THE Fiji Pearls kept their winning run intact with a hard fought 50-46 win over Samoa yesterday at the Pacific Netball Series in Cook Islands.

Fiji carried on its momentum from their 59-36 thrashing of the host on Tuesday but was made to sweat it out for the win.

Pearls coach Julie Hoornweg said her players stepped up to the mark to deliver an above par performance.

"Well, Samoa has players from Australia and New Zealand which means their players are very strong," she said.

"But our girls played quality and controlled netball which is something we had been working on for a while now."

Fiji faces Papua New Guinea at 4.45pm today and Hoornweg said they were looking forward to another tough game.

"Well, PNG had a win today over the Cook Islands so they are also on track.

"It won't be easy so we will prepare for them accordingly."

Hoornweg said it was good news none of the players were carrying injuries and they would all be gunning for a starting spot for today's game.
