‘Be mod­est in vic­tory’ is the good old spirit of the ‘Red Fire’ sports, what­ever it may be. That was ev­i­dent af­ter the game at Lawaqa Park as old warhorse, RKS, went down like a true cham­pion. Marist fi­nally got its pound of flesh. I’m sure the ‘Red Fire’ squad has gained new in­sights from that hard earned vic­tory to give them a good stand­ing against cham­pi­ons QVS. They have achieved some­thing at least against a fired up RKS, but the wet con­di­tions did not favour the herons of De­lainakaikai. One can’t change the weather but play with it and that was what Marist did with its high kicks that paid div­i­dends. De­spite a last minute ef­fort to rally at­tack it didn’t change the tide. We don’t have to seek the as­sis­tance of horo­scopes and for­tune tell­ers, the fig­ures tell us that QVS will give it their best shot. God cer­tainly helps those who help them­selves and sure both sides have done the hard yards, but Marist has to im­prove on their tac­ti­cal kicks and use hard earned pos­ses­sion in­stead of giv­ing it away. Def­i­nitely the Marist front row was men­ac­ing stir­ring up so much ag­gres­sion and power in their pack and that may do the dam­age in their game against the boys from Vulin­itu who can eas­ily be pro­voked to de­rail them from con­cen­tra­tion. This elim­i­na­tion re­minds me of those gang­ster movies where only the boss ring­leader is fi­nally left to face the good blokes. Be that as it may King David’s words in 1Chron­i­cle 29 will al­ways ring true that in God’s hand are strength and power. Go the Reds, conquer on.
