The Southern Steel win the ANZ Premiership

The Southern Steel have completed their season run unbeaten. They claimed victory in the final over the Central Pulse finishing 69 – 53.

They led 18-10 at the end of the first quarter and 35-20 at halftime, slowing only fractionally in the third quarter for a 55-38 lead with 15 minutes remaining.

Steel Captain Wendy Frew at wing defence shut down Pulse wing attack Whitney Souness, while Selby-Rickit’s steady shot was well supplemented by her hard work off the ball in creating time and space for shooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid.

Pulse defenders Katrina Grant and Phoenix Karaka never gave up, but the pace of the Steel attack and the creativity of the feed into Fowler-Reid and Selby-Rickit left them no chance.

The Pulse battled to win the final quarter 15-14, but the Steel’s pace, patience and accuracy across 60 minutes left them comprehensive winners.
