SWAN Districts Netball Association product Sunday Aryang’s efforts in defence played a big part in West Coast Fever’s 16-goal win over the NSW Swifts on the weekend.

Aryang ended her game with 11 deflections, four of those in the last quarter.

She played a big role in shutting down the shooting capabilities of England Rose Helen Housby who only managed  three goals against Fever’s defensive unit.

In the first quarter the combination of Aryang’s pressure in the goal circle and mid-courter Kadie-Ann Dehaney’s quick hands resulted in four deflections and a rebound from the pair.

The Swifts came out swinging in the second quarter, making the girls in green work that bit harder after Fever won the first quarter 23-15.

Aryang’s awareness of the ball was incredibly impressive, taking a deflection from a distance to round out her three from the quarter.

But at half time the score was 34-33 with Fever just in front.

Australian Diamond Aryang seemed to be flying throughout the match, constantly aware of the ball and its movements, both in the goal circle and throughout the court.

Fever slowed down the chaotic nature of the second quarter, listening to head coach Dan Ryan’s call to once again control their movements, taking back control to finish the third quarter 57-48.

In the final quarter Aryang had four deflections while at the other end of the court goal shooter Fowler-Nembhard demonstrated just how good she really is with a 98 per cent shooting accuracy – both helping Fever to their 75-59 win.
