Match Report – Queensland Firebirds v Melbourne Vixens (Round 10, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY KATRINA NISSEN
Queensland Firebirds captain Gabi Simpson has issued a warning to all the other teams in the Suncorp Super Netball competition. After the Firebirds’ one-goal loss to the Melbourne Vixens, Simpson said that the loss would not break the team, “If anything, it will put more fire in the belly and watch out next week.” The statement comes after the Firebirds fought back from a seven-goal deficit, in the third quarter to finally take the lead in the final quarter. They looked to be building momentum, taking out a three-goal buffer, when a fumble from Mahalia Cassidy saw the Vixens earn a turnover and go on another mini-run of their own.
