Match Report – NSW Swifts v Giants (Round 3, Suncorp Super Netball 2018)
BY LOU PATTON
The NSW Swifts pulled out a thrilling one goal victory over rivals the Giants, in the first Sydney derby for the season. It was a break-through victory for the Swifts – their first against the Giants in Suncorp Super Netball, and their second come-from-behind win for the season. The Giants are seven years older than the Swifts on average, but experience couldn’t win the game. The Giants were in control for most of the match and stretched the lead out to five a number of times; but were unable to close it out. Umpiring decisions didn’t fall their way late in the game, but it was costly turnovers and an inability to convert gains that were the main deficiencies.
