Well. The Ferns have given themselves a chance going into the final quarter if nothing else.
Final huddles, words from Kopua and Geitz. NZ with first possession.
It's basically three turnovers. Six goals is nothing and NZ has won the last two quarters.
But they need to stop Bassett at the other end.
Kopua a little late, thought she had the touch.
Goal for goal so far in the quarter.
It takes a while but Medhurst gets one for Aussie. Rock solid as always tonight.
Bassett perhaps getting a little shaky, passing out a lot etc. There's again a lot happening in the circles and the umpires just seem to be picking things at random!
@kiwi83: I'm like a duck...calm from the face up but treading water madly!
Ferns desperate for a turnover, that would give them and the fans real hope.
Tutaia has ice in her veins, I swear.
Australia gain the turnover, this could be a hammer blow for NZ
Ouch that one hurts. Aussie ball.
and another quick goal to push it back out to eight with just under eight to go. Time out called by de Bruin.
Eight minutes for the Silver Ferns to give it stink, they will fiy for everything now.
and tutaia fumbles, but luckily Corletto is called for contact and NZ score.
Beautiful speed from Medhurst, dishes to Bassett who finishes.
Time really against NZ now, with six minutes to go.
Medurst misses. Kopua with the rebound.
Mes with rebound number 700
Scores to go back within 6, NZ possession just under 5 to go.
de Bruin now dropping back on Bassett today, but her hold has been really strong today and they just haven't been able to disrupt her.
3 minutes to go, the margin 6.
