Seahawks fly high

MARIST Seahawks were crowned the champions of the Fiji Bitter Tribes Women's Competition after defeating Striders 29-24 at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Team coach Elenoa Kunatuba said preparations and sacrifices were all worth it.

"We started preparations way back in January and the girls have done their bit to this one. We lost last year to Fijiana and we promised ourselves we'll be back and win for sure this year. I also think the farewell bit pushed them to the limit."

Kunatuba also a former coach of the Fijiana team said that the girls defended well.

"We had a blunder. I thought this was a seven-minute half and when I did two changes the official told me that it was a ten-minute game per half. I had made two changes and then that was it the girls needed to sacrifice a little bit more and that's what they did, they defended and sacrificed today."

She dedicated the win to the women of the country as Fiji yesterday celebrated the International Women's Day.

"It's also women's day and we remember women in today's games. The girls going out there to play their hearts out is just the icing on the cake and I just want to thank them also for their teamwork and hard work. So congratulations to the girls and happy women's day.

"I wish the girls well and I wish them well and best of luck."
