MAGPIES TO FACE GIANTS IN SUDDEN DEATH SEMI-FINAL
Tiarne Swersky - May 28, 2017
Following the final round of matches of the inaugural Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) season, the Magpies will travel to Sydney to meet the Giants in a sudden death final next Saturday night.
Having finished third on the ladder, the Giants will host the fourth-placed Magpies in the Minor Semi-Final at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre.
The winner of this match will progress to the Preliminary Final and will play the losing side of the Major Semi Final (Vixens or Lightning).
The Giants and Magpies played in two regular season games, with both teams picking up a victory while competing on their opponent’s home court.
The first game was played in round four at Hisense Arena, where the Giants defeated the Magpies 59-51.
However, in the most recent contest – in round nine – the Magpies held off a fast-finishing Giants outfit to record a thrilling 59-56 victory to keep their finals hopes alive.
It all comes down to next week where the winner advances and the loser will see their season finish prematurely.
