In one of the most bizarre finishes to an indoor netball game the Central Pulse last night claimed their first point in the Trans-Tasman championship.

The game, played in Perth's Challenge Stadium, was called off at half time after the stadium roof developed a leak which flooded the court. The Pulse were being hammered by 17 points at the time.

If the game had been called off after the 3rd quarter began the team leading - the West Coast Fever - would have been declared the winner, but because play did not resume after the break it was awarded a draw and the Pulse got their point.

Perhaps if they take a drill to the roof of TSB arena the Pulse may yet avoid the wooden spoon.
