The Dig­i­cel Punja Su­per League Net­ball Se­ries went ahead de­spite poor weather con­di­tions at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka yes­ter­day. An hour’s de­lay was all it took as matches went ahead with West­ern Zeniths cam­paign to win the Se­ries got a fur­ther boost with a 38-34 win over Jisoko Plateaus.

Zeniths had the ser­vices of reli­able goal­keeper Alisi Naqiri and Baby Pearls goal shoot­ing ace Maliana Ru­si­vakula, skip­per Maria Ru­lase, Tarusila Saukuru and de­fender Ver­e­naisi Sawana. Plateaus led by goal shooter Una Rauluni and cen­tre Vaitai Waqatabu gave their all but fell short of reg­is­ter­ing a win. “This is the fourth round and we have won all our matches,” said Zeniths coach Lili Bainitabua “The girls have put on a won­der­ful per­for­mance and we have to work hard if we are to win all our games.” Bainitabua said although there were some chal­lenges faced by the play­ers in terms of trav­el­ling dis­tance, team work was what that kept them go­ing in all their games

“Some of the girls have just fin­ished ex­ams and they live in Ra, three girls in Nadi, but they come to Lau­toka twice and thrice in a week be­cause they are com­mit­ted to train­ing. “We train four times in a week be­cause we are out to achieve our goal. Some ar­eas we are go­ing to work on are in the shoot­ing area and mid court since we have won­der­ful and pow­er­ful defenders. We are go­ing to work on that as we look for­ward to our game next week.”

In other matches, Stal­lion Star­lets trounced Cen­tral Swifts 55-29 in a one-sided en­counter while de­fend­ing champs Cap­i­tal Force wal­loped Satel­lite Di­vas 59-20.
