The Southern Steel are eyeing another back-to-back title after securing their second win in the Super Club Netball Competition.
The Southerners continued their victory-run over the Mainland Tactix with a 66-51 win in the final match of the night at Nelson's Trafalgar Centre.
With a disciplined game plan, the Steel took an early lead to out-class their Southern rivals. Super shooter Jen O'Connell was in sublime form under the hoop while Te Huinga Reo Selby-Rickit kept her solid defence force in line.
The Tactix remained in contention for the first two quarters with Erikana Pedersen working in unison with the speedy Kimiora Poi throughout the midcourt.
But as the ANZ Premiership champions confidently found their rhythm in the second half, the Tactix slowly fell behind with hesitant and careless play.
The Central Pulse also put themselves back in the winner's circle, earlier, with an 81-35 victory over Fiji's Marama Vou.
Silver Ferns defender Karin Burger's height and agility caused problems for Marama Vou goal shot Laisani Waqa limiting the Fijian's opportunity to score.
Meanwhile, Claire Kersten found a fluid connection with Whitney Souness throughout the midcourt while Marama Vou defender Jenna O'Sullivan struggled to contain the Pulse shooters under the hoop.
As the Fijian side slowly derailed, the Pulse surged ahead in the third quarter to extend their lead to a hefty 44 goals before easing their way to victory.
Earlier in the evening, the Gauteng Jaguars defeated Singapore's Sneakers 72-47 before the NSWIS claimed their third straight victory with a 57-49 win over Scotland's Sirens.
The teams will enjoy a much-needed day off from the court tomorrow for 'community engagement day' before the cross pool matches tip off on Thursday afternoon.
