KNOCKOUT champs Essendon failed to show up at the Nadroga Volleyball Association mini-knockout on Monday and this allowed Salad Bowl to walk away with the Kumar Trophy and $50 prizemoney.

Essendon was to face knockout runners-up Salad Bowl of Navosa in the challenge match to determine who would take the title, however, game official Judy Kumar said the champs lost the match by default.

Former Natabua High School sprinter Nemani Naitonicagi was the toast for the Salad Bowl side as he helped the team beat 7up 3-2 (15-9, 13-15, 15-12, 13-15, 15-9) in the final at Lawaqa.

"Captain Nemani was the standout player and he was supported by Waisake Kunanitu, Mosese Tui and Saula Qivi," Kumar said.

"In the Women's competition, Nahehevia overcame Salad bowl in the last round and both teams were awarded cash prizes."

7up will now challenge Salad Bowl for the Kumar Trophy at Waicoba grounds in Navosa at 4pm today.

Kumar said they would now focus on preparing for the Western Rally which is scheduled for next month.
