A reflection on her 50th National League netball match, the 2021 SSN Season and inspiration on and off the court.
Amongst the mayhem of interstate travel and rescheduled matches, having a consistent and inspiring teammate goes a long way.
Celebrating her 50th national league match in Round 10 with a win against the West Coast Fever, Mahalia Cassidy reflected with Netball Scoop on the game. “We were obviously disappointed with our game the week before and haven’t had a great track record against the Fever, so it was really cool to come out and execute that performance- probably our best one of the season”.
Cassidy explained to Netball Scoop about the joyful celebrations of this milestone post-match: “Lightning as a club and the team put on some really special celebrations leading up to the game. It was special to be able to share it with Cara [Koenen]. We started off the same pathway and we’ve grown up playing netball together and it was cool to be able to reach 50 games with her and the celebrations afterwards were just emphatic in terms of the team”.
