Special celebration for champs

Emoni Narawa
Thursday, April 24, 2014

THE champion Moce cricket team departed Suva yesterday for a long journey back to the island.

And already a traditional welcome awaits the 2014 LICI Easter tournament champions, the team officials confirmed to this newspaper.

"Celebration is still going on in Suva after our win on Monday," said Tataka Buadromo, the team co-ordinator.

"Last night (Tuesday night) we had a special farewell for the team at Tovata. The team is in joyful mood and we're making the best of it before we return home."

Moce defeated defending champions Suva Warriors by two wickets where the spectators witnessed some excellent bowling and fielding. Moce crashed the Capital City side for 99 runs in 35 overs.

Buadromo said the people back in the island were ready to host the team to a special traditional welcome and celebration.

"Already there are plans back in the island for a special celebration. This will be determined on our arrival. If we arrive on Saturday, we will have the celebration on Saturday, otherwise if we arrive on Sunday, then we'll have the celebration on Monday."
