Seniteteva shines in Lautoka netball knockout

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, June 10, 2014

SENITETEVA was crowned the new winner of the Lautoka netball knock-out competition beating Blue Ferns 11-10 in the final.

The Nadi-based side lost to Blue Ferns in the pool games but later turned the tables against the top Lautoka side in the final to stamp their dominance in the competition.

The experience of Fiji A reps Alisi Naqiri and Kelera Nawai boosted the morale of the Seniteteva players to win the title.

The side were rock solid in defence and ruthless in attack preventing Blue Ferns from winning the competition.

Seniteteva also had the services of former Fiji secondary school rep Alisi Galo who combined well with Naqiri and Nawai to defeat the Ferns.

Defending champion KBL Shine On was bundled out in the semi-final by Blue Ferns.

Lautoka netball secretary Kinisalote Drasuna said Seniteteva would be the team to watch this season.

"They have a good bunch of young players," she said.

"The side played magnificently throughout the competition enabling them to win their first ever Lautoka netball title."

She said Seniteteva was the lone side from Nadi to join the 18 teams affiliated under the Lautoka netball association.
