Match Report – West Coast Fever v Queensland Firebirds (Round 12, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY JENNY SINCLAIR
Queensland Firebirds late charge to the finals continued as they completed a six goal take down of the West Coast Fever on Saturday night. The Firebirds winning record at the Perth Arena stayed intact as they nullified the crowd and a slow start to overpower the ladder leaders. While the Fever took an early lead that crept out to six goals at one point, they were unable to maintain their intensity across the whole sixty minute game. In contrast the Firebirds are battle hardened, appearing in four of the last five grand finals. With five seasoned campaigners on court, they had the physical and mental edge to push through until the final siren.
