Flies on a roll, eyeing Panthers scalp in final


THE Port Moresby Rugby League major semifinal on Sunday between Hohola Flies and Classic Engineering Tarangau was a close tussle but the Flies came out winners, beating Tarangau 8-6.
The Flies “booked their winning flight” in round 15 and have maintained a flawless run until the last round of the competition.
Coach Michael John Eka was thrilled to witness the performance of his men last Sunday, describing their game as the most outstanding performance displayed so far this season.
He said the close victory gave his men a great challenge but he was proud of his men even though they have one more game to go — the grand final.
“We have to take one game at a time and for my men to win the semifinal gives me extra confidence that we will still throw a tough challenge against Richard Wagambi’s Paga Panthers in the final.”
Eka said he was confident that they would still book the grand final after beating the competition frontrunners Hawks in the preliminary finals two weeks ago.
“I have told my men to take the game certain without panicking while we were warming up for the major semi against the Taranagu,” Eka said.
“I am a happy because my men listened to me and have displayed real sportsmanship on the field to beat the Tarangau by a narrow margin.
“We are now looking forward to the final but in the meantime, my men will be getting on with their training to take on the black cats.”
