Komo faces uphill battle against Army

KOMO's promotion into the Suva Cricket Association premier division turned bitter sweet as they will face one of the toughest teams in the competition in its opening match this weekend.

The newly-formed club gained promotion after defeating Ono-i-Lau over the weekend and faces Army in the challenge match on Saturday at Albert Park in Suva.

The celebration was cut-short for Komo players as they have a huge hurdle to overcome against the military men.

After nine wins from nine games in the Senior-A competition in round one, Komo team manager Bola Colati said it would be a tough game for his boys.

"It is going to be our first game in the premier division," he said.

"We thought we'll be playing another team apart from Army. But we'll take on the challenge and not back down. We beat Ono-i-Lau in the promotion/relegation to be in this competition and we're not going to take this match lightly."

Colati said Army had been one of the dominant forces in the SCA weekly competition.

"Army is a tough team. It is not going to be easy for us but we're looking forward to it. We just have to play our normal cricket game and play like any other match. Already we have won nine games from nine matches and we're pretty happy with our achievement in the Senior-A level."

He said his side had trained well, polishing some of its moves, gearing up to the mouth-watering clash on Saturday.
