England win netball gold at Commonwealth Games

Helen Housby held her nerve in the final second to score the winning goal as the England netball team upset favourites Australia 52-51 to clinch a dramatic gold medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games yesterday.

England, who were playing in their first Commonwealth Games final, sneaked into the gold-medal decider at Coomera Indoor Centre when Jo Harten sank the winning goal with two seconds left in Saturday's semi-final with Jamaica.

The Jamaicans won the bronze yesterday when they beat two-time champions New Zealand 60-55. - REUTERS
