After loosing their first match to Ireland on Sunday the PNG Mosquitoes who played against Nauru yesterday in their second match saw the Mosquitoes suck the blood out of Nauru in the first two quarters of match.

Nauru, putting their game plan together saw them strike back at the Mozzies in the third quarter, scoring two goals and a couple of behinds.

With 40 points difference between the two teams, Mosquitoes held on tight in the last quarter as they were chased by Nauru.

With less then six minutes on the clock, the Mozzies added another goal and a behind bribing their score up to 84 points.

In the last remaining minutes the Nauru side had their defence pull on string keeping the mozzies occupied at their side of the field.

After much anticipation for one or two more goals it was already to late for the Mozzies, who  were planning a 100 points win, but still ended the game on a high over Nauru with 84 points leads to Nauru  29.

The Mozzies will United States in their match on today and if they win the match, they are more likely to face their rival, Ireland once more.
