Tamanikula stars in AD Patel win

Maciu Malo
Saturday, August 16, 2014

AD Patel goal-scoring machine Lusia Tamanikula has created history in the Vodafone secondary school girls' category for scoring 6 goals in a game.

The 16-year-old was in top form helping her teammates thump Nausori High School 8-0 in a one-sided affair in Ba yesterday.

Tamanikula scored two goals in their first pool game 3-0 win over Vunimoli on Thursday to secure a spot in today's semi-final.

Head coach Pranil Singh said the Year 11 student had a great future ahead of her.

"Luisa is a gifted footballer and to score six goals in one game is a testament of her talent and skills," he said.

"She is in top form and will play a crucial part in our title defence campaign."

Singh said he was happy for his players in maintaining their unbeaten run from last year.

"We haven't conceded any goal so far this season and we are aiming to maintain our unbeaten run in the competition," he said.

"We are glad to qualify to the semi-final and the girls have been urged to lift their game."

The side will face either Kamil College or Seaqaqa in the semi-final.
