Sokattak home to face Puaikura

The Nikao Sokattak premier men’s soccer team will host Puaikura for the first of three games this season. Nikao Sokattak and Puaikura will square off Saturday 25 August 2018 at the Nikao sports field at 4pm.


Puaikura is coming off a narrow 0-1 loss to Tupapa Maraerenga in Round 1 of the football competition, while Nikao Sokattak are off to a strong start and has opened the season well with a 4-1 win over Titikaveka

Nikao Sokattak look more incisive and better equipped to break down stubborn defenses than they did in the past.

Julius David and Nathan Tism were on the score sheet in their first game, and the pair are two of the more critical players to keep an eye on. Today’s match is the biggest test Nikao Sokattak face yet this season

Dwayne Tiputoa, Conroy Tiputoa and Pekay Edwards are the attacking trio that Nikao Sokattak’s back line must contend with. Figuring things out going forward are key for Puaikura to come away with the win here.

Nikao Sokattak and Puaikura have the wealth in experience with a number of players who have been here before which will help settle the nerves.

All in all, this premier men’s match is predicted to be a thrilling and exciting one with all the ingredients of attacking and entertaining football to be displayed.
