Nippy striker Shahil Dave scored a brace of goal in the 3-0 win over Nadi during the Courts Inter-District Championships in Lautoka yesterday.

The capital side bounced back in style after it lost Lautoka 2-0 on Tuesday.

What happened: It took the capital city three minutes to score through a penalty after Waisake Tabucava fouled Bruce Hughes in the box.

Dave beat goalkeeper Vereti Dickson.

Halftime: Suva 1 – 0 Nadi

Dave second goal came in the 77th minute when he chipped the ball over Dickson.

Nadi came back but could not score as Suva was tough in the defence led by brothers Bruce and Setereki Hughes, Pita Rabo, Ravinesh Karan Singh, Filipe Baravilala.

Setareki sealed the win in the 89th minute.

The win keeps Suva chances of making the last four alive while Nadi will have to await the results of the final pool games.

Big Play: Shahil Dave was on fire.

Star Turn: The Hughes brothers played well.

Comments:

Suva coach Sam Lal said, “A good result, Tuesday’s was very disappointing. Our plan didn’t work but we changed the formation which is what we wanted and we came out with three goals, big win against Nadi. Good call, the players played really well.

“They really wanted to fight back to stay in the competition. Tavua is next and Anand Sami is doing a very good job and I’m pretty sure they will give us a hard time.

Nadi coach Viliame Toma said, “We had a dismal performance out there but we had all we could do, congratulations to Suva.”
