Wamp NGA Mt. Hagen Eagles

Western Highlanders in the city urged to support Late Pidik’s family

The incident happened during the Digicel Cup elimination match in Port Moresby between the Rabaul Agmark Gurias and Wamp Nga Mt Hagen Eagles.

“Making peace is always important in a modern time like this where law must be followed and traditions must be maintained,” says the Chairman of the Western Highlands Development Forum Inc, Samson Komati, when urging all Western Highlanders in Port Moresby to come forward in kind and cash and help the Late Pidik’s family.

Eagles soar to win over Mioks in week 1 of finals

The venue was packed to capacity with the main game of the day played in sunny and windy conditions.

The Eagles looked the more dangerous side in the opening minutes as they dominated possession.

But it was the Mioks who got the first points from a penalty successfully converted by -eighth Philemon Taim.

In their next visit to the Eagles half, a dangerous tackle on a Mioks player presented the chance for them to extend their lead.

Taim attempted to convert from 25 metres out but his kick just sailed wide.

Eagles soar above Vipers

The Eagles dominated most of the first half to lead 16-0.

But the Vipers fought their way back into the match with a double to halfback Sebulong Ragi in the last 10 minutes, to leave the halftime score at 16-10 in favour of the Eagles.

The Vipers hit early in the second half with a four pointer to narrow the score to 16-14, thanks to Richard Kambo, who was too big and too strong to hold down.
