Netball: Late Manchester rally denies Celtic Dragons

Celtic Dragons v Manchester Thunder
Celtic Dragons are tenth in the Superleague after their narrow defeat by Manchester

Celtic Dragons came agonisingly close to claiming their second win of the season as they lost 55-53 to Manchester Thunder in the Netball Superleague.

The Welsh team led at the end of the first and second quarters but Thunder's experience told in the later stages.

The scores were tied 51-all with two minutes to play, but Manchester took advantage of a miss shot to take the lead and run the clock down.

Celtic Dragons play Hertfordshire Mavericks on Monday, 1 May.
