Storm come from behind to win at home after a great final quarter gives them victory over high flying Hovelands.
Storm confirmed safety in South West Regional 3 (South) with a hard-fought win over Somerset side Hovelands.
Trailing for three quarters of the game, the home side put in an incredible last period to turn the game on its head.
With Niamh Symons and Rebecca Thompson missing from the defence it was a new look circle that started the game with Phoebe Lagor and Bryher Croker, fresh from playing for Team Bath U17s, alongside each other for the first time.
Rosie Roberts, Rosie Glover and Paula Malson made up the mid court with Hannah Cox and Kirstie Worth starting in the shooting circle.
The game was tight throughout with the visitors just edging the lead on the scoreboard.
Keira Green came on at Goal Keeper at half time with Lagor moving to Goal Defence and Croker to Wing Defence.
Storm pulled back three goals of a six goal deficit in the third quarter to leave the game finely balanced at 34-31 to the visitors going into the last.
Jemma Hamilton replacing Glover at Centre for the final period put in a performance that earned her Player of the Match as Storm powered to an 18-6 period win to take the game 49-40.
The result, along with Tone’s defeat to Trident means Storm are safe in Regional League 3 (South) for another season. “I’m delighted with the win obviously,” said Storm Head Coach David White, “But the way the girls hung on and pulled out an amazing final quarter was very pleasing.”
Storm now face league leaders Tor Knights in Street next Sunday.
