Consistency is the key to success, and Tupapa Maraerenga is starting to find consistency in its performances to date.
Maintaining a high level of play on both sides will be key as they face Nikao Sokattack, which will undoubtedly be one of its toughest challenges yet.
There is more than enough skill on this Nikao team to be competitive; they have both the talent and the desire needed to claim maximum points.
Its three games into the 2017 Rarotonga football competition and table-toppers Tupapa Maraerenga have won two and drawn one. Things are about as good as they can get for the black and white.
They will be hoping to continue building the momentum and create more scoring opportunities for their new striker Marc Evans, who recorded a hat trick in his first game last week against Takuvaine.
The past few weeks have proven that they are ready for the challenge.
This is the first time the two teams have met this season, and this will truly be a big weekend for them.
Nikao is placed fourth on the premier men’s points table, and with the title race still wide open, the team has a good opportunity to make grounds for the top prize.
All games will be kicking off at 12.30pm, with the U14 girls at Victoria Park in Tupapa and at Teimurimotia Park in Titikaveka. - CIFA/ CL
