WAIKATAKATA was crowned the Koicolo Cup champion after beating Parkers 15-13 in the final of the two-day tournament held at Draiba Village ground in Navosa on Thursday.

The Vatubalavu Village side withstood strong challenge from their fellow highlanders from Keiyasi to win the title.

Defence and well-connected passes made the work easier for the Waikatakata shooters to score crucial goals.

Parkers also had their moments with crafty Alisi Vatureba leading the charge.

Vatureba played a grand game for the Parkers but it was not enough to win her team the game.

Her hardwork was however rewarded when she was named the player of the tournament after the final.

Waikatakata defeated Naculava 15-14 in the semi-final while Parkers shrugged off a tough challenge from Nasaunokonoko to narrowly win the game 15-14.

"The standard of game displayed in the final was superb and it shows the commitment made by the players during training," he said.

"All they need is proper guidance and training to fine-tune their skills."

He added the Navosa the competition was a success and has set the platform for the upcoming netball club games.
