THE Fiji under-21 netball team lost their second game against Samoa in Apia yesterday during their Pacific Netball Series curtain-raiser match.

Despite beating Samoa in their opening game on Tuesday, the home team bounced back to edge the visitors with four goals. Samoa now have one win and a loss and today's game will determine the winner.

The U21 who are building up to the World Youth Netball Championship trailed 7-13 after the first quarter.

Fiji made a strong comeback in the final quarter despite losing 34-28 in the third quarter.

National U21 administrator Joey Kalouvou said today's game would determine who wins the series.

"Tomorrow (today) is the decider. We shall be ready," Kalouvou said.

Meanwhile the Fiji Pearl national team played Cook Islands last night when this edition went to press. Fiji started their Pacific National Netball series campaign with a 59-45 win over Papua New Guinea.
