Bardgett got her first in the 43rd to level matters, before scoring two more in the 57th and 63rd minute to put the Swifts in a winning position.

But some poor Swifts defending allowed Budgies' Marcia Ford to score in the 65th minute, but a penalty corner goal in the 67th minute by Robinson drew the teams level once again.

A field goal in the 69th minute off the stick of Keishae Robinson earned the Budgies the win.

Chameleons raced into a 4-0 lead within the first 20 minutes, with Richard Cox (4th, 15th), Adam Griffiths (17) and James Corby (19) all finding the net.

However with the game seemingly sewn up, complacency set in, and two long balls led to Upstarts' Bruce Smith scoring field goals in the 29th minute and Adam Holdt in the 31st minute to end the first half 4-2 to Chameleons.

Paul Deans scored a well executed reverse stick strike to restore Chameleons' three-goal cushion in the 58th minute.

Upstarts, however, scored in the 62nd through Donny Moniz, making the score 5-3. In the 70th minute, a long run saw Chameleons' Robin Smallman carve through a Upstarts' defence, nutmegging the last defender to score his team's sixth goal of the game.
