SOLEVU Secondary School in Bua will have a reason to celebrate this week after it's under-17 and U18 teams won the Northern Secondary Schools Invitational 7s tournament at Labasa's Subrail Park over the weekend.

The boys from Cakaunitabua proved themselves in both the grades and kept the more than 1000 spectators on their feet with their skilful play and teamwork.

The school's U17 defeated neighbouring rivals Bua College 14-5 in the final while their U18 beat Labasa's All Saints Secondary School 26-0.

The boys from Solevu gave no chance to their opponents as they played their hearts out to win the two categories.

Supporters cheered them on and this was an added bonus to their performance on Saturday evening.

Coach and schoolteacher Jovesa Saqali said their nine weeks of training had finally paid off, something they were overjoyed about.

"We came here with a mission to win and we did it. I couldn't be more proud of the boys because they did their part well," he said.

"It was a tough competition but our boys were better even though they played against some of the best teams here in the North.

"The victory couldn't have been achieved if it wasn't for God.

"We thank Him for His blessings and also the principal for bearing with us and allowing us to train in school."

Saqali also conveyed their sincere gratitude to the members of the Parents and Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) for their undying support.

In the other matches, All Saints Secondary School beat Holy Family Secondary School in the U15 while Savusavu Secondary School thumped Holy Family in the U16.
