THE Giants have saved their best for the last game of the Super Netball regular season, toppling league leaders West Coast Fever 69-66 to win hosting and boasting rights heading into the semi- finals .

A heavily strapped Fowler wasn't as mobile as she might have liked on her return but she was accurate when she had a clean shot at goal, claiming 48 goals from 48 attempts.

Fever goal keeper Courtney Bruce and goal defence Stacey Francis frustrated the Giants at the other end.

Six intercepts from Bruce and strong body positioning saw goal attack Jo Harten (33 from 38 attempts) and goal shooter Susan Pettitt (24/30) hit the floor a number of times.

The Giants refused to give up, completing a five-goal run just before halftime to threaten the Fever's dominance before being ground back down to eight behind midway through the third period.

The seven-goal run from Giants that followed would see them just a single goal away from tying up the game as they headed into the final quarter, but Fever controlled the Quaycentre clash until the final whistle.
