Oaklands Wolves wrote yet another chapter in their history on Saturday when they completed a thrilling 73-72 overtime victory at Cardiff Met Archers.

Just a week after winning consecutive WBBL games for the first time, coach Lee Ryan and his players have now set a new benchmark.

It marches them above their Welsh hosts and firmly into play-off contention.

The game looked like it had slipped away from Wolves, but a huge triple at the end of regulation by Lizzy Harrison eventually saved the day for the visitors.

Ryan said: “To win in overtime is always special and it shows how tight the contest was throughout.

“It was a slow first half by our recent standards, but a brilliant response at the break by the players and in truth we should have taken the game in regulation.

“It’s always a difficult place to play, I’m just pleased we got out with the result and it keeps our win streak alive.”

Kristina Nagy top scored for Wolves with 17 points.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
