Team Bath and Celtic Dragons could not be seperated in a re-run of last season's ZEO Superleague final, the teams sharing a thrilling 62-62 stalemate on Friday night.

Both sides managed to eek out three-goal leads in the game at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, but neither side could turn that advantage into a decisive margin and then push on to take all three points.

The two teams were evenly matched throughout the hour, with Team Bath three goals up at 12-9 and then 17-14 in the opening quarter through Rosie Allison's sharpshooting.

Despite the best efforts of Billy Pritchard, who produced four outstanding interceptions in the opening quarter, last year's runners-up continued to find Lottysha Cato with high looping balls and she calmly converted.

Dragons battled back to end the first quarter all-square at 18-18.

The two teams continued to slug it out virtually goal for goal in quarter two. Team Bath took an early advantage, before the visitors went ahead, but they couldn't extend their lead to more than a couple of goals.

Quarter three ended 49-47 to Dragons, with everything to play for and Team Bath looked set to claim the spoils when they carved out a three-goal lead at 53-50 four minutes into the quarter.

However, Dragons refused to give up and Cato's last attempt tied the game at 62-all, with Rosie Allison's late late effort to secure a home win judged to have come just after the buzzer.
