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
