Lautoka volleyball finalists share top prizemoney

Maciu Malo
Sunday, January 26, 2014

THE finals of the Lautoka Volleyball Association knock-out competition between Knights and Skyhawks at Lautoka's Multi- purpose court was called off yesterday.

Tournament official Semisi Vunibola said both teams agreed to share the main prize-money becoming the joint winners of this year's knock-out competition.

He said time was not on their side since the court was booked by the Lautoka Basketbal Association.

"We didn't finish the game according to the time scheduled given to us but we are grateful that both teams have agreed to share the main prize-money," said Vunibola.

"Despite the disruption the competition standard was beyond our expectation.

"New talents were unveiled during the tournament and we were impressed with the skills showcased during the day.

"All participating teams gave their best but the class and the combinations of the two finalists separated from other teams."

Knights defeated a spirited Saffron team by two sets to one in the first semi-final before their Waiyavi neighbours Seahawks proved too strong against Tribe to win two straight sets in the other semi-finals.

Former national skipper Mesulame Metuisela was in top form for Saffron but failed to ignite his team against a powerful Knights outfit.

Vunibola said the best players from the knockout competition would carry Lautoka's hopes at the Western Rally tournament next weekend.
