Last gasp goal gets Steel over line

A last second goal to George Fisher has helped the Southern Steel to a dramatic victory.

She rebounded her own miss to give the side a 59-58 win over the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic at the Edgar Centre tonight.

The Steel led most of the way and held a seven-goal buffer early in the fourth quarter.

However, the Magic rallied and erased the deficit with one minute left.

It was unable to take the lead though and with the scores tied, Fisher converted in the final second to allow the Steel to escape.
