Magic pip Steel in Invercargill

6:08 am on 18 April 2011

The Southern Steel pushed the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic to the limit in a low scoring dogfight in Invercargill last night but couldn't stop the Noeline Taurua coached side from posting their eight win in the trans-tasman netball championship.

The 38-33 victory cements the Magic in second place on the competition ladder behind the unbeaten Queensland Firebirds while the Steel remain in seventh.

Also last night the Melbourne Vixens thumped the West Coast Fever 54-38 in Perth to climb to third equal with the Northern Mystics, who have the chance to move into outright third when they face the NSW Swifts in Sydney tonight.

The second to last Central Pulse and bottom placed Canterbury Tactix round off round ten with their clash in Christchurch also tonight.
