VEIUTO Primary School under-13 will play Marist Brothers Primary School in the first semi-final of the Vodafone Suva Kaji competition next weekend.

Veiuto Primary defeated Vatuwaqa Primay School 28-0 in the first quarter-final at St Marcellin Primary School ground in Vatuwaqa yesterday.

In the second semi-final, MBPS defeated John Wesley Primary School 19-0 while Gospel Primary School thrashed Nehru Primary School 17-0.

Dudley Intermediate Primary School proved too strong for Assemblies of God Primary School 15-0 in the last quarter-final.

“The teams are doing well and it was a good progress from the different grades,” Suva Kaji administrator Taniela Naiteqe said.

“The rainy weather had affected our two weeks of competitions.”

He said Suva teams were expecting harder competitions when the competition progressed into the nationals.

“The teams in the four divisions are preparing hard. For Suva, we won six cups, but we cannot predict anything because the competition is nationwide.”

“For the national competition, only U12, U13 and U14 will qualify.”
