Komo faces biggest challenge

KOMO faces their first real challenge in the Suva Cricket Association competition today when they take on Army.

They will challenge Army for the Perpetual Cup and it would be Komo's biggest match to date since their debut in the competition last season.

Association vice president Alex Konrote said both sides are unbeaten in the premier competition since round two began three weeks ago.

"Since Komo won the promotion/relegation and moved up the premier grade from the A-grade, they have won all their matches," he said.

"Traditional premier grade giants Army and Yadrana are unbeaten but nobody expected the newcomer to the grade, Komo, to also remain unbeaten.

"You could say they have won their premier grade matches by upset since they are new to the competition but they have been consistent and hard working."

Konrote said defending champions Army are still favourites to retain the title.

"Army is a champion side and have what it takes to retain the title.

"But they have never faced Komo in the past so they don't know what will they be facing tomorrow (today) and that is Komo's advantage."

In the other premier matches, Yadrana will face the BSP Titans, Westpac Sarafui will take on Moce I and Moce II will be up against Covenant Brothers.

A-grade leaders Nasaqalau will battle against Oneata while Police face Suva Grammar School Old Boys.
