Defending champions Titikaveka are on course to retain the Rarotonga Netball Club competition premier title despite forfeiting their matches held outside of the Bluesky Sports Arena (BSA).

 

In the semifinals last week, the side defeated Takuvaine 56-55 in a close tussle at the sports arena in Nikao.

Takuvaine finished the preliminary round of the competition on top without a loss.

Titikaveka managed only two points after it decided to forfeit their matches scheduled outside of BSA.

The side finished on third spot and took on the top finisher Takuvaine in the semis.

In the other semifinal, Arorangi and Avatiu also had a close battle. Arorangi eventually sneaked ahead with a 63-61 win.

Meanwhile the open 1 and 2 finals will be held tonight at the BSA, starting at 5.30pm.

Avatiu will take on Takuvaine in the open 2 final followed by the open 1 showdown between Tupapa and Takuvaine.

All clubs are requested to make sure that their players/umpires/benches are at the venue on time.

The clubs who were presented the senior open trophies last year are also asked to return it to the officials today for presentation following the finals tonight.       - RK
