Suva Win In Style
Fiji has now had 172 cases in total since our first case was detected on March 19th 2020, with 119 recoveries, and 4 deaths.

What happened: All Freight Logistics Suva has proceeded to the semifinal in style after beating newly promoted Tailevu/ Naitasiri 6-0 in the 2014 Courts IDC yesterday at ANZ Stadium, Suva.

It was a slow start to the first half but Suva easily stood out as the dominant team.

It was not long till Suva went on the attack resulting in their first goal scored by Pita Rabo, 1-0. Tailevu/Naitasiri rarely got the chance to make use of possession which cost them.

In the 23rd minute, Suva found an opening from a perfect pass for Nickhil  Chand to score for Suva lead 2-0. Suva’s brutal attack did not stop there as a minute later Ravinesh Singh scored Suva’s third goal.

In the 35th minute, Suva scored their fourth goal from a pass inside the box to Chand who found the back of the net, 4-0. Tailevu/Naitasiri looked lost in the game and struggled to maintain concentration.

Halftime: 4-0

There was not much change in the second spell. Suva’s Jale Dreloa got bold and was delivering crosses outside the box but none successful. Tailevu/Naitasiri played a very defensive game right from the start. Suva spent most of the second half in Tailevu/Naitasiri’s territory looking for opportunities to increase their lead. Suva comfortable with their lead, began experimenting on shooting goals from outside the box. In the 61st minute Leone Damudamu scored their fifth goal. Suva ran rings around Tailevu/Naitasiri’s defence not ending their assault as Chand again scored the last goal for Suva.

Star turn: Nikhil Chand for Suva was outstanding scoring three goals.

Big play: The Suva defence was impenetrable.

Comments: All Freight Logistics Suva coach Gurjit Singh, “It was a good game and I’ve been monitoring their performance. The backs really played well and I’m happy we are through to the semifinals.”

Tailevu/Naitasiri coach Shalendra Roy, “Our main concern is fitness and I think today it really reminded the boys just how important fitness is. This has been an eye opener for the boys and they have truly gained a lot from this competition.”
