Sparks fly as Deans zeroes in for the final

LOSING twice in the zone competition is history.

That is how the Lelean Memorial School under-18 side approaches its Coke Zero Deans semi-final duel with traditional opponent, Queen Victoria School today.

The two Eastern schools met twice during the zone competition where the Victorians ended up winning both games.

But this afternoon's clash at 2.30pm at the ANZ Stadium is what matters for the Davuilevu gladiators. Losing is not an option this time.

"We've lost to them twice during the zone competition," school principal Ledua Colati said. "That is not going to stop us."

"We have not won the Deans at this U18 level so we will try our best."

Colati added the players had prepared well for the anticipated clash.

"Right now, the morale of the team is perhaps the best. The boys are prepared to take on QVS. We have done our little homework in the week and we're looking forward to the game."

And Colati adds, "It is important for his side to take available points when it matters."

He said kickers do win games in big matches.

"Yes, we believe that any points must be taken when its available. We cannot afford to let go of those opportunities."

LMS lost its previous encounter with QVS on penalties.

Meanwhile, in the feature game, Ratu Kadavulevu School battles defending champions Ratu Navula College at 3.50pm.
