Flick Tavua held luckless Jack’s Nadi to a scoreless draw in their opening clash of the Courts Inter-District Championship at the Churchill Park in Lautoka yesterday.

The men from the gold mining town are definitely not making up the numbers with a good show against the Vodafone Fijian FACT and INKK B.O.G finalists.

The side, returning to the IDC after five years, pressured Nadi time and again with the services of former Nadi rep Semi Vakatalai, Atunaisa Livanalagi, Marika Rawasoi and Ratu Sairusi Nalewadonu.

The side also defended well to keep Nadi strikers from scoring.

On the other and Nadi had the services of goalkeeper Vereti Dickson,Rahul Krishna, Afraz Ali, Ilimotama Jese, Ame Votoniu, Andrew Naicker and Napolioni Qasevakatini.

Nadi had two golden opportunities but Naicker and replacement Tito Vodowaqa flunked it.

 

Big Play: Tavua’s Marika Rawasoi played well in midfield.

 

Star Turn: Tavua goalkeeper Jovilisi Borisi put his body on the line denying the Jetsetters before he was replaced by Ratu Halstead.

Tavua play Lautoka and Nadi face Suva today.

Tavua coach Anand Sami said, “I just took up the team two and half weeks ago and we did all we could to match Nadi.

“Though we created a few chances we still lacked in some technical areas.

“We just played against a few club teams in our preparation and had we played big teams like Lautoka and Ba then we could have been better prepared for Nadi.”

Nadi FA president Javed Ahmed said, “Disappointed with the no show from the team.

“There were a lot of chances but we missed a lot. We will regroup and look forward to the next match.”
