Wake-up call for AD Patel

Maciu Malo
Friday, August 15, 2014

DEFENDING under-15 champion AD Patel College received an early wake-up call after their 0-1 loss to Labasa-based Gurunanak Khalsa College in Ba yesterday.

And the home team must beat Natabua High School and Vasist Muni College to keep their hopes alive of defending their title.

Team coach Moshin Hussain Begg is confident his troops will bounce back in their remaining pool games.

He said the side missed a crucial penalty kick and more than 10 scoring opportunities that could have won them the game.

"We lost to a good team and this should be a wake-up call for the boys. We have to bounce back and I am confident the boys will rectify their mistakes in their remaining two games."

Begg said the remaining two pool games would be tough but was confident of a good outing. Natabua and Vasist Muni are not easy teams as they were also chasing for a spot in the elimination stages.

"It's a do or die game for our boys," he said

Meanwhile, in the other U15 games played yesterday, Natabua High School secured its first win of the tournament defeating Vasist Muni College of Navua 2-1.

In the girls category AD Patel College thumped Vunimoli Islamia College 3-0 while Tilak High School was held 1-all by Seqaqa.

The competition continues today.
