EXPERIENCE helped CBM I to snatch a late win over Lomaiviti Grads in the NewWorld Suva Netball Association super grade final at the National Netball centre in Laucala yesterday.

The Unaisi Rokoura-coached CBM I defeated Lomaiviti Grads 44-43 in the extra-time play to retain the main prize.

Lomaiviti Grads led by national skipper Matila Waqanidrola were in a lead by four points after the third quarter but CBM I which also had the services of Maria Lutua, Unaisi Rauluni, Filo Korovulavula and Lusi Robanakadavu managed to crawl back to tie and win the game in the extra time.

Competition coordinator Tanya Vatubua said the final was an exciting clash.

"CBM I played with experience and that made the difference in the end. It was a great defence from the team led by Filo Korovulavula who played an excellent game with total control and cool head."

Vatubua said they had named a Suva team that had started preparing for the national competition.
