Firebirds beat Tactix to keep eye on Netball finals

THE QUEENSLAND Firebirds are looking hot ahead of the finals of the trans-Tasman netball championship.

They claimed a 69-52 victory over cellar dwellers the Mainland Tactix at the Gold Coast Convention Centre yesterday afternoon to keep their grip on fourth spot with three games to play.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports, Firebirds’ shooter Romelda Aiken was the dominant presence on court, narrowly missing out on her points-scoring record of 58 with a tally of 54 from 57 attempts.


The defeat means the Christchurch-based Tactix still have just one win for the season.
