Surrey Storm confirm top four place with comfortable win over Team Bath

Surrey Storm secured a place in the semi-finals with a comfortable 66-45 win over Team Bath.

Although Bath went on an early run to stay in the first quarter, Storm quickly took control of the game and excelled in both ends of the court.

Frankie Wells had an outstanding game and picked up her second Player of the Match award of the season.


Surrey Storm started the match with a bang, jumping out to an early lead of three goals before Bath showed their defensive prowess as Jayda Pechova forced a long ball to turn the ball over with her team unable to capitalise.

Bath struggled to transition the ball up the court as all seven Storm players hunted each pass, getting tips to disrupt the flow of Bath's offence.

Despite this, Bath settled after former Storm athlete Sophie Kelly scored before the Bath defence ramped up their energy, and the momentum of the game shifted as they brought the game within two goals.

However, with just three minutes of the first quarter to go, Amy Flanagan darted through to intercept a Bath centre pass, and Sophie Drakford Lewis lost Lily-May Catling in the circle, allowing Storm to extend their lead to four goals.

Storm moved into a 15-goal lead in the second quarter as Bath responded by bringing on the experienced Kadeen Corbin who made an immediate impact as she held off Hannah Knights and Phoebe Maslen fed Betsy Creak.

Despite this, Storm entered half-time leading by 17 and were able to bring on new signing Sienna Rushton who scored from the first centre pass to earn a warm welcome from the crowd at Sports Park Arena.

Sophia Candappa threw a no-look pass to Drakford Lewis, who cut through the circle and found the net.

With Summer Artman on at goal keeper for Team Bath, the Storm's offence took some time to adjust as Bath's defence did a great job of forcing the shooters out and disrupting feeds.

However, there was a momentum shift after Felisitus Kwangwa flew out of the defensive end for a huge tip to Flanagan to turn over the ball.

Rushton found confidence shot after shot, and Storm's transition up the court became easier as they increased their lead to 20 goals.

At the start of the final quarter, Bath got off to a disappointing start as Leah Middleton tipped the ball away from Hannah Passmore.

Despite this, Storm were unable to capitalise on the situation, and the Bath defence was quick to recover.

It was emblematic of the final 15 minutes that saw Bath battle until the end, refusing to give up despite the big deficit.

However, Storm's solid performance ensured that they secured their spot in the top four taking the game 66-45.
