THE female champions of Northern Division soccer, Seaqaqa Central College, know they have a mammoth task in front of them as they head into the finals of the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools Soccer Championship today.

Participating in the open girls category, the northerners defeated Vunimoli Islamia College 2-0.

The win has placed them in the final with defending champions AD Patel College, who sealed their place with a gutsy 1-0 win over Kamil Muslim College.

Seaqaqa Central College manager Shalveen Chand said the past days of competition were extremely tough.

"We had difficult games but we finally made it," he said.

"We have seen some of the weaknesses in our teams. We have to pull our defence first as we have seen how AD Patel plays.

"They are very fast. We will need to work on our errors and conceding penalties because of offsides."

Chand said they would work on fixing those basic errors and the team would be fully prepared to face AD Patel in the final today.

Meanwhile, AD Patel coach Pranil Singh said their semi-final victory was very crucial.

"We knew Kamil would come out firing because we have already played with them a couple of times," he said.

"We had to draw a strategy to maintain our unbeaten record from the very beginning of this tournament.

"We have achieved our target and now we will be heading towards the final.

Before the final, we will look into the injury level in the team. Then we are going to draw a strategy for the final."
