Flames set to battle Panthers in 19U

Defending champions Arorangi Flames will be hoping to bounce back this weekend after making a losing start to their campaign in the Rising Stars Netball tournament last week.


In the round three competition today, the Flames 19-and-under team will take on the mighty Tupapa Maraerenga Panthers at Victoria Courts.

The Flames went down to last year’s runner-up Avatiu Dragonflies 55-43 at Avatiu courts last week.

The Mavis Teaurima-coached side will be hungry for a win to get their title defence campaign on track.

However, the Panthers will be no easy feat judging from their blockbusting performance last Saturday.

The team thumped Takuvaine Red Angels 85-22 in the premier 19-and-under grade at home in their opening match of the season, to emerge one of the top contenders for the Rising Stars Netball title.
