Tactix lose to Magic in last minute thriller in Nelson


Zoe Walker’s return to Nelson came up just short as her Mainland Tactix went down 58-57 to the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic in their ANZ Championship game at Nelson’s Trafalgar Centre today

Walker played more than three quarters of netball after starting at goal defence, only going off for a brief spell in the third quarter.

The Tactix led for much of the game after a fast start and a dominant second quarter which they won 17-10.

However, the could not shake the Magic and the visitors were able to hold their nerve down the stretch in front of a large crowd.

It was a bitter pill for Tactix after they had won two games by a single goal earlier this season.
