School league to be competitive this year, says Temoa


THE 2018 Samlimsan School Hockey League will be a competitive one, according to Solomon Islands Hockey Federation (SIHF) Development Officer Allen Temoa.

Temoa made the remarks after watching how the first two matches of the 2018 season rolled out yesterday at the King George Sixth Cricket Pitch in Honiara.

Temoa explained that the two matches played during the opening day displayed competitive intensities and admitted coming out satisfied by the end of the day.

The two opening matches featured King George Sixth School and Don Bosco taking on each other across both the girls and boys divisions.

King George came out victorious recording a 2-1 win in the girls division and another 3-2 winning margin in the boys’ match.

“Don Bosco improved a lot in their matches today (8th May).

“They managed to hold KGVI in the first half of the boys’ match but the second half turned out unfortunate for them and they lost it.

“Of course I’m pretty satisfied with how the first matches turned out. Supporters and fans all came out cheering for their teams.

“I think this is positive sign going forward,” Temoa expressed.

The school hockey league continues today (9th May)
