Komo eyes spot in Easter cricket

THE Lau Conference qualifiers kicked off in style at Albert Park in Suva yesterday.

In the opening game, Komo made their presence felt with a victory over Oneata.

Out of the six participating teams, only three will qualify for the National Cricket Easter Championship later this month.

If Komo continues its winning run throughout this week, they will be in a better position to book a spot at the Easter Championship.

Last week, the side received a timely boost in preparation for its qualifiers when Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama gave some cricket gear to them.

Komo cricket manager Pauliasi Tuiafata said they were grateful for the gifts and that it would go a long way in helping them in their efforts to win the Crompton Cup.

"This is a great help to us and we thank the Prime Minister for giving us the gear," he earlier stated in a press statement after the donation.

"Our boys are training hard for the competition and this will really help us."

Other teams such as Lakeba One, Lakeba Two, Ono-i-Lau and Moce are the other participating teams in the qualifiers.
