Both Magpies Netball and the Melbourne Vixens were holding a lot of expectations coming into the Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup Final. Vixens were riding the wave of three consecutive, and convincing wins. Magpies were out to prove that they could produce when it counts. Magpies got off to a blistering start, sinking three unanswered goals. Shooter and game MVP, Shimona Nelson, continued to show how much she has improved in the off-season when taking the balls high and strong. Her footwork and understanding of how to work the circle also showed in the way she opened up the front space.
