Marist beats Lelean to claim U17 title

Maciu Malo
Sunday, August 17, 2014

MARIST Brothers High School maintained its unbeaten run when they defeated Lelean Memorial School 25-18 in the Coke Zero Fiji Secondary Schools under-17 competition held at Churchill Park yesterday.

Super sub Lionel Monua broke the 18-all deadlock when he bulldozed his way past the Davuilevu forwards to score a memorable try for the team.

The team which has been winning since U14 grade had also dedicated the win to their hardworking centre Simon Lilicama.

The former Coca-Cola games sprinter has secured two years scholarship for Saint Kean College in Otago.

Head coach Waisake Kalivetau gave credit to his troops for a wonderful display.

He said the team bonding and sacrifice contributed to their win.

"We are glad to maintain our winning run and credit to the boys for their great effort," said Kalivetau.

"The brotherhood amongst the players enabled the team to outsmart a tough Lelean outfit.

"This win is dedicated to Simon who will be joining an Otago school next season."

He said the side was given a good run for their money by the spirited Davuilevi brigade.

"Lelean gave us a very good game but I commend the boys making the school proud."

Lelean livewire prop Meli Bogileka was the star of the game winning the best player award.
