Goal Kicking Let Mioks Down

At fulltime, Vipers 16-12 ran home over Mioks who scored more tries then the Vipers, but fell short on the scoreboard due to poor goal kicking and ill-discipline.

Mioks turned up on Sunday with a plan to spoil the party for the Vipers. This was evident in the opening  exchanges when former Lae Snax Tigers veteran and playmaker, Noel Joel busted the Vipers defense through the middle to set up Limbi Henry in (16) to draw first blood on the right hand corner to put them in front by 4-0.

Mioks coach sacked

Enga Mioks chairman, Philip Kepson, confirmed this today, stating that the franchise board could not hold back Andiki after losing six games in a row in the 2021 Digicel Cup challenge.

“We were supposed to perform according to expectation,” Kepson told this newsroom. “But because of non-performance, we had to let him go.”

He further blamed Andiki for the loss of 23 key players.

Coach With No Powers

Andiki said after the team lost 23 of its key players, it is no longer performing the way he expects it to.

He said losing Round 6 of the Digicel Cup in yesterday’s match against the Waghi Tumbe, although by only two points, is a clear indication of the problems the coach and players are going through, including the entire EPG Enga Mioks franchise.

Tigers deliver

Lae Snax Tigers opened the score board 11 minutes into the game and came back with another try.

Mioks would not let their fans down, who travelled all the way from Enga, pushing a try just before half time.

Mioks than opened the second half with a try however the Tigers never backed down on home soil, scoring two back to back tries in the 53rd minute and in the 58th minute.

Mioks than scored 61 minutes into the game, but strong defence from tigers saw the final score at 26 points to 16.

Mioks prove their worth

This afternoon they sailed over the Gulf Isou at the Sir John Guise stadium, 36-16 at fulltime.

In the opening minutes it was fair play from both sides as they tested each other on the field, but the Isous were quick with first try just after 10 minutes into the game.

Mioks returned the favour some six minutes later with a try from John Orope. Roger Laka levelled the score with a conversion.

It was 6-all until a close call by Mioks winger, with a second attempt that was unsuccessful.

Gurias sink Mioks

A double from Stanly Olo in the first half puts Gurias in front leading 12-0 at the break.

With 15 into the second half, Mioks half back Dicksy Anni slamed the ball over Gurias line with an amazing fly catch inside the Gurias try line landing under the center post to narrow the lead to 6-12.

Gurias than sent in Joe Taputapu into the corner post to further their lead to 16-6.
