Match Report – Sunshine Coast Lightning v Collingwood Magpies (Round 11, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY KATRINA NISSEN
It was a do or die match for both the Sunshine Coast Lightning and the Collingwood Magpies with both teams needing the win to keep their finals’ hopes alive. It was the Lightning who prevailed and withstood a second-half fightback from the star-studded Pies. It was a game of defence with both teams putting on hard, full-court pressure early. The Lightning was the first to reap the rewards of their patient defence as they caused a held ball against Madi Robinson on circle edge. Their transition wasn’t smooth though, as the Magpies were equally smothering in defence.
