THE Fergus Underwood-coached Mates team took out the Lautoka Hockey Association 7-a-side women's competition at the Nadovu ground yesterday.
The newly-formed Mates women's team defeated Blue Star 4-1 in the final on penalty strokes. Both teams were locked 1-all after the mandatory period.
Underwood was proud of his team's achievement.
He said some of the wives of the members of the Mates men's team were behind the establishment of their women's team. Underwood said they only had one week preparation.
"This is a very young team," Underwood said.
"But I'm impressed with how they have blended in such a short period of time. The players have a lot of potential but need to undergo more skills training."
Titans won the men's round one 7-a-side final. The side defeated Blue Star 1-0.
