Voice of Sunshine Girls captain Jhaniele Fowler

Sunshine Girls captain Jhaniele Fowler says the achievement of scoring 5000 goals in the Suncorp Super Netball League in Australia ranks high on her list of accomplishments.

Playing in her 100th league game last weekend, Fowler scored a perfect 55 goals from 55 attempts to lead the West Coast Fever to 67-62 come from behind win over defending champions New South Wales Swifts in their minor semi-final match.

In the process, Fowler also surpassed 5000 goals in the league. Fowler joined compatriot Romelda Aiken in soaking up the accolades, as Aiken reached 7000 goals in the league in late September.

Fowler's West Coast Fever team  will play the Sunshine Coast Lightning in the preliminary final on Sunday. The winner of Sunday's match will face Melbourne Vixens in  the grand finale on October 18.
