Out of the 12 teams, Surrey Storm just missed out on the final by goal difference and so played Manchester Thunder in the decide 3rd and 4th place decider.
It was a very close match, with both teams constantly scoring and conceding goals in their determination to take home the bronze.
With the clock ticking down, Surrey Storm took back the lead with a goal in the final seconds, bringing the score to 24-23 and bagging the bronze medal.
All the girls played great under pressure but held their nerve. Deni said, "Its been such a great experience and I have loved every minute of it!"
The 2019 National School Games featured over 1,000 young athletes across 11 different able-bodied and disability sports.
