Dis­ap­point­ing end to sea­son

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

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.
