Fast5 World Series 2017
DOMINANT DEFENSIVE DISPLAY POWERS AUSTRALIA TO BRONZE
Australia have handed New Zealand their worst result in Fast5 history, winning the bronze medal match by 19 points.
The 34-15 result means New Zealand will finish out of the medals for the first time in history.
However it wasn’t enough to go all the way this year with England defeating Jamaica in a thrilling 34-29 match,
which was neck-and-neck until the final quarter where England used their Power Play to full advantage.
England captain Ama Agbeze felt the attitude of the team was what helped them to success.
“This is absolutely unbelievable. In modern netball, I don’t think England has ever won a gold medal so, this is actually gold to us.
“Just having a laugh always off the court, I think just being light-hearted and that’s pretty much what we’ve done now.
We’ve been able to be ourselves.” After finishing fifth in last year’s tournament, Jamaica was undefeated all tournament,
with their only loss in the grand final match.
