Avatiu’s Piri Murare commanded a strong defense against Nikao in their first game and will need to do it again in today’s match to give her side any chance to win.
Titikaveka’s Maeva Carr and Paulina Ponga have played key roles in the first few games of the round, providing many scoring opportunities and scoring a few goals themselves.
Today they will need to continue their super performance to give the side from the southern part of the island the upper hand in the crucial clash.
Meanwhile, Avatiu’s premier men will be looking to come away with a win tomorrow against Titikaveka after falling to Nikao in their only game so far. Titikaveka, however, will not back down following their performances against the top two teams from last year, bagging a win and a draw against Tupapa and Nikao Sokattak, respectively.
However Avatiu will be hoping to give Titikaveka a good run for their money.
