Severn Stars gain first Vitality Super League win before postponement due to Coronavirus

On Saturday, Severn Stars won their first match of the 2020 season after a 59-54 victory over Wasps.

The Stars came from five goals down with 15 minutes to go at the University of Worcestershire.

Head coach, Melissa Bessell said after the game: “Today was epic for us

“I made it clear today it was a win we needed and a win that I wanted. It was neck and neck all the way through and I am super proud of everyone in the last quarter – we won that by 20 goals to 10.”

Severn Stars next game was due to come against Loughborough Lightning next Saturday but has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Vitality Super League board announced yesterday that all games have been postponed imminently.

A meeting is due to take place tomorrow (17th March) to discuss plans further along with government guidelines.

The Stars would have wanted to keep their momentum going after their first win but now it may be some time before they will play again.

Other sports in Britain have been postponed with the Premier League and EFL being suspended until at least April 4th with many expecting it to continue past that date.

Horse Racing will carry on behind closed doors until the end of March due to coronavirus.

The Vitality Super League is due to put out a statement later this week with an update on the postponements.
