Apii Nikao & Avarua Origin Gas School Champs

Parents and supporters took time off work to support their children at the final showdown on Wednesday at the Matavera Complex and were not disappointed with the action packed football.
In the girls division, Apii Nikao came to win and dominated all facets of play as they overwhelmed Titikaveka two goals to nil. The win secured their championship title for 2015.
Second placing Avarua School scored early in the first half with a beautiful goal that blasted past the goalkeeper. In the second half Apii Arorangi put up a strong defence and denied any chance of goal for Avarua with the full time score of one goal to nil in favour of Avarua. Arorangi secured a well-deserved third placing.
In the other matches in the boy’s division, Avarua showed skill and football flair as they scored early in the match against Arorangi. Arorangi were unable to shut down the determined Avarua team who continued to find the back of the net ending the match with a three nil win.
