Games is more than medals

While they maybe rivals on the field, off field they are friends and sisters.

 PNG womens soccer team captain  Deslyn Sinu took time out after PNG'S match with Samoa this week to present her Samoan rival and friend a gift.

A Manus basket.

Samoa captain Rosie Leota and Deslyn  have met many times on field both striving to be the best.

Samoa came to the Pacific Games with dramatic improvement to their team with the recruitment of Leota an Auckland based player.

 Unfortunately Samoa lost to Cook islands in the Bronze playoff.

Sinui on the other is an old hand at soccer having come from a family that is heavily involved in soccer.

Last night she led PNG to another gold thus retaining PNG women's soccer title as the champion in the Pacific.
