Australian Diamonds Defeat Silver Ferns 55-43

Silver Ferns unable to halt fast-finishing Diamonds

Australian Diamonds 55 def Silver Ferns 43

The Silver Ferns were left to rue what might have been after the Australian Diamonds secured the Constellation Cup with a 55-43 win in the third Test in Adelaide on Wednesday.

The result gave the Diamonds a 3-0 lead in the series with one Test to play, in Sydney on Saturday.

Dominant second and fourth quarters set up the Diamonds win with the Silver Ferns unable to build on an impressive third quarter which had put them right back into contention. Both teams slipped in and out of a topsy turvy game, the Silver Ferns eventually paying the price.
