Black Sticks striker Charlotte Harrison's ticked off a milestone she once wondered she'd ever reach.

Harrison's played her 200th test for New Zealand, scoring the final goal in a 3-1 win over Ireland at the Hawke's Bay Cup.

Harrison, who's first played for the Black Sticks as a 16-year old, was dropped at the end of 2013 and only returned to the squad last year.

She's now cemented herself in the team, but says she did question whether to keep playing hockey.

Harrison says she's glad she chose to keep going and is really enjoying it at the moment.

New Zealand is unbeaten after three pool games and plays Korea tomorrow in the quarter-finals.
