by April 19th, 2017

Top rated Jamaican goal-shooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid was at her scintillating best scoring a career best 70 goals to lead the Southern Steel to a crushing 90-41 win over the Canterbury Tactix in round 4 of the ANZ Premiership netball tournament in New Zealand.

Fowler-Reid, who also grabbed 5 rebounds, missed just 5 shots to finish with a shooting accuracy of 93 percent.

She is now joint first on the scoring charts with 227 goals, the same as Lenize Potgieter of the WBP Magic.

The Steel meanwhile were scoring more than 70 goals in a match for the 4th time this season. The 49 goal win over the bottom of the table Tactix is also a tournament record.

They have also reclaimed top spot on the table with maximum 8 points from 4 games. The Central Pulse and WBP Magic are both next on 7 points but have played extra games.

Fowler-Reid will next be in action when the Steel oppose the Northern Stars in round 5 on April 26.
