The Nikao Sokattak thrashed the Arorangi premier men’s soccer team 12-0 on Saturday at Nikao field.

Sokattak showed composure right from the first whistle and was rewarded with a goal in the first three minutes of the game.

Sokattak went on and scored five more goals in the first half.

In the second half Sokattak maintained their momentum and went to score six more goals to bring their final score to 12-0.

For Nikao the Tisam brothers, Tuka and Anonga together with Dawn Tare and Steve Cuthers moved the ball swiftly on the field which made it difficult for Arorangi to have ball possession. For Arorangi, academy player Temana Pennycook played well but never received enough balls to convert into goals.
