A third-quarter blitz by Northern Mystics has resulted in a 58-47 win over Central Pulse in their ANZ Premiership netball game in Wellington.
The Pulse led 27-23 at half time, but were outscored 22-8 in the third quarter.
The Mystics remain in second place, behind Northern Stars, with three wins from four games, while the Pulse are fourth with one win.
Much of the kudos went to teenage goal shoot Grace Nweke, who had one of her best games of the season, taking on more than the lion's share of the Mystics shooting. Showing balance, strength and accuracy under the hoop, she ended the game with 51 goals from 55 shots at 93 percent shooting.
The defending champions had trouble stopping the flow of ball to Nweke, while the Mystics defence was strong throughout the court.
