Netball battle enters crucial stage

Monday August 28, 2017 Written by Published in Netball

The Rising Stars 19 and under Arorangi Flames took on the TKV Red Angels in the wild, wild West on Thursday, with the 2016 champion Flames burning past the Red Angels 85 to 12.

 

The Rising Stars 15U champion Flames had a bye.

Today, Avatiu Dragonflies and Titikaveka Pearls will host Ngatangiia-Matavera Seagalz and Tupapa Maraerenga Panthers, respectively, at their village courts starting at 12pm.

At the Swamp in town, the highlight will be between the Future Stars 12U Avatiu Dragonflies versus Ngatangiia Seagalz.

They were neck-and-neck in the first round, with both teams undefeated and drawing against each other.

The SeaGalz continue their undefeated run, but Avatiu will work hard to gain the upper hand as the second round wraps up next week and teams head to the Knockouts at the BSA.

On the south side, Titikaveka Pearls take on the fierce Tupapa Panthers.

Titikaveka’s Rising Stars 15U went down to the Panthers by a mere four points in the first round match-up, and their strong showing and win against Avatiu last week may see them top the Panthers if the Pearls can keep them at bay.
