The table topping Central Pulse showed their class in the later stages to clinch a 47-36 win over the Mainland Tactix in their domestic netball clash in Christchurch.

The match-up between the two best defensive teams in the competition produced just that, a tight, low-scoring spectacle which took until the final quarter to open up.

After a third quarter comeback, a Tactix upset beckoned before the Pulse steadied the ship to seal the result.

Pulse captain Katrina Grant was a standout throughout the match while the introduction of rookie Mila Reuelu-Buchanan and Ameliaranne Ekenasio helped the visitors to get over the line.

The Pulse are now two points clear of the Southern Steel in first place with the Tactix third a further four points back.

The Pulse have four games left and the Tactix three.

The top three teams qualify for the play-offs.
