Match Report – Melbourne Vixens v Queensland Firebirds (Round 3, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY CARA GLEDHILL
The Queensland Firebirds dished out a ferocious last quarter to take the win against the Melbourne Vixens. The home side led for much of the game, but the Firebirds stayed in close touch before blowing out the margin in the last quarter. While the message from the Vixens coming into the game was to stop the ball in the midcourt before it got to Romelda Aiken, it was the defensive midcourt for the Firebirds who forced the Vixens into uncharacteristic errors. Queensland got off to a strong start with Gabi Simpson taking an early intercept in her battle with Liz Watson.
