Results for QLD Fusion rd 6 games

Queensland Fusion are currently ranked fourth on the ladder with 12 points after playing their last two games for the 2013 ANL season in Canberra over the weekend. To date, Fusion has won 6 of their 10 games. Next week they have a bye, and will have to wait on other team’s results in Round 7 to know whether they have qualified for the Finals.

On Saturday, Queensland Fusion played the Tassie Spirit taking them down 55:34. Fusion dominated the first and second quarters, with Tassie Spirit making a comeback in the third quarter to lead by one point, 11:10. But Fusion came back strong in the third quarter to solidify their win with a 21 point margin.

The tables were turned on Sunday, with Fusion going down to the NNSW Waratahs 46:39. The Waratahs took control of the game from the start leading every quarter. Fusion fought to keep up but just couldn’t make an impact on the southerners.

The AIS, who are sitting in second place, now withdraw from the competition as the team heads off to compete in the 2013 World Youth Netball Championships in Glasgow. Subsequently, the fifth placed team moves up and will take a place in the ANL Finals Series.
