VETERAN Ernest Coffin guided Lautoka White Sharks to victory at the Lautoka Hockey Association five-a-side competition at Nadovu Park on Saturday.

The White Sharks finished the men's division round robin competition with two wins and a draw.

Nadi Alfa was second while Lautoka General was third.

Nadi Turbo captained by Rukh Pickering won the women's division with two wins. Nadi Lighting Kerryanne Candy was second while Tokalau Jaguar was third.

Tournament co-ordinator Fergus Underwood said it was an inaugural five-a-side event.

"It has been hard for the clubs to assemble players for the full code, so we decided to introduce the abbreviated code and received overwhelming response," he said.

"With this we are helping our Western girls who are trialling for a spot in the Fiji team for the Olympic Youth Games in August.

"The game is played on a smaller pitch. It is faster and exciting. It requires more skill to control the ball.

"The talent here is amazing. We got the youths occupying their time training and have many secondary school students playing the sport."

Lautoka hockey will hold a junior clinic at Nadovu Park next Saturday.
