The Koromakawa Rentals & Tours Na­vua and Glamada Investments Rewa teams must win their next pool games to stay in the running of the Digicel Fiji FACT tournament.

This was after their clash ended in a 1-1 draw at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka, yesterday.

What happened: Rewa started strongly as they played a structured game. They bom­barded the Navua goal and drew first blood in the 16th minute from a Setareki Hughes strike after he was set up by Tevita Warana­ivalu.

This woke the Navua players as they dictat­ed play and had the Rewa defenders working overtime.

In the 27th minute, from a cross, Navua defender Arami Manumanubai managed to head the ball past Rewa goalkeeper Emori Ragata for the equaliser.

Halftime: Navua 1-1 Rewa.

In the second spell, both teams failed to make use of their scoring chances. Also, the heat took its toll on the players

Comments: Navua coach Saiyad Ali said: “My boys did give in their 100 per cent. The good thing is that they stuck to the game plan right through to the final whistle.”

Rewa coach Marika Rodu said: “The boys showed they were not hungry enough.

“Navua deserved the draw and when you lose points each time out chances (of win­ning the tournament) do get slim.”
