Shine On beats Ferns

Maciu Malo
Monday, July 28, 2014

KBL Shine On maintains its unbeaten run in the Lautoka netball super premier competition with a 33-12 win over Blue Ferns at the Lautoka multi-purpose court on Saturday.

The side bounced back from their 21-all draw against Lomaiviti earlier in the week to outsmart the experienced Blue Ferns outfit.

Natabua High School students Vani Navosailagi and Sereana Maragi were instrumental in their team's win.

Maragi was rock solid in defence while sharp-shooter Navosailagi made no mistake on the opposite end scoring crucial goals for her team.

The duo combined well with former national under-21 rep Arieta Luvu to keep their hopes of winning the second round competition alive.

The fitness and combination of the Shine On players separated them from their opponents resulting in their success.

Meanwhile, in another interesting clash Natabua humbled the high flying Fidelity Royal Army Wives 29-27.

Natabua skipper Rigieta Kumar Lualala superbly led her young side to dethrone one of the top teams in the competition.

The Taveuni lass was well supported by Jasper Williams High School student Samipilly Nakalevu and twin sisters Nina and Finau Vuetibau to deny their opposition the victory.
