The defending champions have notched their ninth straight victory of this year's ANZ Premiership, now odds on to defend their title.

The Pulse outscored the Magic in every quarter, restricing their opponents to single figures in all four periods of the match.

Again, the shooting duo of Ameliaranne Ekenasion (28 from 29) and Aliyah Dunn (19 from 20) led the way, before Grace Mclean (2 from 2) and Tiana Metuarau (3 from 5) were given a chance in the latter stages.

The Pulse move a staggering 15 points clear on top of the ANZ Premiership ladder, and will back up against the fourth placed Stars tomorrow.
