Fans upset in shockers

THE tables turned during Saturday night’s Super Netball clash at Ken Rosewall Arena as the Melbourne Vixens stole the win 53-48 from champions, the NSW Swifts.

A stand out for the Swifts was skipper Maddy Proud. The team leader locked in a whopping total of 39 feeds and 21 goal assists. The Swifts take on the Magpies on Saturday, April 9, from 7pm at Ken Rosewall Arena.
It was a similar result for the Covid-effected Giants side which couldn’t match it with the Thunderbirds for all four quarters and lost 56-43 at Netball SA Stadium on Sunday.
The Giants, contentiously, were twice denied permission to reschedule the fixture after six players – including Diamonds trio Jamie-Lee Price, Sophie Dwyer and Amy Parmenter – were unavailable due to Covid-19 protocols.
Amy Sligar, back from isolation, starred for the visitors who were given no chance but surprisingly took it to Adelaide early, moving ahead 15-13 at quarter-time.
They held a slender one-goal buffer in the third and were dreaming of something special before their defence broke down and all was lost.
