Mixed results for Marama Vou in NZ

August 21, 2018 12:02 am

A combined Pacific Island netball team have secured their first victory at the Super Club tournament in New Zealand this morning.

Marama Vou, which brings together players from Fiji, Samoa and New Zealand, fought back from a seven goal deficit at three quarter time to defeat the University of Western Scotland Sirens 60-57.

The Pacific team led by two goals at the end of the first quarter but trailed at half and three quarter time before staging a dramatic surge in the final fifteen minutes.

Coach Vicki Wilson says the team fell away during the middle periods but the two-point shot meant they were always a chance.

“In the last quarter we certainly came steam-rolling home and the two point shots were just incredible by Alyssa-Jean (Savelio from Samoa) so she really did put us in great position. But the composure all the whole way through, particularly in that last quarter when we were under so much pressure.”

The Vicki-Wilson-coached side lost its first match to NSWIS Australia 71-51 and then beat UWS Sirens 60-57 yesterday.

Marama Vou will face New Zealand’s Central Pulse in their final group at 6.40pm today.
