Seniteteva stops Shine On

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, August 06, 2014

SENITETEVA netball defeated the high flying Shine On team 29-22 to lead the Lautoka netball association round two competition points table.

Jasper Williams High School student Kelera Nawai was in top form for the Nadi-based netters ending Shine On's unbeaten run in the competition.

The 16-year-old sharpshooter was outstanding helping her team to stamp its dominance in the competition.

Head coach Torika Butani said Nawai lived-up to the expectation required of her to deliver the goods for her team.

"Kelera really played well scoring 89 per cent of her attempted shots contributing to our win," she said.

"Also our defenders stood tall preventing our opponents to penetrate easily through our defensive line.

"We thought they (Shine On) would be competitive like they did in our earlier game.

"They were not strong as we expected."

Butani has urged her players to save the best for the last in their final game against Lomaiviti.

"We need to win against Lomaiviti to prove to everybody that we are the real champion as proven in the knockout competition," she said.

"We will not underestimate Lomaiviti but we will give our best shot to win the game."

The game between Seniteteva and Lomaiviti kicks off at the Lautoka multipurpose court at 5pm.
