The highly competitive Rarotonga Netball Club Competition ended as expected on Saturday with a thrilling conclusion.
Titikaveka put on a brilliant performance to claim the Rarotonga Netball Club Competition premier title on Saturday.
The side defeated arch-rivals Avatiu 57-42 in an intense
final held at the National Sports Arena in Nikao.
The showdown got off to a tit-for-tat battle between the top
two teams in the division.
But Titikaveka bolstered by the return of Patricia Taea
proved too strong in their attack as they mounted pressure on Avatiu to force
errors and score points.
Avatiu was down by only five goals at the end of the opening
quarter before they succumbed to the pressure from an experienced Titikaveka
outfit. They took their opportunities but Titikaveka defended well and proved
lethal in attack.
Titikaveka had a whopping 83 attempt at goal and capitalised
on Avatiu’s errors and tips and intercepts.
