THE 2018 Samlinsan Club Hockey League will continue this Sunday at the King George Six Hockey Field with three more matches.
Solomon Islands Hockey Federation (SIHF) Development Officer Mr Allen Temoa told SunSPORTS the hockey league is expected to finish by the end of the month.
“Only two Sundays is left for the round robin games to be completed. We expect to complete it by the end of this month.
“Three matches are set for this Sunday, two from the men’s and one from the women’s action,” he said.
For the competition table currently leading after four games in women’s competition is Parrots women’s team with 12 points
Don Bosco Club is in second place with seven points after four games played via goal difference while Cobra sits in third place also with seven points.
In the men’s league, currently leading the race after playing six games is Wantoks men’s hockey team with 16 points followed by USP (A) with 10 points and USP (B) hockey team who are in third position with eight points.
Deciding match for second place in the men’s competition will take place after the women’s action at 3pm this Sunday between Wantoks and Parrots.
Men’s deciding match for this Sunday is set for 3:30pm as USP (B) takes on USP (A).
Winner of this match could well cement second position that is if Cobra who is currently fourth with seven points, does not cause an upset over competition leaders Wantoks at 4pm.
Meanwhile the Development Officer says the Samlinsan High School Hockey League is set to resume on the first week of August.
