Confidence and a strong mind will always get you where you want to be in life,” Walters said. “We always must strive for better.”
Coach of Trinity/Challengers said Orrin Hughes said the strategy to beat Rivers, was playing balls on the width, stretching the team and finding open areas in the middle of the field. He said his team is improving game by game. “We started our first match on the backfoot, but we have picked up wins in the second (match) and now the third. We can see that the players are building from strength to strength, even though at times it may seem a bit scrappy,” Hughes said..
