Shooting accuracy in the fourth quarter - England at 83%, NZ at 38%
Mes in perfect position for the rebound, after Tutaia almost shot that from the edge of the circle.
Perhaps ENG should have bought Mkoloma on earlier though. She's such a tough defender, disruptive, talkative - she'd be infuriating to play against.
5 minutes to go and the lead is 10....do we call it yet???
I may have suggested Tutaia was due one of those "lights out" games. She has been unstoppable.
I wouldn't be brave enough to call it! But a nine goal lead with less than four to go, I think NZ is safe.
There are those Mkoloma arms, disrupting NZ ball. ENG possession but there's now less than three on the clock.
NZ again very clean on offensive. They've kept the dialogue open with Sharon Kelly this week, about what and why she called them against JAM and have adjusted accordingly.
Under a minute to go...strap yourselves in Ferns fans, they're off to the final again.
Tutaia with the final nail! NZ is in to the final!
A lot of ANZ Champs team-mates out there, mutual respect between the players.
Same old for England though. And they've really been a bit disappointing in this tournament.
Aside from the 2nd quarter, they barely fired a shot in the game.
Ferns waving to their numerous supporters in the crowd.
Tutaia on her phone as she leaves. looking for someone in the crowd to yarn to. She was exceptional.
Kopua: "We just had to do our own jobs and do it well, make sure we had a full consistent 60 minutes"
No one really knew what to expect from this Silver Ferns team, but they've really shown a lot of variety, ability to persevere when things aren't working and extreme confidence in each other.
Will they play Australia or Jamaica in the final? That semi-final is up next. Dana and myself will have all the reaction and lead up to the final on the NZ Herald and Radio Sport.
