Avatiu take on Sokattak

Saturday September 08, 2018 Written by Published in Soccer

The Avatiu Sports field will play host to a mouth-watering top-of-the-table clash in the Van’s Premier Men’s division today, as third-placed Avatiu prepare to host Nikao Sokattak.

Avatiu are currently sitting in third place in the premier men’s division with two draws and no losses, but Nikao Sokattak, who are only one point ahead of Avatiu, will no doubt be getting their players to focus on today’s crucial match.

Nikao Sokattak will need to be at their best to overcome a determined blue-and-yellow Avatiu outfit. Their ability to score goals from the slightest of opportunities will keep the Avatiu defense on their toes today.

On the other side of the pitch, Avatiu will be led by their veteran Atu Putere, along with youngster Tauira Tararo in the mid-attack, as well as striker Campbell Best up front.

While the historic clash between the two favours Nikao Sokattak, it is expected to be a different ball game in the showdown as both teams will be leaving no stone unturned in their bid to finish their 2018 campaign on a high.

With both teams finding form, this should be a closely contested match.

Round four of the Islander Senior Women’s division sees the two undefeated women’s competition leaders Titikaveka and Tupapa Maraerenga battling each other at Teimurimotia Park in Titikaveka, with the match kicking off at 2.30pm.

This is going to be a great match with both teams fighting for the competition lead, so come on down and support your local teams and club.
