The opening quarter saw some amazing communication and passes from the Yellows, but the Boltz got a head start with some great shots.
Yellows eventually made some great progress in the second quarter, finding themselves only three points behind due to some brilliant attacking in the D.
But Boltz managed to stay ahead, although a third quarter surge by Yellows saw them close the gap further thanks to some incredible shooting.
The great rhythm found by Yellows in the third quarter put them only two points behind and in the last quarter, both sides picked up the pace as every Yellows player worked hard in closing the gap to just a point.
However, time ran out on Yellows it what was a very positive game where the Tulips side worked welltogether to find a brilliant rhythm.
Freya Davis was voted players' and umpire's player of the match.
