Cats Look To Bounce Back

Cats are desperate for a win after a string of three consecutive losses to the more superior teams in the past three weeks.

The Cats began the season on a high note, taking an easy 49-7 run over debutants, Alavana Swans in the season opener four weeks ago. However since then they have conceded three consecutive losses and look to make amends with a bit of luck going their way this weekend.

Gereka Bombers are a team predominantly made up of volleyball converts who are still learning the trade of how to use both hands and feet to launch their attack.

Impressive Start To AFL

Also joining the city competition for the first time season is the Alavana Swans of Hula in the Central Province.

Seasoned campaigners, West Eagles, Koboni Demons and 13 Plus Cats opened up Moni Plus 2021 Port Moresby AFL season on a high note, strapping their opponents with impressive wins at the Colts Oval on the weekend.

The Eagles, coming off their pre-season victory last week proved a class above the Dockers by 37 in the main match on Saturday.

Despite the strong Port Moresby heat, the Lamana Dockers have again proven to be vigorous in the quarter finals against the West Eagles in the Port Moresby AFL tournament.

The Dockers, led by young Thaddeus Roa from Talasea area of West New Britain, were tough and managed to take lead over the big guns.

In the first quarter the Dockers led with two goals and 1 behind.

The Eagles made a comeback in the second quarter and scored two goals and two behind, leading in the half time.
