NSW Swifts have set up a rematch of last years trans-Tasman netball league final with a 64-45 semi-final win over the Magic in Hamilton on Monday.The comprehensive win showcased the Swifts at their best - gritty defence melding with a driving midcourt and finished off by superbly accurate shooting.Apart from a sluggish start, the Swifts dominated every quarter, earning the chance to avenge last years 57-56 grand final loss to the Firebirds.The Magics zone defence worked well in containing the Swifts pacy attacking line in the first stanza, introducing some uncharacteristic hesitation into the front third.Two quick goals in the last 30 seconds gave the Swifts a 16-14 lead at the first break, and the visitors built on that momentum as the second quarter progressed.Goalkeeper Sharni Layton was outstanding in her 100th ANZ Championship game, relentless in harassing Magic shooter Jo Harten, intimidating on the shot and impressive in hunting the ball outside the circle.Turnovers proved costly for the Magic, the home team unable to score from the few they created while the Swifts proved clinical in converting theirs to lead 33-24 at halftime.The Swifts were ruthless in winning the third quarter 16-7 to take a 49-31 lead into the last 15 minutes, easing back in the final stanza to wrap up a comprehensive win.Shooter Caitlin Thwaites missed only three goals over 60 minutes, sinking 43 from 46, ably supported by Susan Pettitts 15 from 19, while Harten led the way for the Magic with 38 from 42.Swifts skipper Kim Green, playing her first full game since injuring her knee in round five, said the Swifts had worked hard to shut down the Magic defensively.We knew we just had to have that defensive pressure, and I think you could see that all over the court, she said.We know how hard it is to ball off teams like this, and we have to make sure we stick to our game plan when we do get those turnovers. Magic captain Leana de Bruin said it was a disappointing way to end the season.We just didnt play our own game tonight, and credit to them - they pushed us into areas we didnt like to be in.They were fast and furious on attack, and we just couldnt stick to them.

Cheap Bears Jerseys Hoodies . The Islanders dealt Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens after less than a year on Long Island. Meanwhile, the Oilers dealt long-time sniper Ales hemsky to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a third-rounder in 2015. TORONTO -- Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr traveled to see a hyped first matchup between Auston Matthews and Connor McDavid. They got a show from Nazem Kadri instead.Kadri got his second goal of the game in overtime, lifting the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Tuesday night.Matthews and McDavid were scoreless in the first showdown of the last two No. 1 overall picks. McDavid, from nearby Richmond Hill, Ontario, played his first NHL game in Toronto, and the game had enough hype to bring in legends Gretzky and Orr to watch.Kadri claimed he missed all the buildup.To be honest with you I dont know what people were talking about before the game, he said. I was just focused on my matchup and my assignment and just doing whatever I can to help the team win.Kadri won it on the first shift of overtime, eluding McDavids pursuit before beating Cam Talbot. The Leafs 26-year-old top line center has five goals in 10 games. He needed 27 games and almost two months (Dec. 5) to get there last season.His line also managed to hold McDavid off the scoreboard.He can embarrass you when he gets time and space so I just tried to limit that from him and just stay on top of him as much as I could, Kadri said.Hes a good player, McDavid said of Kadri. He played me hard. Good for him.Frederik Andersen had 44 saves for Toronto and Ben Smith also scored. The Leafs have won three of four games at home this season.Edmonton has dropped two in a row for the first time this season. Anton Lander and Darnell Nurse scored and Talbot stopped 28 shots.McDavids line was burned for the first goal of the game 89 seconds into the first period, with Kadri striking for an eaarly lead.ddddddddddddAfter hitting a pair of posts, the Oilers got on the board with 31 seconds left in the first. The action was driven by 25-year-old fourth line fireplug Tyler Pitlick, who stole the puck behind the Toronto goal and found Lander open in front.McDavid had his chances, rushing down the right side at one point and then flipping a backhand attempt on Andersen. McDavid had four shots on goal in nearly 23 minutes.Leafs coach Mike Babcock was surprised at how much Oilers coach Todd McLellan, his former assistant in Detroit, used McDavid. The Leafs coach thought McDavid wore down as the night wore on.I was never expecting the guy to play that much, Babcock said. Hes a good player and all that, but so is (Ryan) Nugent-Hopkins.Matthews, meanwhile, generated some opportunities after a quiet first period, including a few good looks on setups from NHL rookie of the month for October William Nylander. Matthews finished with six shots.Smith put the Leafs in front 2-1 early into the second frame. Nurse lost sight of Smith as he crashed the net.Nurse beat Anderson high glove side for a goal near the midway point of the third period that tied it 2-2.Game notes McDavid and Matthews saw the ice against one another only sparingly over two periods, though more so in the final frame. Matthews, the first overall pick one year after McDavid, described the meeting as just another game on Tuesday morning.UP NEXTOilers: Play at the New York Rangers on Thursday night.Maple Leafs: Play at the Buffalo Sabers on Thursday night.
