The Tactix slim ANZ Championship playoff hopes were all but dashed after suffering a 62-58 defeat to the Adelaide Thunderbirds in Christchurch last night.
Carlo Borrego was on song for the visitors scoring 46 goals as the Tactix suffered a third straight loss.
Sophia Fenwick scored 33 goals and Jo Harten added 25 in a losing cause.
The Thunderbirds held a 34-25 advantage at halftime before the Tactix staged a late comeback but it wasn't enough to topple the competition's inform team.
The victory completed a South Island sweep for the Thunderbirds after beating the Steel in week three.
