First For Seaqaqa
Seaqaqa Primary School U-14 wins in the Bongo 40th Fiji Primary Schools Football Association (FPSFA) Inter-District Champion at Guru Nanak Primary School ground after beating Ba 1-0 in Labasa yesterday.

Seaqaqa Primary School’s Under-14 team won the Bongo 40th Fijian Primary Schools Football Association (FPSFA) Inter-District Championship at Guru Nanak Primary School ground in Labasa yesterday.
The team edged Grand Pacific Hotels Limited’s Ba 1-0 in the final.
Both teams were scoreless at fulltime but Seaqaqa captain Saimone Mataomi scored in the first five minutes of extra-time.
Seaqaqa coach Samia Toga applauded the players for the performance.
“This is the first time Seaqaqa won and I feel like I am on top of the world,” Toga said.
“I brought only 14 players and everyone knows that Seaqaqa has always been left in isolation and deprived in so far as soccer development is concerned.
“The historical achievement proves that people should stop looking down on us.
“I dedicate this win to all the people of Seaqaqa, our sponsors, teachers and parents.”
Toga was awarded the Best Coach for Under-14; Zumir Ishat won the Best Player of Tournament in the U14 grade.
Mataomi said he knew he had to score.
“I heard a voice speaking to me that I should kick the goal directly to the goalmouth and I did,” he said.
He is a Year Eight student of Cadranasiga District School in Seaqaqa.
Meanwhile, Ba official Mohammed Irshad Jalil was upbeat in defeat.
“The players played very well and we thank everyone who supported our team,” Jalil said.

2016 IDC in Ba
The 2016 Fiji Primary Schools Football Association (FPSFA) Inter-District Championship (IDC) will be held in Ba.
This was confirmed by the FPSFA president Ami Chand during the closing of the Bongo 40th FPSFA IDC at Guru Nanak Primary School in Labasa yesterday.

Bongo 40th IDC a success
Meanwhile, Chand said the three-days tournament was a success.
“There was no major incident, there is no report of players being hospitalised or seriously injured.
“Although we experienced very hot weather, the players from 18 districts displayed good sportsmanship.
“I am aware that some district officials complained that the ground was rough and had uneven surface which I believe it could be because of the recent dry spell.
“Nevertheless, the programme proceeded according to plan.
“I would like to thank Guru Na.nak Primary School management and teachers for their support.
“Also thanks to all the players and officials and Ministry of Education,” he said.
There was a representative from Fiji Football Association who had selected a number of players to be in the National Under-14 squad.
