Queensland wins netball title

11:02 am on 23 May 2011

The Queensland Firebirds have won the trans-tasman netball championship after beating the Northern Mystics 57-44 in the grand final in Brisbane.

The Mystics, who were looking for New Zealand's first title in the competition, trailed by just 2 at half time, however the homeside took control from then with star shooter Romelda Aitken finishing off some great midcourt work by the Firebirds.

Queensland outscored the Mystics 18-8 in the third quarter as the Mystics ball dried up.

The Firebirds went through the season unbeaten.
