Manchester Thunder 68 Loughborough Lightning 52
Loughborough Lightning are enjoying their best season for years. Manchester Thunder won a pulsating tie against Loughborough Lighting to record their sixth win on the bounce.. Thunder were facing the Superleague's surprise package who will – especially on this performance - still have hopes of making the semi-finals this season.
It wasn't the prettiest of games and Loughborough matched Thunder at certain points in the match but the home side ground out the win to remain top of the table. It was a rapid first five minutes to the game, but Thunder managed to edge it after capitalising on an athletic intercept from Sara Bayman.
But Lightning's new signing Peace Proscovia continued her fine form so far this season and kept the Leicestershire side in touch. CLICK HERE for the full Match Report
