The Navua football team are a step closer from win­ning back the senior divi­sion title of the Courts Inter-Dis­trict Championship after they beat Tailevu/Naitasiri 2-1 in the semi-final at the Fiji FA Acad­emy ground yesterday.

Speaking to SUNsports Navua team director John Wise said they have achieved what they had set out to do.

“We now look forward to our next opponent and try to im­prove on areas that were exploit­ed today.,” he said.

Tailevu/Naitasiri started strongly and took the lead in the 5th minute from a Meli Nagus­udrau strike.

Navua kept on with their attack­ing game and it paid dividend in the 44th minute when they scored the equaliser through vet­eran Netani Doli.

With the scores at 1-1, both teams threw everything into the second half as they searched for the winning goal.

At fulltime it was 1-1 and it was during the first half of the extra spell when Navua’s Monit Chand spotted a gap in the Tailevu/Naitasiri defence and slotted in the winning goal.
