IT was a point-scoring start for Sarah Grady in the wheelchair basketball but she couldn’t stop TeamGB slipping to a 62-35 loss against the Netherlands.

Stretham’s Sarah, 28, got herself on the scoresheet as GB opened the basketball tournament in Group A at the Paralympic Games in London.

Despite a strong opening quarter however, GB were eased out of it by their opponents who opened a sizeable gap as the game progressed.

GB will be hoping to get back on track when they take on Australia on Friday from 1pm.
