Silver it is

Black Widows get Silver

 

19:00 Leeds Spiders Black Widows v Sheffield Steelers

With a place in the final on the line, the Leeds Spiders Black Widows came out firing as they raced to a 13-6 lead within the first 10 minutes of their semi final game against the Sheffield Steelers.

The Steelers, however, staged a stunning comeback in the second quarter – playing their way back to within just two points of their opponents: the Leeds Spiders Black Widows ahead by just 17-15 at half time.

The third quarter saw the Sheffield team level the game with just over a minute played, courtesy of a fantastic shot by Yvonne Waft. The gritty battle continued between the two teams but, in the end, it was the Steelers who entered the final quarter with a single point advantage: 25-24.

 An extremely tense final quarter saw the lead exchange hands numerous times within the opening five minutes; the Leeds Spiders Black Widows, however, then found a way to edge ahead and take their place in the final with a 33-27 victory.

The second quarter saw the two teams settle into the game – both sides hitting double figures as the Leeds Spiders Black Widows closed down upon their opponents’ lead to take a 17-16 advantage into half time.

A stunning third quarter saw the Angels fly up the scoreboard, overcoming the Leeds defence as they raced to a 28-21 lead with just 10 minutes remaining in the game.

The final quarter was another close affair, but the Bell’s Angels of the North 2 held their nerve to take the Division 2 Trophy with a 36-26 triumph.
