Chand says he is proud of the team’s effort.

“We were camping for one week and all the boys are playing very hard and some of our players are also playing U19. We just had our game over there and came now.”

Looking at some of the results, U19 Central College drew 1-all with Sigatoka Methodist, U15 Tilak High School beat Labasa College 1-nil, Xavier College beat Sabeto College 1-nil in the girls category, while Nadroga Arya lost 1-nil to Vunimono High School also in the girls category.
