Match Report – West Coast Fever v Melbourne Vixens (Round 13, 2018, Suncorp Super Netball)
BY JENNY SINCLAIR
The equation was simple. West Coast Fever had to beat the Melbourne Vixens to stay in the race for top place and a home final. The Vixens had to beat the Fever just to stay in the top four. With memories of a subpar outing last time the teams met, West Coast Fever laid down their best performance of the season. It was an energetic, hustling, gutsy effort that didn’t let the Vixens into the contest. Fever’s throughout court defence was stifling, limiting both Liz Watson’s and Tegan Philip’s impact. The voice and passion of a huge home crowd added to the electric atmosphere, lifting the home team to a thirteen goal win and a finals appearance.
