Match Analysis - Preview

Vixens vs Fever

Melbourne Vixens v West Coast Fever

  • The Vixens suffered their second consecutive loss when they went down to the Swifts last week. This is the first time the Vixens have lost two games in a row in ANZ Championship history.
  • The Fever are coming off a six-goal loss against the Firebirds last week, but the team will take many positives out of the match with the young side pressuring the Queenslanders for all four quarters.
  • Fever shooter Caitlin Bassett scored 50 goals last week out of her team's 59-goal total. She leads the overall goal scoring tally in the competition with 247
  • Vixens have played the last two matches without Natasha Chokljat; with the crucial centre court still under an injury cloud for the Round 8 clash.
  • Fever centre court Madison Browne is third in the competition for centre pass receives with 85, while goal keeper Susan Fuhrmann leads the competition in a less desirable statistic, obstruction penalties, with 48.
