Lelean under-18 out for redemption

LELEAN Memorial School under-18 side is on its road to redemption.

Last week, school principal Ledua Colati told Times Sport they were on their way to redemption.

And the side was living up to the words of their boss, yesterday as they edged Queen Victoria School 21-18 in their Coke Zero Deans semi-final at the ANZ Stadium.

LMS managed to overcome the Victorians during sudden death to book a spot in the final against Ratu Kadavulevu School.

It was the boot of ace kicker Lepani Moce that knocked off the former champions when both sides were locked 18-all after fulltime.

The fly-half earlier missed two penalties but stood up to the test when he was shouldered the responsibility of kicking off the tee, from a range of 30 yards off the goalpost.

He nailed the conversion slicing the uprights to send LMS through to the next stage final against RKS.

During the first period of sudden death, neither side scored a point after both teams were locked 18-all at full-time. QVS dominated possession and territory and looked to threaten the Davuilevu boys.

However, being calm and collected LMS led by their skipper and loosehead prop Eroni Cama Mawi bounced back in style during the second period of sudden death.

QVS looked rattled in defence and their players who came off the bench, failed to lift the tempo, unlike the Davuilevu boys.

LMS scored two tries from hooker Vuniai Mokalou and Onisivoro Sukani. Moce nailed two penalties while Aminiasi Radrodro kicked a conversion.

QVS's scored three tries, including a brace from inside centre Edward Sawailau. Ratu Kinivuwai Veitata nailed a conversion.
