HOHOLA Flies dethroned reigning champions Sisters 10-4 in the Port Moresby Women’s Rugby League grand final at the Lloyd Robson oval yesterday.

The win added on to the Flies minor premiership.

It was the player of the match performance by lock Waiks John that sparked the Hohola girls to notch 10 points in the second half after trailing 4-0 in the first 30 minutes. 

For her efforts she was awarded K100 to cap off a great season.

Fullback Bridget Antipas crashed over near the uprights to level the scores 4-4 but the easy conversion attempt sailed wide.

Flies final four-pointer was scored by inside centre Naomi Alapi who barged over the goal post and lock John slotted the extras to lead 10-4.

The Lareva girls should have collected more points but were denied due to wrong options.

Rugby sevens representatives Yarowena Morofa at five-eighth, wingers Jill Yalom and Dulcie Bomai  combined with lock John to terrorize Sisters defence time and again. 

Sisters were first to draw blood when hooker Montex Pale crossed over near the sticks and with the easy conversion attempt missed they took that lead into the break.
