The schools participated in the opening round of the league competition at Nadovu Park in Lautoka on Saturday.

Saint Thomas High School, Central College and Tilak High School participated from Lautoka.

Swami Vivekananda College and Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College participated from Nadi.

Lautoka Secondary School Hockey Association president Makelesi Adireki-Mawi said the main purpose to hold the league competition was to give students more game time before the playoffs.

"The level of competition is getting tougher with many players showcasing good skills," she said.

"The main purpose of the league is to give the students more game.

"Lautoka is the current holder of the secondary school's Inter-District Championship title in both the girls and boys divisions.

"After Saturday's round of games, I'm confident that the players will achieve a lot by the end of the league and the playoffs.

"With more game time before the Tuckers Super 8 national tournament, the Western schools should have a great and successful hockey season."
