Fiji hockey reps up the ante
December 12, 2012 5:50 pm
The Fiji men’s and women’s hockey teams will face Papua New Guinea at the National Hockey Centre tomorrow to determine who qualifies for the next round of the World Series in India.
The series is only competed for between Fiji, PNG, Vanuatu and Samoa while NZ Maori and Australian Country are only a part of the Oceania Pacific Cup.
Fiji has the upper-hand having already defeated PNG this week.
Fiji women’s goalkeeper, Susan Mudunatagi says after their 3-2 penalty shootout win over Australia yesterday, she’s ready for any challenge.
“There was so much pressure on us. In every training session I get it wrong so it came down to this and I did it for my country that’s what my coach said, do it from your heart and nowhere else and the supporters were so awesome. I cut down angles, if you come out as a goalkeeper you cut out angles of the players because once they come up to the keepers you close down and cut off their angles of putting it in the goal.”
It’s a rest day for the Fiji men today while the women will face Samoa at 5pm.
