After beating Strathclyde Sirens 39-33 in their opening match, Team Bath found themselves six points adrift going into the final quarter of their second game against host club Lightning.
However, they showed great spirit to get back level before two goals in the final minute secured a 39-37 win and overall victory in the tournament.
