Team Bath sports logoTeam Bath are through to Showdown Weekend – the climax of this season’s Fiat Netball Super League – after beating Celtic Dragons 52-50 in last night's play-off at University of Bath Sports Training Village.

Roared on by their supporters the home team made a stunning start to the must-win fixture, leading 6-0 before closing out the opening quarter 16-9.

At half-time Bath led 28-19.

At three-quarter time the blue and golds had created a big buffer at 44-29 but valiant Dragons fought back to push the home side to the wire.

The win for Team Bath - coached by Jess Garland - means they will now play a semi-final against Surrey Storm on Saturday in Dagenham with a place in the grand final at stake.
