The Giants have equalled the all-time Super Netball scoring record and sent a statement to their rivals by crushing Sunshine Coast Lightning 82-54 at USC Stadium.
With a top-four berth at the season's half-way mark on the line between the two sides, a tight match was anticipated on Sunday but the Giants, after a ragged start, ran riot.
Their score equalled the competition-best haul posted by West Coast Fever, also against the Lightning, in the season opener in March.
In defeating long-time bogey side Sunshine Coast for the first time since 2018, the Giants had winners all over the court.
Centre Jamie-Lee Price set the early tempo, Maddie Hay was tireless and creative at wing attack and Amy Brandley (seven rebounds, four deflections) led a miserly defence.
"We came here to do business," Brandley said.
"Staying in the moment was really important for us.
"I think we did a really good job to stay composed."
With Lightning defenders Tara Hinchliffe and Katie Walsh creating early havoc, the Giants fell behind 11-8 when coach Julie Fitzgerald called a timeout and implored her midcourt to avoid getting too wide and deep.
It proved a masterstroke.
The visitors silenced the crowd by going on an 11-0 tear and they never relented.
They shutdown the Lightning with an 18-11 second term before showing their wares offensively with a 26-14 third stanza, Jo Harten and Sophie Dwyer firing in the circle.
The hosts became frustrated with a plethora of turnovers and penalties, Lightning coach Kylee Byrne bemoaning: "We couldn't understand the amount of whistle we were getting".
The margin blew out to 62-35 in the third quarter and after Sunshine Coast showed some belated fight in the fourth, the Giants again surged, finishing powerfully with the last eight goals of the whitewash.
