After suffering tight losses against the GIANTS and the Firebirds, Lightning will be doing our best to get the job done. West Coast Fever have notched up two dominant wins to open their campaign, but in order to stop them reaching a third Lightning will need to find a way to stop the amount of ball Fowler sees in this clash.

FAN ENGAGEMENT: Lightning athletes will be available to sign autographs shortly after the conclusion of the game. This will occur in the Hall of Fame breezeway near the athletics track end 15 minutes only. Signings are limited to one item each and minimal photos. This is to ensure the players have their correct recovery time and fairness that everyone gets a chance to get a signature. We appreciate your assistance in ensuring we can get the balance right for everyone!
