THE Fiji Pearls remain unbeaten after day four of competition in the Pacific Netball Series (PNS) in Cook Islands.

Last night, the national side defeated Cook Islands 53-40 in the second round of the series.

In the opening round, the Julie Hoornweg-coached Fiji defeated the hosts 59-36, Samoa 50-46 and Papua New Guinea 59-49.

Today, defending champions Fiji will take on Samoa and a win over the neighbours will seal the PNS title for the Matila Waqanidrola-skippered side.

Waqanidrola, who was rested yesterday because of a niggling injury, thanked the supporters for rallying behind the team.

"In God we will love, honour and keep the faith, for we are the ruthless Fijians," she wrote on Facebook after the PNG game.

"Thank you Lord Jesus for the strength, power, endurance, and the great display of talent given by you and you alone.

"Fiji Pearls netball team gives you back the honour and glory to be yours and yours alone.

"To our dear fans, supporters, family and loved ones in Fiji, abroad and here in the Cook Islands, thank you so much for your prayers and thoughts."

In the other match played yesterday, Samoa defeated PNG 49-39 to remain in the hunt. The top two teamS will earn their spotS in the 2015 World Championship.
