Match Report – Adelaide Thunderbirds v NSW Swifts (Round 14, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY EMMALIE BALNAVES-GALE
The NSW Swifts put the nail in the coffin of what was a tough season for the Adelaide Thunderbirds when they came to town for the final round of Suncorp Super Netball for 2018. In front of a packed out Priceline Stadium, the Thunderbirds saw their final shot at securing a win in their 2018 season disappear quickly. In the opening minutes, Adelaide struggled to progress the ball in their attack line and the visitors were swift to make them pay. Game play was not pretty for either side to start but the connection between Swifts’ internationals Helen Housby and Sam Wallace in the goal circle held strong.
