Marist starts on high

LAST year's runner-up in the under-19 grade, Marist Brothers High School made a good start in the Fiji Secondary School's Hockey Association (FSSHA) national finals with a 3-0 win over Tilak High School.

Defending champions in the under-19 girls competition Levuka Public were not so lucky as they drew 0-all with Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College at the National Hockey Centre in Suva.

FSSHA president Immanuel Prasad said it was a slow start to the tournament but expected competition to be tough from today until the finals tomorrow.

"Games were really interesting despite the low scores," he said.

"The slow start could be because of the fact that all the other school apart from Suva schools play on grass turfs.

"On this synthetic turf at Suva, the ball runs much faster which is one of the reasons for the low scores."

He said games today and tomorrow would be much faster and interesting because teams would be used to the turf.

Yesterday's morning results:

U16 Girls: STHS 2 SJC 1, ACS 1 SJSS 1, SVC 0 LPS 0, BMS 2 NHS 0,

U16 Boys: SVC 1 CSS 0, NHS 1 LPS 0, SJC 0 STHS 2, MBHS 2 LPS 0

U19 Girls: SSKMC 0 ACS 1, SJC 0 GHS 0, LPS 0 SSKMC 0

U19 Boys: THS 0 MBHS 3, CSS 0 NHS 1, SVC 1 THS 0

Games were still underway when this edition went to press.
