Thunder's player of the match Helen Housby, who netted 100% of her shots against the Jets, said after the game: "I am so pleased with that.

"There's always things I can improve, I think today I got a little bit stuck on the baseline so I will look to work on that.

"It is always tough coming to Leeds and credit to the girls for holding on as it would have been easy to step off the gas but we dug deep."
