Maciu Malo
Tuesday, July 08, 2014

THE Yasawa High School under-17 team upset its U19 side 14-13 to win the Tabuqali netball competition at Somosomo Village in Yasawa yesterday.

Tough defender Nainasa Ranadi was a pillar of strength for the U17 side tussling against her senior opponents.

Ranadi was rock solid in defence giving her team the much needed possession to capitalise on.

The side displayed wonderful combination to deny their U19 team the victory.

Goal Attack Kalesi Yalataki also provided the much needed spark in the front scoring some magnificent goals for her team.

The side pressurised their opponents throughout the game to win the tournament.

Coach Maria Koliavu commended her netters for their effort.

She said the players were determined to win the game.

"The girls played extremely well pressuring the U19 players in all facets of the game," said Koliavu.
