Lautoka won the B Division final of the Digicel/Punjas National Championship last Saturday.

Lautoka edged Suva 28 – 27 for the title. Suva, one the other hand, defeated Nasinu 56 – 47 in the A Division final while in the Under-21 final, Suva edged Lautoka 27-26.

Lautoka coach Torika Butani said she was proud of their achievement.

“We lost to Suva in our pool match, but I kept telling the girls that we have to win. It was a do-or- die situation.

“I kept reminding them the Suva team was beatable.”

She said playing on home ground gave them an added advantage.

“The support that was coming from fans encouraged the girls and we owed it to them,” she said.
