Leaders London Pulse sealed their 12th win in a row with a confident 71-53 win away at Celtic Dragons.

Missing star defender Funmi Fadoju, head coach Sam Bird was once again able to use the full compliment of her bench, including a debut for Jade Popoola as Pulse pushed past their opponents despite a tight opening quarter.

Dragons started strongly and quickly established a 6-3 lead but their momentum was soon halted by three scores on the spin from Pulse to level the scores. From this point onwards,  Pulse kept chipping away at the scores and slowly began to build a lead, and took a two-goal lead in at the end of the first quarter.

Dragons levelled the score again at the start of the second quarter but a turnover from Pulse allowed them to re-establish a two-goal cushion, which they soon stretched to six by half time.

Pulse continued to work together to force errors and capitalised from their gains. Dragons continued to contest for every ball, but were often thwarted by Pulse's defence from scoring off their pick-ups.

Despite Dragons getting tips, Pulse constantly fought to win ball back to stretch their lead out even further than it was the previous quarter, eventually finishing 71-53 to the good as they fine tune for the  Grand Final.
