Match report – Melbourne Vixens v NSW Swifts (Round 2, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY CARA GLEDHILL
The Melbourne Vixens held their own to take a closely fought 63-61 win over the NSW Swifts. An injury to defender Jo Weston in the first quarter saw the Vixens struggle to find their usual rhythm against a slick Swifts outfit, with the Vixens only clinching victory in the last few minutes. Momentum swung throughout, with accurate shooting from both sides the only constant. The ball into Mwai Kumwenda was slow to come at first. The Vixens midcourters were guilty of forcing the high ball in off their first centre pass and lost it with Maddy Turner and Sarah Klau doubling back on her.
