All-rounder Shanel Daley and off spinner Anisa Mohammed added 45 valuable runs for the ninth wicket, the highest partnership in the game, to push their side past 200.
Medium-pacer Tremayne Smartt then shocked the New Zealand top order with sharp, late in-swing.
Key Kiwi batsman Sophie Devine was handed a shocker of an lbw decision off a thick inside edge.
Suzie Bates hit 30, but there were few other key contributions as the Kiwis went upder by 48 runs.
West Indies 207 for 9 (Taylor 49, Daley 37, Nielsen 3-27) beat New Zealand 159 (Priest 36*, Bates 30, Smartt 3-39) by 48 runs
