Swifts HQ: Friday 30 May

In SwiftsHQ we bring you the week that was for the NSW Swifts…

The NSW Swifts are in the finals after claiming a 55-43 Round 13 win over Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic last Sunday.  The win not only secured the Swifts a Top Four finish, but also saw the Club leap-frog the Julie Fitzgerald-led Kiwis into second spot.

Swifts Captain Kimberlee Green was named MVP after a stellar performance, including some spectacular feeds into her shooters.  Her midcourt teammate Sarah Wall had front row seats to the passes, saying after the match;
What an awesome game from Kim Green and our goalers.  Some of the passes I was just like, ‘What a legend!”
Watch the NSWSwiftsTV interview with Sarah Wall and see what some of the other Swifts said about the win:

But the on-court heroics weren’t just from Kim Green (although how cool were some of her passes!) – the whole team got in on the action from spectacular intercepts to gravity defying rebounds.  It was a feast for the eyes of all netball lovers!

With a Finals Series berth secured, the Swifts have the opportunity at a covet second chance opportunity with a win this weekend giving them a Top Two finish.
It will be no easy task however with the team travelling across the Tasman to Auckland to meet an in-form Northern Mystics this Sunday 1 June.  The star-studded Mystics are coming off their most convincing performance so far this season, with a 63-51 victory over the West Coast Fever.
NSWSwiftsTV spoke with Head Coach Rob Wright who said the Swifts were up to the challenge of meeting the Kiwi rivals on their turf.

Speaking of the Finals Series, there’s still plenty to play for this weekend with the Top Four positions to be finalised at the conclusion of Round 14.  A win will see the Swifts retain second spot and a potential Major Semi Final contest against the Vixens in Melbourne; however a loss could see us drop as far as fourth on the ladder.

The 2014 ANZ Championship Finals Series is run by the Trans-Tasman Netball League (TTNL), and confirmation of the Top Four and Semi Final details including ticketing arrangements, dates, times and venues, will be released by the League following the conclusion of Round 14 on Monday 2 June. The NSW Swifts will pass these details onto our supporters through all our digital channels.
