Magic return to Claudelands for Monday night match-up

The Splice Construction Magic is back at Claudelands Arena this coming Monday 15 April, where they will take on The Good Oil Tactix in Round 8 of the ANZ Premiership.

The team has not played a home game at Claudelands Arena since the opening round on 25 February.

The Waikato-Bay of Plenty side is coming off a strong win against the Northern Stars last Monday night (8 April) at Pulman Arena in Auckland, and is still in contention to make the top three and secure themselves a spot in the elimination final.

Head Coach Amigene Metcalfe was wrapped with the way the Magic women fronted up against the Stars in their last match and is hoping for a similar performance on Monday night.

“The girls really stepped up on Monday night, and I was really proud of all of them,” she says.

“Everyone and everything on court really connected, and it was great to see what we did at training, put out on court for a full 60 minutes.

“The Tactix will be a tough match up coming off a loss against the Mystics, so I’m sure it will be a real tussle out on court. We have only played them once so far this competition, which was back at the opening Super Sunday on 24 February, where we lost to them 42-48, so we are definitely out to get that win.”

Make sure you head along on Monday 15 April to Claudelands Arena, to watch the Splice Construction Magic in action.

Doors open 5.40pm for the Curtain Raiser match between St Pauls Collegiate and Hamilton Girls High School at 5.50pm, followed by Splice Constuction Magic vs The Good Oil Tactix at 7.40pm. Tickets available at
