The team’s progress to the final has been spectacular, as they pulled off an upset in their semi-final match up, defeating Round Cup champions Titikaveka.
Takuvaine will be the team to watch out for as they bring form and skills to the game.
Coming against Avatiu today will make for an entertaining match-up as they too bring class to the game of football, and have shown consistency and outstanding performances throughout the season.
In the U11 mixed division, Nikao Sokattak was the other team who pulled off an incredible upset, defeating the red and black powerhouse from Puaikura 3-0 in their semi-final encounter.
The winner takes all battle between Nikao Sokattak and Avatiu will be an intriguing match to watch.
The Puaikura U17 men’s team, who finished their round cup campaign at the bottom of the table, have finished ahead of far more challenging football clubs in the knockout stages of the competition.
After exceeding everyone’s expectations, they will be ready to face Nikao Sokattak in much the same way as they did in their last two encounters.
Nikao Sokattak boasts an unbeaten run, and the round cup competition winners will no doubt be the favourites going into today’s match.
