Match report – Melbourne Vixens v Giants (Round 12, 2018, Suncorp Super Netball)
BY CARA GLEDHILL
The Melbourne Vixens’ loss at home to the Giants makes their Suncorp Super Netball finals quest difficult. While the game was eventually a very close one, intense defence from the Giants in the first two quarters broke down lines of attack for the Vixens and this was to be their undoing. The Giants let the Vixens well and truly back in for the third quarter to set up a thrilling finish. With five teams still well and truly in the finals race, this game promised to come down to the wire with both teams desperate to cement their place in the finals. With Emily Mannix still out injured, Kadie-Ann Dehaney was again given the goal keeper bib to start the game and she started in style with a masterful tip on a feed into the Giants circle.
