1/4 time: Giants 13-8
Vixens are still in this game thanks to some good gains in defence and some poor shooting from Giants. But even so, 8 goals in a quarter is not going to win games, so Vixens need to find something extra.Ian HarkinModeratorMay 23, 2021 at 3:51 pmPost count: 20970
Sophie Dwyer must be 19 going on 25. Totally unruffled, no apparent nerves, having a blinder. Giants 25-18al_exParticipantMay 23, 2021 at 3:54 pmPost count: 1198
Sophie Dwyer might end up being one of the best Australian shooters ever. Tutaia-esque at times.al_exParticipantMay 23, 2021 at 4:00 pmPost count: 1198
Jo Harten has been off today, both in terms of shooting and decision-making. Some strange decisions. Dwyer doesn’t look like missing at all though, and Hay and Price are as consistent as ever. Brandley in everything.
Vixens are fighting hard but it’s just such an uphill battle. Where is Dehaney?Ian HarkinModeratorMay 23, 2021 at 4:03 pmPost count: 20970
1/2 time: Giants 32-26
Vixens came back hard in that Q, but Giants still won it by 1. At this stage, Giants have just 7 turnovers and 5 of them belong to Price. Sophie Dwyer is just outstanding and April Brandley is having another stormer of a game!Ian HarkinModeratorMay 23, 2021 at 4:20 pmPost count: 20970
We’re seeing great hands over defence down court from Vixens and a few silly passes from Giants has allowed their opponents back into this game. You feel like Giants should be further ahead but Vixens are really taking it up to them. Giants 38-32JRParticipantMay 23, 2021 at 4:23 pmPost count: 1674
Vixens have scored the last three goals and they’re now within three – 38-35.JRParticipantMay 23, 2021 at 4:28 pmPost count: 1674
‘for those at home that was a pass’….ha ha….amyrmyParticipantMay 23, 2021 at 4:31 pmPost count: 59
Stanton still very inaccurate but I think all other aspects of her game are looking much better – if she can get some shots to drop would be good. Mundy also looking a lot better today!
BUT Sophie Dwyer.. I mean, she is an absolute weapon! Love herIan HarkinModeratorMay 23, 2021 at 4:35 pmPost count: 20970
3/4 time: Giants 49-42
This is a strange game. I feel like Giants are almost coasting through it, confident they’re going to win. Seriously, Vixens threw absolutely everything at Giants in that Q and still didn’t win it, thanks to 5 super shots to 1!JRParticipantMay 23, 2021 at 4:35 pmPost count: 1674
Oh Vixens got within 1, but at 3/4 time Giants lead by 7 ….49-42.
Giants have 8 Super shots (from 12 attempts)…Ian HarkinModeratorMay 23, 2021 at 4:43 pmPost count: 20970
Well done to Maddie Hay, the invisible woman. She just quietly goes about her business racking up the feeds and assists with little or no fuss or fanfare and you could be forgiven for not knowing she’s even out there! Giants up 57-47.al_exParticipantMay 23, 2021 at 4:55 pmPost count: 1198
If the Giants shoot like that it’s hard not to see them winning the whole thing. They’re looking at about ten extra goals a game. I have no idea how they’re going to fit Austin back in next year when Dwyer is playing this well.
Maddie Hay is so underrated. Harten and Price were so inconsistent today but she really kept the team rolling on.
Fitzgerald has really been vindicated in her decisions re CBass. Dwyer wouldn’t even have gotten a contract if Bassett was preferred.
Mundy was great this week. Hopefully she can push on from here.
