Disappointing end to season
MELBOURNE Vixens secured top spot on the Super Netball ladder by beating West Coast Fever 68-42 at Perth Arena on Saturday night.
Head coach Stacey Marinkovich said there was a lack of execution in attack during the game and the score line was a disappointing end to the year.
Captain Natalie Medhurst failed to dominate against the strong Vixens defence, scoring just three goals from seven attempts and was replaced by Kate Beveridge after half-time.
Beveridge got five from five, while Kaylia Stanton converted 34 goals.
Medhurst returned to the court as wing attack in the final quarter.
The Vixens, who will play Sunshine Coast Lightning in the major semi-final on Saturday in Melbourne, dominated from the start, scoring the first three goals of the match.
Giants will play Magpies in the minor semi-final on Saturday in Sydney.
Fever finished 2017 seventh on the ladder.
