Southern Steel record comfortable victory over Magic to complete ANZ Premiership Super Sunday

The Southern Steel have kept up their impressive form in the ANZ Premiership, finishing off tonight's triple header with a 59-46 win over the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Magic.

Looking to consolidate their position in the ANZ Premiership's top three, the Steel were hardly tested by the Magic, pulling away to a 19-10 lead at the end of the first quarter, adding to that for a 33-20 advantage at half time.

The Selby-Rickit sisters came up trumps for the Steel, with Te Paea shooting 21 goals from 28 shots, while Te Huinga led the way at the defensive end.

Lenize Potgieter also shone inside the shooting circle for the Steel, hitting 32 from 40 attempts as the Southerners sealed a comfortable win.

Victory sees the Steel overtake the Stars into second place with 17 points from seven games, while the Magic sit fourth with nine points, now six back from third.
