Packed with five Fiji representatives for the Pasifika Netball Tournament in Auckland in October, the Nadi side was sure to take out the Under 13 title in Subrail Park, Labasa yesterday.

The win over Suva in the semi-final 9 – 5 boosted their morale.

But a determined Cakaudrove side deterred the jetsetters from winning.

Cakaudrove stood out as a more composed and structured team.

They led 6-5 at half-time and increased their lead by two at the final whistle 13 – 11.

The Nadi netters left the court in tears, but are determined to do better next year.

Coach UlamilaLagivalu admitted they were probably over-optimistic after the win against Suva.

She said they were left puzzled at some decisions made during the game regarding stepping.

“I think we need to update ourselves on the more recent rules of the game.”

Cakaudrove coach and school teacher SovaiaRamacake said they only had two weeks to prepare.

“We are thankful to the players, parents and supporters for the commitment.”

She said the same Cakaudrove team had won the Under 12 grade in Lautoka last year.

Results in finals:

Bowl: U9 Taveuni 7 Wainibuka 6, U10 Suva 6 Kadavu 1, U11 Macuata 12 Lautoka 1, U12 Tailevu 6 Ovalau 9, U13 Lautoka 11 Navosa 7, U14 Kadavu 12 Nadi 9
