Cook Islands: Puaikura beat Nikao and reach Tupapa on top of Vans Premiership’s table

The fourth matchweek of 2020 Vans Premiership was contested this weekend in the Cook Islands and the league has now two teams tied on top.

Avatiu and Matavera remain on bottom of the table as the clash between them was an 1-1 draw. Both teams have not won in the season yet and fans must expect another tough season for them. Avatiu are in the sixth position with only one point while Matavera is in fifth with two points.

Current league champions Tupapa Maraerenga fought hard but they did not manage to beat Titikaveka. Apii Graham opened the scoreboard for Tupapa in the first half but Jedrick Engu equalized. At the final whistle the score was an 1-1 draw.
