Force wins first game

CAPITAL Force recorded a major win in the Digicel Punjas Netball Super League at the Vodafone Arena in Suva yesterday.

The side defeated Stallion Starlets 67-29 in the second round of the match.

Capital Force is coached by former national netball under-21 coach Filomena Korovulavula.

Korovulavula said she was happy with her team’s performance.

“It was just a start to the season and it was a good start since we were the runners-up last year,” she said.

“We have a lot of young players and it is a good buildup for the future. The team from Nadroga was a good team and they gave us a tough game and I am happy with my young girls.

“Stallion Starlets were a tough team and the level of the fitness was same compared to other teams since most of us we are not training together as a team, but we will work out on our fitness for next week’s matches.”

Capital Force had national team players Lydia Panapasa, Talei Waqainabete and Merelita Waqanidrola.

“We also had young players in the Capital Force who played in the Suva under-17 team and by playing in the league they would be able to keep up their confidence in future,” Korovulavula said.

“We are confident to win the title again since we had already won twice.”
