Fiji - Guam 95:58
Fiji National team won the Gold medals at the South Pacific Games in Samoa. They defeated Guam in the Final game yesterday to claim the title. Fiji completed the tournament undefeated winning all 7 games. The title decider was highly anticipated as the teams met earlier in the competition and Fiji managed to celebrate a narrow 71:70 win. So the final clash was thought to be a fierce tight battle of well-matched squads.
However Fiji never allowed Guam to produce any sort of intrigue. They took control over the game early on and dominated the court in the first quarter. Fiji players built up a 19:14 lead. Guam could not stay close in the second quarter and bunch of missed shots saw them fall to 22:38 distance from Fiji at halftime. The change in the game was not spotted after the break. Fiji easily overcame Guam defense and piled up their lead. They reached a 65:31 mark after three quarters and already started to celebrate victory. Guam nailed as many as 27 points in the fourth stanza but it never helped them to cut the deficit and Fiji became the new South Pacific Games champions.
Laisiasa Puamau led Fiji with 17 points. Frank Saketa contributed 16 points, while Adrian Bossley had 13 points for the winners. Andrew Borja scored 11 points for Guam. Chris Fernandez and Edward Calvo netted 9 points apiece in defeat.
Fiji shot 54% of field goals and 46% from charity stripe. Guam lacked accuracy from the field posting just 35% and converted 45% of free throws. Fiji pulled down massive 63 rebounds allowing their opponents to grab just 32 boards.

Fiji: Laisiasa Puamau 17, Frank Saketa 16, Adrian Bossley 13
Guam: Andrew Borja 11, Chris Fernandez 9, Edward Calvo 9
