Tupapa too strong

Monday 21 May 2012 | Published in Regional


Tupapa dominated the Raemaru Park netball courts on Saturday when they were hosted by the Arorangi club.

Tupapa won all their games in Arorangi proving they are a club to reckon with this season, however games were hard fought in Arorangi where they are are no less passionate about their netball. In the premier grade, Tupapa were just too strong –taking home a convincing 63-36 win over the Wild West ladies.

Back at the Telecom Sports Arena, Takuvaine played Avatiu and Titikaveka played Ngatangiia, however as the Ngatangiia club has no premier grade the Titikaveka Pearls had a rest day from the court.

After the Avatiu reserve grade throttled Takuvaine 73-23, the club’s premier grade had more of a battle but they were too strong for Takuvaine winning 53-35.

At Raemaru Park (Arorangi vs Tupapa) – Under 10- 4 vs 18, Under 12- 10 vs 18, Under 15-15 vs 18, Junior Open- 21 vs 29, Reserves- 26 vs 50, Premiers- 36 vs 63
