Redemption time

Emoni Narawa
Sunday, July 27, 2014

"THE road to redemption is just starting now".

That is the message from the Lelean Memorial School camp as it continues its thirst to win its first ever Coke Zero Deans under-18 trophy.

Yesterday, the boys from Davuilevu defeated Marist Brothers High School 30-22 during their quarter-finals to set up a semi-final duel with arch rival Queen Victoria School.

LMS principal Colati Ledua congratulated his players for dethroning the Southern Zone champions. LMS finished as the third seeded team from the Eastern zone.

Ledua said MBHS played a grand game.

"We must pay respect for a very good game given to us by Marist," he said.

"We came in as underdogs and to beat Marist is a huge achievement, they're a strong team indeed."

He said the goal was to end their Deans drought in the U18 category.

"We have not won the Deans trophy in this new age-group, the U18 category," he said.

"The last time we won the Deans was in 2010 when it was still competed FOR in the U19 grade and since then we've being trying so hard.

"We have never won the Deans in the U18, we have been trying our best for the last two years but the road to redemption is just starting now."

He said playing QVS would be a huge task on the shoulders of his boys. QVS had twice beaten LMS during its Eastern zone competition.

"QVS has beaten us twice but that will not deter us from giving our best shot against them in the semi-final."
