NAMATAKU won the Kumar Shield Challenge in the Navosa Netball Association after beating Viti Mining 21-20 with a golden shot last Saturday.

It was Namataku that led the first quarter 4-3 and then opened a 11-8 lead at half-time but Viti Mining clawed their way back to draw the third quarter 14-all after which both sides were locked 18-all at full-time.

At the end of extra-time, the scores were locked at 20-all and a golden shot ensured Namataku victory.

Association president Judy Kumar said Namataku had the services of former Fiji reps Elenoa Vatureba and Litia Vatureba, Unaisi Qivi and Viti Mining had players such as Lanieta Draunibalawa, Luisa Lewelewe and Adialesi Kurikaba.

Kumar said they were looking forward to a good outing at the Inter-District Championships in Lautoka later in the year.

"The final rounds of trials will be held this Saturday and we look forward to see Nasaunivalu I challenge against Namataku," Kumar said.

"This week we are on round six and on July 12 is our quarter-finals. July 19 is our provincial games and July 26 will be our Inter club competition.

"On August 2 we will get our Navosa squad for yo yo test and fitness test and on August 9 we will have our warm up match with the USP Men and USP Women team and also have our semi-finals and finals."

Kumar has urged business houses to support the association for the IDC.
