Match Report – Melbourne Vixens v West Coast Fever (Round 7, 2018, Suncorp Super Netball)
BY JANE EDWARDS
There were six thousand people at Hisense Arena to watch the Melbourne Vixens take on ladder leaders West Coast Fever, who had lost only one game in the first six rounds. The 2018 Fever team have lost only one away game this season, and with their home team coming off two losses in a row, some more pragmatic supporters might have been hoping to see a good contest at most, and view the heroics of Jhaniele Fowler in person. While each team has an import shooter who anchors the team with spectacular play, it was the position of WA that proved pivotal in this game, with the Vixens’ Liz Watson having a standout performance.
