Labasa women football team had a good start in the Vodafone Women Senior League Northern Zone competition when they trounced Savusavu 11-0 at Subrail Park, Labasa.

Labasa coach Arthur Simmons said he was proud of his team’s performance.

“It had been only a few weeks that the team made up of five Under-18 girls and senior players got together to prepare for the league match,” Simmons said.

“They managed to gel in well and coordinate in the field producing this unexpected result.

“I always believe in them and I know there is more potential.”

Labasa captain Sivo Ciriyawa said their aim was to win the League and they are taking one game at a time.

“We are still trying to iron out our mistakes so that we can play to our best. We are grateful to have a great coach who pushes us to work together to produce better results. We have a team of talented players who some are still students.

“To us it doesn’t better which profession or background you come from as long as we get to use our talent and work together for the sake of our district.”

Labasa College Year 11 student, Arishna Devi said she was excited to be part of the Labasa women’s team.

“Especially, when we come from a society where soccer is still regarded as a men’s sport and it is due to the support of parents and teachers that we are able to do well,” she added.
