Pulse on fire

Aap
Tuesday, May 13, 2014

AUCKLAND - The Central Pulse have continued their push for the trans-Tasman netball league play-offs with a 58-50 win over the Mainland Tactix in Nelson.

The visitors repelled a second quarter comeback by the bottom-of-the-table Tactix before pulling away for a comfortable victory.

The result meant the Pulse moved level on competition points with the fourth-place NSW Swifts, who are in action against the West Coast Fever on Monday.

It also avenged their upset loss to the Tactix in Napier in March.

Paula Griffin produced a strong performance at goal attack for the Pulse after being given rare game time, starting in place of Donna Wilkins, who was nursing a minor ankle injury.
