The Kia Kaha Blues basketball team is one step away from winning the girls Kam Pacific Basketball Championship title.
Led by national reps Camari Ravai and Estelle Kainamoli, the girls from St Joseph’s Secondary School hopes to be the first team to claim the title.
They defeated Lions 25-24 in the elimination round today but knows the job is far from done.
The teams will meet again in the final tomorrow and Kainamoli says it will be a different ball game altogether.
“Since it’s the final, everybody’s level of energy will be different, everyone will be giving their best so I guess tomorrow’s final will be tough and they’ll bring it on against us.”
Captain Ravai is counting on the bond they share to help them win the title.
“The bond in the team is strong especially with the number of senior girls in the team so I know we can do it as it is our final year.”
Kia Kaha Blues will once again clash against the Lions in the final tomorrow at the Yat Sen Secondary School Hall.
