Storm slipped to their third defeat in a week, losing in the last minute to the final shot of the game. After a bright start in difficult conditions Storm went in 9-5 up at the end of the first quarter. However, a disastrous 2nd quarter saw a complete reversal with the team managing just six attempts on goal and finding themselves 11-16 down.
A much improved start to the third quarter saw Storm draw level at one stage, only for Saints to increase their advantage to six by the end of the quarter (18-24), as the team struggled to deal with the opposition's long ball game. The final quarter saw Storm work hard to close the deficit and some accurate shooting brought the teams level, only for Saints to score the deciding goal. Laura Wilks and Hannah Butler made welcome returns to the team, and Iona Wong showed her versatility with two solid quarters as WA. Laura Burton was awarded player of the match for a hard working mid-court display.
