LOMAIVUNA created a new chapter of history when its under-19 side beat Queen Victoria School 17-12 during their quarter-final clash at Bidesi Park yesterday.

Lomaivuna defied the odds as ace kicker Onisimo Daku punished QVS's ill discipline, nailing four penalties.

Josese Degei scored the only try for QVS, the second was a converted penalty try. Iowane Bakicakau scored the winning try for Lomaivuna.

Lomaivuna coach said Sakeasi Muakalou said his boys played their hearts out.

"I take my hats off to the boys for beating QVS," he said.

"I think this is the first time for us to win against QVS at this playoff stage and all credit to the boys for playing with so much courage."

He said QVS had its reputation as the one of the heavyweights in secondary school rugby.

"We came here to prove our worth as well and I thank the Almighty for giving us the strength to be victors today (yesterday)."

Muakalou said they needed to rectify their weaknesses before the semi-finals next week.

"It's going to be the first year for us to reach the semi-finals, we're excited about it but we need to go back and improve from our weaknesses."

Lomaivuna faces Lelean Memorial School in next week's semi-final.
