Netball Superleague: Surrey Storm edge Celtic Dragons game

Rachel Dunn scores against Celtic Dragons

League leaders Surrey Storm recovered from going down to six players to score late and beat Celtic Dragons 63-62.

Storm led by two at the break but the Dragons turned it around to take the same advantage in the third quarter.

With a minute left on the clock, and the scores level, Storm goalkeeper Alex Sinclair was sin-binned for persistent defensive errors under the posts.

But a Surrey interception was fed to Rachel Dunn and the England shooter kept her cool to net the winner.

It means Storm keep their unbeaten record and lead the Superleague table by four points after round 11, having already done enough to reach the semi-finals.

The Dragons are fifth in the table, three points off Hertfordshire Mavericks, who occupy the final play-off place.

Round 12 games start on Thursday, with Team Bath hosting Yorkshire Jets.

On Saturday, Hertfordshire Mavericks welcome Team Northumbria, Celtic Dragons travel to Manchester Thunder while Loughborough welcome Surrey.
