SWAMI Vivekananda College (SVC) created history by winning the Bhasin Cup for the first time at the Natabua High School ground in Lautoka yesterday.
The Nadi school pulled off a surprise 2-1 victory over Saint John's College of Ovalau during the boy's Under-19 Fiji Secondary Schools Hockey Association 11 a-side final.
The match was decided on penalty strokes after both teams were locked scoreless after the mandatory period and extra time.
In the semi-finals, SVC accounted for Central College while Saint John's College beat Natabua High School.
Defending champions Marist Brothers' High School was bundled out in pool play.
Saint Joseph's Secondary School successfully defended the Westmere Cup. The side won the girl's final beating hosts Natabua High School 3-2.
The match was also decided on penalty strokes after both teams failed to score during the mandatory period and extra time.
Saint Joseph's Secondary School vice principal Luisa Kamelio said their girls showed a lot of commitment during the tournament. She said beating the hosts was the icing on the cake.
Kamelio revealed that her players participated in the weekly Suva club competition.
"We are very excited about the win," Kamelio said. "We have managed to defend the title. The girls have shown a lot of commitment towards the tournament.
"They trained very hard from the beginning of the term. They are used to the grass turf as they play at the Cathedral grounds.
"They have also been participating in the Suva club competition. The girls are committed to hockey and academic activities as well. There are potential future national reps in the team." A total of 12 schools participated in the girl's competition while eight schools featured in the boy's competition.
