Netball Proteas finished Fiji tour in Style


JOHANNESBURG – The Proteas netball team have gone from executioner to undertaker after they beat the Fiji Pearls by a record 47 goals on Friday.

Riding a wave of confidence, the South African women brushed the Islanders aside with an 83-36 victory to improve on the record winning margin they set against the Fijians only two days earlier.

In the first match of the series, they romped to a 41-point victory over the Pacific Islanders, drawing the curtain on a fruitful tour of Australasia and Fiji.

After the Wednesday’s brutal beating at the hands of the Proteas, Fiji put up a valiant fight in the opening half of the second match.

Wing defence Rochelle Loubser was a menace to Fiji, making a total of nine intercepts in the match.Star shooter Lenize Potgieter once again proved to be a powerhouse in South Africa’s performance. The pinpoint shooting Protea landed 56 of her 61 shots at goal, giving the visitors the extra edge in the circle.

The third quarter saw the teams add the same amount of points as they had in the second before the Proteas went into overdrive in the final period. The Proteas scored an impressive 23 points in the final quarter, while limiting the Fijians to five.
