Southland Women's Basketball was strong in 1986 and a win over Wellington of 67-64 saw it join the latter at the top of the table.
Southland was leading 35-31 at half time but a lack of concentration let their opponents back into the game. Shooting was the key in Southland's win at 45% compared to Wellington's 31%.
Every time Wellington caught up on the score board within 1 or 2 points, Southland always seemed to get a second wind and put pressure back on.
Chanel Hamilton was the player of the game with a stat of 26 points. It was not only her shooting but her play on and off the board where she picked up 21 rebounds.
Liz Corkery netted 15 points which included a dead on three pointer.
Pauline Flanders played her usual solid game for 12 points.
If Southland kept up this type of play they would have been a favourite to make the top four playoffs at the end of the season.
