Victory at Garvey Park ensures Macuata a top spot

Maciu Malo
Sunday, July 27, 2014

MACUATA breathed a sigh of relief after a narrow 19-18 win over Tavua at Garvey Park yesterday.

The Northerners who were on the verge of playing in the promotion-relegation rose to the occasion and delivered the goods to upset Tavua on their home turf.

The win has cemented Macuata's spot in the major division for next season after Lautoka's 14-36 loss to Nadi yesterday.

Tavua secretary Cabe Kotoimakogai admitted the visitors were hungry for a win.

"Macuata played their hearts out resulting in the win," he said.

"They played in the promotion relegation last year and I think they do not want to be in the same situation again this year.

"In fact they were hungry for a win."

Kotoimakogai said Tavua players had themselves to blame for the loss.

"I think we gave the game away.

"Macuata forced us to commit unforced errors and they capitalised on our mistakes.

"Our decision making also contributed to the loss but I thank the boys for their effort."

He said the side had improved compared to last year's performance.

"Overall the boys have improved compared to last year.

"We have identified our weaknesses and we will work hard to improve for the best next season," he added.
