Adelaide maul Swifts 62-35 in netball

Adelaide Thunderbirds coach Jane Woodlands-Thompson says her side displayed "mind-blowing" form with a record-setting 62-35 drubbing of fellow trans-Tasman netball finals aspirant NSW Swifts on Sunday.

Thunderbirds scored the first four goals and completely dominated, leading by seven, 16 and 23 at the three breaks at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre.

The result represented the Swifts' biggest ever loss in the competition, eclipsing their 18-goal pummelling by the Magic in 2009.

They also recorded their lowest ever score, falling short of the 38 goals they managed against Adelaide in a 2010 semi-final.

The result lifted Adelaide into the top two and seriously jeopardised the Swifts' hopes of a top four spot.

Adelaide shot at 89 per cent to the Swifts' 78, with Jamaican Carla Borrego spearheading the Thunderbirds with 44 goals from 48 attempts.

"I was confident that we'd play well, but the margin is pretty mind blowing against such a quality team like the Swifts," Woodlands-Thompson said.

NSW co-captain Kimberlee Green offered no excuses and paid credit to Adelaide for dragging the Swifts out of their game plan.

"We lost our first centre pass and from there we just didn't have any rhythm," Green said.

"All credit to the Thunderbirds, they absolutely killed us in their defence."

Green said the Swifts needed to win both of their last two games to make the finals.

She insisted it would be pretty easy for NSW to bounce back after such a massive loss.

"We'll probably look at the video tomorrow night and I'm sure there will be silly things that we've done," Green said.

"But it's about our want to get out on court and want to win."

Swifts coach Lisa Beehag changed almost all of her lineup for the second half, but it made no difference, as relentless Adelaide stretched their lead in front of a subdued sellout crowd of 4093.

"We were really prepared for a vocal crowd and I think after the first quarter, it was quiet, quiet," said Adelaide and former Swifts defender Bec Bulley.

"All I could hear was our team basically, so that's nice. It means we're doing a good job."
