NAMATAKU held off a strong challenge from Nasaunivalu to successfully retain the Kumar Shield Challenge 17-15 in the Navosa Netball Association competition on Saturday.

With scores tied 3-all after the first quarter, the holders did just enough to pull away for 8-5 lead at half-time but the challengers didn't give up and came back to tie it at 11-all at the end of the third quarter.

Former Fiji rep Elenoa Vatureba with the help of renowned players such as Adi Fulori Sisina and Nanise Kuritove allowed Namataku to edge ahead and win the match.

Games co-ordinator Liviana Tora said they are looking forward to their last round of games on July 5 and the quarter-final on July 12 which would decide the Top 8 and the bottom four.

"Navosa Netball has 12 clubs this year and we are looking forward to the Inter-District Championship in Lautoka later in August," she said.

"July 19 is our Inter-Club competition knockout while on July 26 we will have Inter-Provincial games and on August 2 we will have our semi-finals and final and also have a warm-up match with the USP Men and Women."

Tora said they were looking for sponsors for the association since most of the players in their competition were unemployed.

Results: Namataku 18 Service Mix 15, Parkers 6 Viti Mining 7, Natuatuacoko 7 Keiyasi Blues 7, Service WBD over Saints, Greenman WBD over Water Lilly, Nasaunivalu II 12 Service 17
