Saints nail Kooga

Maciu Malo
Monday, January 27, 2014

TILAK High School student Richard Daveyawa was the toast of the West Saints team as they defeated Kooga 31-26 in the Lautoka Basketball Association competition on Saturday.

The 18-year-old was a class above the rest and a thorn to the opposition scoring 16 points for his team.

He was tough in defence and lethal on attack scoring some breathtaking points for his team.

Daveyawa was ably supported by Saint Thomas High School student Asaeli Buresui to deny Kooga the win.

Kooga gave their best shot but it was not enough to win them the game against a young West Saints team.

West Saints coach Apisalome Daveyawa said his son (Richard) would be the player to watch in the future.

"I am happy with the performance of Richard likewise to the rest of the players who performed exceptionally well during the game.

"Richard dominated the game that enabled our team to defeat our opposition."

Daveyawa said the team was made up of secondary school players in Lautoka.

He said exposing school students in the club games would improve their skill.

"Our team is consisted of students from Tilak, Saint Thomas, Natabua and Ba Provincial School students," Daveyawa said.

"We want to develop these students to become better players in years to come and to be exposed to tough competition."
