Northland wins in Ovalau

OVALAU fell short of securing the maximum point win in yesterday's Skipper Cup match against Northland after going down to the visitors 3-7 at Nasau Park.

The host led 3-0 at the break but was unable to hold on to the narrow lead after Northland managed to score a try in the final quarter of the match to win the game.

Ovalau team manager Waisea Verenadau while conceding defeat said heavy rain spoiled their game plan.

He said the players were unable to maintain composure and heavy conditions made it harder for them to execute the game plan.

"But we are learning from the games we play. To lose closely against a team like Northland is an achievement in itself," Verenadau said.

"We hope to improve on in our next game against Lautoka."

Ovalau will host the Maroons in the upcoming round of the competition and Verenadau is requesting for the usual support from their fans.
