While the Fever might be heading back to Perth with the trophy, it certainly wasn’t without a fight.

Liz Watson was the standout for the Vixens, with 20 feeds while Mwai Kumwenda also had a blinder of a match. She finished with 22/25.
Olivia Lewis worked tirelessly in the defensive circle and managed three gains.
GIANTS Netball vs NSW Swifts (3rd vs 3rd)
Romelda Aiken-George and Sophie Fawns were nearly unstoppable in their win against the GIANTS.
The pair combined for 31 of the Swifts’ 44 goals to the GIANTS’ 38.
While GIANT Lauren Moore once again proved why she is a force in the wing defence bib with four deflections and two intercepts, the Swifts team put on a consistent and impressive performance across the entire court.
Sarah Klau was solid in defence while Maddy Proud helped control the midcourt alongside Tayla Fraser.
The Swifts gained full control in the last term, which was capped off with a Aiken-George Super Shot to seal the victory.

It was a final quarter surge that spearheaded the Queensland Firebirds to a win against the Collingwood Magpies during the first match of the final day (49-40).

Mia Stower also did a lot of the hard work out front, feeding seamlessly into Wallam.
