Central, NDC battle for gold in netball competition


IT will be a Southern region affair in the netball competition when undefeated Team Central take on NCD in the 2017 BSP PNG Games gold medal play-off
today at San Remo Stadium in Kimbe.
Competition manager Annie Iammo confirmed last night that Central would play NCD for gold while defending champions, Morobe have been relegated to the bronze play off against the surprise pack of the PNG Games, host West New Britain.
“Central has been undefeated in the pool match and will line up against NC,” she said.
The bronze medal play-off is revenge match for Morobe as West New Britain dented their gold medal hopes when they upset them 17-15 in their pool match.
Iammo commended the WNB netball team for their outstanding performance against some of the netball strongholds such as Team NCD and Central.
She was pleased with the standard of netball from Highlands teams despite not getting much support from other established associations like Port Moresby, Poreporena, Hiri, Lae and Hiri.
Iammo is appealing to all netball followers to turn up to watch the gold medal playoff.
