WHEN Team Cakaudrove arrived in Lautoka for the primary schools netball tournament, they only had one thing in mind.
This was to beat one of the big teams like Lautoka or Suva.
Their wish was granted when the teams U12 grade edged Suva Blues 13-10 in the finals yesterday.
It was all smiles as the girls basked in the newfound glory.
Team president Ruci Matanabula said the victory was dedicated to the supporters who had contributed so much to their win.
"All our expenses combined, it billed to $20,000 and this wasn't an easy sum to raise," she said.
"Coming to a tournament like this, we knew everyone had to be prepared and pitch in for the girls and now, we are taking the under-12 trophy to Cakaudrove for the very first time.
"There is so much excitement within the team camp and everyone is overjoyed at this historic win.
"It's really a blessing to have the girls come to such a competition and walk away winners."
