Avatiu Dragonflies will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing loss last week when they take on Takuvaine Red Angels today.

 

The two teams will go head on head in the feature 19 and under match at Takuvaine Courts.

Last week at home, the Dragonflies suffered a disappointing loss against Tupapa Maraerenga Panthers in the feature match of the round.

Despite a grand fight, the side went down to a much superior Panthers 38-55 on Saturday.

In today’s clash, the Dragonflies will be much favoured after beating the Red Angels 68-31 in round one match.

The Red Angels 19U are yet to register a win in the competition after going down to Panthers 22-85 before getting smashed by defending champions Arorangi Flames 23-110.

In the other match today, the Panthers will host Ngatangiia-Matavera Seagalz.

Meanwhile in the mid-week match on Thursday, Arorangi Flames defeated Titikaveka Pearls 27-22 in the 15 and under battle.
