The shooters can officially claim superiority over the defenders in this year's trans-Tasman netball league.

The sixth year of the competition has produced a record number of goals.

So far, 7236 have been slotted in the 65 regular season matches, 99 clear of the previous season record set in 2009, which also included the three playoff games.

Round 14 (563), round 10 (569) and round 13 (575) of this season have been the three highest scoring rounds in the history of the competition.

Individually, the Southern Steel's Jamaican import, Jhaniele Fowler, slotted a whopping 666 goals at an average of 51.2 a game, breaking the previous best mark of 574 by fellow countrywoman Carla Borrego, of the Adelaide Thunderbirds, in 2010.

Another Jamaican, Romelda Aiken, of the Queensland Firebirds, has 551 and needs just seven in tonight's minor semifinal against the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Magic to become the first player to reach 3000 in the competition.
