the net with just a second remaining to secure a 49-45 win.

Vicki Oyesola very deservingly picked up the player of the match award after a tenacious and successful performance.
