The Diamonds brought their best game to the court.

Australia remained in the lead throughout the match, despite New Zealand’s best efforts to claw back.

Shooter Caitlin Bassett starred scoring 40 goals from 44 attempts.

Goal attack, Natalie Madhurst shot Australia another 12 goals to seal the final score, 52-47.

She was named the Diamonds’ Most Valuable Player.

Natalie Medhurst, MVP: “To bounce back from the first loss in Invercargill and come back out here and win that trophy back, thats certainly what we wanted to do and its been incredible.”

The final test is in Canberra on Sunday.
