Match Report – West Coast Fever v NSW Swifts (Round 4, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY JENNY SINCLAIR
A Courtney Bruce deflection in the first 30 seconds of the match starting set the tone of the match, with Fever’s full court defence smothering the Swifts. In the first quarter the home team were able to pick off nine intercepts, but errant passing resulting in the same number of turnovers kept their lead from blowing out. After that initial burst of adrenalin the Fever settled, producing just nine more turnovers in the following three quarters of the game. One of the most remarkable aspects of the match was the speed with which the entire Fever seven transitioned into both attack and defence.
