Defaults disrupt v'ball weekly meet

ONLY four games were played in the Suva Volleyball Association competition yesterday.

This was after only six teams turned up for the FBC-sponsored weekly competition at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts in Laucala Bay.

Competition official Ratu Iliesa Raketekete said they could not do much but organise games for the teams which turned up.

"In the Super Premier competition, Marist won 3-0 over Cakau and then they won by the same score over Lions and then Marist won the rest of their games by default," he said.

"In the Premier competition, Jammers lost 1-3 to Sharks and then lost 0-3 to Tamavua Celtics in the Premier challenge match.

"This means Tamavua Celtics hold onto the Premier challenge title for the next two weeks."

He said they did not have any games for the women's competition.

"The women's teams turned up late and only one team came with their full set of players so we had to cancel their games."

Meanwhile, Raketekete has asked the teams competing in the Vanua Challenge to attend training from tomorrow.

"Training will be at the FMF Gymnasium and we are requesting all those teams that have qualified for the Vanua Challenge to be present by 5pm.

"The Vanua Challenge is next weekend and we would need to be ready for it."
