Arorangis big chance

Saturday 19 November 2011 | Published in Regional


In the Lotto premier mens football competition, todays featured game will see Tupapa host Arorangi at Victoria Park kicking off at 4pm.

There will be no shortage of football action at Victoria Park as the top side Tupapa head into this match against Arorangi without seven of their key players who are away representing the Cook Islands national side in Samoa.

There is no question that Arorangis men have underachieved during the Round Cup and they will be anxious to seize the opportunity to resolve their average performances by gaining a definite victory against Tupapa.

Arorangis win against Titikaveka on Tuesday will have given them confidence going into todays match against a depleted Tupapa Maraerenga team.

In the other Lotto premier mens game, Takuvaine will be going head to head with Avatiu up the Takuvaine valley.

In todays CIPS Image & Copy Centre round cup competition, the deciding match will be between top two teams Tupapa and Arorangi who are both sitting on 24 points.

Both sides feature key players with the likes of Tupapas Liz Harmon who will control the mid field area with her opposition Samantha Lockington taking charge while in defence Marisa Iroa of Tupapa and Tasha Dean of Arorangi will hold their line to deny any goal scoring opportunities from their opposition, and will be essential in todays match to determine the winner of the CIPS round cup competition. - CIFA Media
