Match Report – Sunshine Coast Lightning v West Coast Fever (Round 3, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY KATRINA NISSEN
The Suncorp Super Netball catch-phrase “It’s all on the line” has never been more poignant than it was when the Sunshine Coast Lightning hosted the West Coast Fever. Both teams headed into Round 3 with something to prove – the Lightning that they are still a formidable team capable of taking the 2018 title, and Fever that they can win on the road. Earlier in the week, Fever juggernaut Jhaniele Fowler proclaimed that no one could stop her. The sentiment was reverberated by Australian Diamond’s legend, Liz Ellis, who advised the only way to stop the power-house was to ‘cut off her supply’. The Lightning seemed to have heeded the advice, as they started the game with stifling defence.
