Marist Brothers High School and Adi Cakobau School are still on track to defend their Under-19 grade boys and girls title in the Tuckers Secondary School Hockey competition respectively in Lautoka today.

MBHS was held 0-0 St Thomas High, and later defeated Gospel High 1-0, with two more pool matches to play in the Bhasin Cup.

Ba Provincial Freebird Institute after lapse of many years, returned to upset western top favourite Tilak High 2-0.

Westmere Cup holders ACS is in commanding lead in Pool A with the wonder strikes from Ana Blake defeated St Joseph’s Secondary 2-0 and St John’s College with the same margin.

Nadi-based Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College (SSKMC) from Nadi is also in contention after wins over Levuka Public 4-0 and Xavier College 5-0.

In the U16 grade defending champions Marist suffered a setback when they were edged 1-0 by St Thomas High despite the 2-1 victory over Natabua High in the Sandays Trophy.

In the girls U16 grade St Thomas High faced some torrid encounters after they were held 1-1 by Ballantine Memorial, locked scoreless t fulltime with Levuka Public, and Natabua High 1-1 in the Noall Trophy.

Fiji Secondary School Hockey secretary Clifton Powell said competition has gone to a new level.

“All the schools still have their chances since the pool games are yet to be complete,” he said.

He said there are few changes in how they will organise day two events.

“We are happy with the way games have been but with the delay and will change the running time from 20 minutes each half and shorten it to 15 minutes each half.”

He thanked major sponsors Goodman Fielders for their support, Natabua High School and Nadovu Park for the use of the ground, umpires and respective teachers and students.

The matches resume at 8am at the Natabua High School and Nadovu Park respectively.
