New Zealand dominated the first half with Samantha Harrison scoring a double in her 100<sup>th</sup> international.<br>
<br>
The Kiwis continued to create chances in the second half but weren’t able to trouble the scorers again with Malaysia lighting up the board 10 minutes from fulltime.<br>
<br>
Black Sticks assistant coach Sean Dancer said it was pleasing to close the series positively.<br>
<br>
“We are happy to finish with a win, but needed to score a few more goals from the amount of opportunities we created.<br>
<br>
“Malaysia defended well in the second half and we needed to execute better in a congested attacking third.<br>
<br>
“Overall this series has been a great learning experience and development opportunity for our group. Stratford has been a great host and we would like to thank everyone for their support.”<br>
<br>
New Zealand conclude the five test series with four wins and one narrow loss.<br>
<br>
The Black Sticks Women vs Malaysia series is proudly supported by the Taranaki Electricity Trust (TET).<br>
