Marshall crowned netball queens in GNK tournament in Hula

first_imgNetball BY SIMON KESLEP Gulo-vui sisters Natalie and Talima displayed yet again another premiership title winning performance to see Team Marshall crowned the 2020 GNK Marshall Netball tournament queens in Hula, Central Province. However, it was not an easy walk in the park for Marshall to come out victorious and claim their 8th premiership title. Giving them (Marshall) a good run for their money in the final was one of the tournament’s newcomers Keapara. The title win also sees Marshall surviving the two-day netball fest undefeated. The Gulo-Vui sisters’ impressive comeback performance especially in midcourt and under the hoop in the second half was decisive in the win. Talima directed plays and was also vocal in sparking up her fellow team mates both in defensive and attacking plays. Under the hoop and slotting the much anticipated points for Marshall were Natalie Gulo-Vui and Joan Oki to see them claim the five points (23-18) difference win over Keapara. In the opening half, both Natalie and Joan could not find their pace upfront as they were well contained by Keapara’s defenders in the likes of Lesieli Vele and Rina Ila. Keapara took hold of the first half and led 12-8 at halftime through the successful and dominating goal shooting performance by Veavu Ila and Nosa Tino with assistance coming from Aileen Vala at midcourt. In the second stanza, Natalie and Joan, including the team effort and their supporters cheering paved way for a much improved effort to claim the win. “Pretty proud of our performance given we’ve been working hard at training for two weeks and happy to get the grand final win back. Unfortunately we lost it (grand final) last year and it is good to get it back this year. “It was a good comeback in the second half. We were pretty down in the first few minutes but then we started talking and it was good to get the win back. We just told ourselves at halftime just to put our shots up because we were not pretty accurate in the first half,” said Natalie who was awarded as the grand final’s best shooter. The grand final’s best midcourt was Talima Gulo-Vui, best defender Rina Ila of team Keapara while the most valuable player/Jenny Pokana award recipient was Keapara’s Lesieli Vele. Tournament awards recipients included Uve Noka (best shooter), Joy Ani and Silo Silo (best midcourt), La,a Iga (best defender), Gia Kopi (most valuable player), Iru Iga (player of the tournament), 12-year-old Wendy Geno (youngest player of the tournament), Joan Oki (sponsor’s choice award recipient) and Poerupu (best marching uniform).last_img read more
