Netball London Live Throwback – 2015
2015: Surrey Storm 55-42 Hertfordshire Mavericks
More than 6,000 netball fans packed into the Copper Box Arena for London Live part 2 in March 2015, setting yet another domestic attendance record with a sell out crowd.
A finely poised 1st half saw neither side able to break away from the other, with goal for goal periods resulting in a half time stalemate.
Fans’ favourite Mikki Austin came off the bench during the interval to inject some grit into the battle on court and it was her arrival that proved pivotal in pushing Storm to a 5 goal lead after 3 quarters.
Mavericks piled on the pressure late in the game but Storm’s defensive pairing of Hannah Reid and Katie Holland provided multiple turnover opportunities for the shooters to finish, securing Storm a hat-trick of London Live victories with a 13 goal triumph.
Storm went on to return to the Copper Box just a few months later to lift their first ever Superleague trophy following an incredible season.
