SUVA District will be hoping to send its best three teams to the Fiji Secondary Schools Hockey competition next month.

After the completion of week one of playoff, the officials said it would be a good tussle and only the best would qualify for the national finals.

"We have started our Suva district play-off last Saturday and we're happy with the outcome of some game," Immanuel Prasad, the Fiji Secondary Schools Hockey Association president said.

"All teams have shown what they are capable of last week but we have a few more weeks before the national finals, so hopefully the best three teams will be selected."

Saint Joseph's Secondary School qualified as the top seeded team in the U16 and U19 grades last year while Marist Brothers High School was the best boys team in both grades.

MBHS and Cathedral Secondary School U16 sides have qualified to the national finals, MBHS, Gospel High School, CSS and Nabua Secondary School will fight for the three spots in the boys' U19 grade.

Adi Cakobau School, SJSS, Suva Grammar School and CSS are in contention for the U19 girls' division. Prasad said the play-offs would continue this week.

Meanwhile, Levuka Public School are the reigning champions for the U16 and U19 girls while MBHS rules in the U16 and LPS will defend the U19 title.
