Vixens keep unbeaten record intact

11:49 am on 1 June 2009

The Melbourne Vixens have maintained their unbeaten record in the trans-Tasman netball league with a hard-fought 57-53 win over the Firebirds.

Queensland led 27-23 at half time, holding off the Vixens until three minutes into the final quarter, when the competition leaders finally hit the lead.

Melbourne are top of the ladder, two points clear of the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic, who have a bye this weekend.

The Canterbury Tactix play the Mystics in Auckland tonight while the West Coast Fever host the Thunderbirds in Perth.
