The Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic boosted their chances of making the ANZ championship netball finals by beating the Central Pulse 52-42 in Tauranga last night.

The rejuvinated Pulse came out strong in the first half leading by 3 at the break, but the Magic desperate for the win upped the ante winning the third and final quarters.

The Magic now lie fifth on the table, just one spot away from the crucial top four, with three rounds to play.

Earlier the New South Wales Swifts survived a serious challenge by the West Coast Fever eventually beating them 51-49 and the Adelaide Thunderbirds beat the Queensland Firebirds 54-49.
