Stars book ticket to grand final

NORTHERN Stars have booked their spot in the ANZ Premiership Grand Final after a 53-52 win over Central Pulse.

The pure emotion from the players on and off the court […]

Thunderbirds edge out Fever in history-repeating win

AFTER a poor performance last week, the Adelaide Thunderbirds bounced back in a big way, defeating West Coast Fever by one goal to hand the Fever their fourth single goal loss this season.

Superior Swifts dispose of Pies

THE NSW Swifts have absolutely demolished the Collingwood Magpies to win 85 goals to 56.

Thanks to some strong work in defence, […]

Vicious Vixens destroy weakened Thunderbirds

MELBOURNE Vixens annihilated the Adelaide Thunderbirds in the Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) yesterday, winning 60-39 to send an ominous warning to the rest of the competition.

New week, same nail-biting end for Vixens

IT is déjà vu for the Melbourne Vixens as they defeated the Sunshine Coast Lightning by one goal in the dying seconds. Much like last weekend, one final Super Shot from the Vixens in the dying seconds is all that split the teams in the end, despite an almighty final quarter comeback from the Lightning. […]

Fever heartbreak again as Swifts pinch nail-biter

NSW Swifts have pinched an epic win over the West Coast Fever, winning by one goal with dying second goal.  In what must be feeling like deja vu for those in green, it was tight for much of the match but the Swifts grabbed the 65-64 win at the very last possible opportunity.  With both […]
