NS SCOREBOARD – ANZP Round 14
By Ian Harkin
Round 14 of the ANZ Premiership was the round that the three playoff teams were decided. Ladder leaders, the Northern Mystics cemented their position on top of the ladder and will now play off in the Grand Final at Spark Arena in Auckland. Meanwhile, second and third placed Mainland Tactix and Southern Steel, both had wins to book their place in the Preliminary Final. If that makes it sound as if the results of round 14 were a mere formality, nothing could be further from the truth. All three games were nail biters that went down to the last minute.
