The NEWWORLD IGA Suva Netball Association quar­terfinals in the Super divi­sion saw USP Mermaids causing a major upset after edging CBM One-37-36 last Saturday at the Na­tional Netball Centre.

In the other quarterfinals, Tagi­moucia Flames thumped Congo Women, 68-32, Lomaiviti Black won by default and Wardens de­feated Grasshoppers Gold 36-25.

Suva Netball Association presi­dent Gabriel Qoro said CBM has always qualified for the top four in the past 15 years and the loss shows the level of competition.

Qoro added the committee is hav­ing a hard time selecting team to represent Suva for the national championship.

“There were a lot of ups and downs during the competition but this has shown the preparation done by teams,” Qoro said.

“Right now we are in the process of selecting our teams for the na­tional championship but the aim is to select players at lower grades.

“The officials are having a hard time finalising the final team due to the intensity of the competi­tion.”

The semifinals will be held this Saturday and the final on July 28 at the National Netball Centre.
