Labasa Under-18 girl’s team are the winners of the Vodafone Northern Zone final playoff.

This was after they beat Savusavu 3-0 at Labasa Sangam Primary School ground.

Coach Sanaila Bera congratulated his players who are mostly high school students for putting up a good fight.

“The girls played according to the game plan throughout the match,” the former Labasa striker said.

Cynthia Dutt scored the first goal as they led 1-0 at halftime. Then Patricia Dera and Adi Selai scored the other goals in the second half.

Fiji Football Association Northern development officer Iosefo Vosaboto said they have selected nine girls from the four teams (Dreketi, Savusavu, Labasa and Seaqaqa) during the playoffs who will go into the national U20 camp.

Savusavu U18 coach Karalaini Prasad said they need to tighten their defence and also poor communication let them down as well.

“Although we did not win the playoff we are grateful to have reached the final,” she added. Savusavu received $200 while Labasa walked away with $500.
