What happened?

Navua Youth braved the wet and rain to outclass Suva Youth 4-1 in the Rewa Galaxy Youth League Vashist Muni Primary School, Navua yesterday.

Navua drew first blood through Patrick Ledua. In the 36th minute, Monesh Prasad scored the equaliser for Suva, 1-1. Five minutes later, Shahil Karan replied, scoring Navua’s second goal in the 41st minute.

Halftime: Navua Youth 2-1 Suva Youth

Navua looked more relaxed and composed on the field in the second spell and it showed when Sarat Kumar scored just seven minutes into the second-half from a free kick.

Navua showed good footwork making Suva try extra-hard to get possession of the ball. Suva struggled to penetrate the Navua defence.

In the 73rd minute, Kumar scored his second goal catching the Suva goalie off guard to end the game 4-1.

Star turn: Navua Youth showed more composure on the field and dominated the second half.

Big play: Defence was a key component and both teams showed good defence but Navua was more in control.

Comments: Suva Youth coach Gurjit Singh: “We could not play according to our game plan and our structure was not good due to the wet ground.

“The goals scored against us were all easy goals and my boys still have a lot to learn in order to get good and we are still working on that.”

Navua Youth coach Malvin Chand, “I am very proud of my players because they worked according to the game plan.”
