[size=1.25em]Australia edged England 49-48 with one of the last shots of the game to secure a second straight netball win at the Commonwealth Games on Saturday night.

[size=1.25em]England surged to a 16-10 lead in the first quarter, before Australia pulled it back to trail by just one after a 16-point second period.

[size=1.25em]The English then reasserted themselves with a 12-10 third quarter to lead by three heading into the final stanza.

[size=1.25em]But a physical encounter tightened up remarkably as Australia drew level at 42-42, before both sides traded six more goals.

[size=1.25em]Australia's Laura Geitz gave away a penalty shot late on in the final minute, only for Rachel Dunn to miss the clutch shot.

[size=1.25em]The Diamonds then raced up the other end of the court for Caitlin Bassett to slot home what proved to be the winning goal with 10 seconds to spare.

[size=1.25em]A heartbroken England could not recycle the ball quick enough to conjure up a meaningful shot on goal as the final siren went.

[size=1.25em]Bassett top-scored for Australia with 36 goals from 41 attempts, while Natalie Medhurst chimed in with 11 goals.

[size=1.25em]Joanne Harten had a slightly lower percentage than she would have liked, slotting 29 goals from 37 attempts for England.
