It was the battle of the cities, as  Suva and Lautoka met in the final of the Digicel/Punjas National Netball Championship in Laucala yesterday.

Suva Netball Association dominated all  divisions winning the A and B and as well the U19 grades.

Bolstering the A teams were national reps Afa Rusivakula, Maria Lutua, Vaiti Waqatabu, Nina Cirikisuva and Losalini Tuifagalele who teamed up and thrashed the Lautoka side 55-36.

In another match Suva defeated Lautoka 38-19 in the B competition and again edged Lautoka 39-33 in the U19.

Suva Netball Association president Ruci Camaitoga was overwhelmed with the effort.

“It has been long since we won the tournament again, the hard work of the teams and the sacrifice of the coaches and managers has really paid off,” Camaitoga said.

“We proved ourselves to the other teams that we were desperate for victory.”

She said the national reps were a boost to the teams.

“We were so blessed and are so fortunate to have the national reps in the teams, their contribution led to our wins.

“It is the end of the league now next on our list is the Suva Businesshouse competition later in September.

“All teams that took part in the competition were very competitive and I thank them for the tough competition,” she said.

“We will be there next year to defend our titles again,” she said.

Results:

B Final.: Lautoka 19-38 Suva, U19 Final Suva 39-33 Lautoka,  A Final Suva 55-36.
