The Samuela Drudru-captained Professional Valuations Nadi side created history after winning their first Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion Series yesterday.

What happened: Nadi went into the match needing only a draw after winning the first leg 1-0 at the ANZ Stadium last Friday.

Nadi launched many attacks keeping Suva goalkeeper Emori Ragata working overtime.

Halftime: Nadi 0- 0 Suva

It was in the 87th minute that Ravitesh Behari awarded a penalty after Ragata fouled Drudru.

Mateinaqara scored but Nickel Chand equalised in injury time beating goalkeeper  Vereti Dickson.

Nadi received $5000 while Suva settled for $2500.

Star turn: Samuela Drudru played a good lead role.

Big play: Suva’s Nickel Chand was tireless and was rewarded with a goal.

Comments:

Nadi’s coach Kamal Swamy said: “We know we would win and that we did. We played slow pace.”

Suva Coach Gurjit Singh said: “It was a good game better than the last Friday. We will need to make some changes in the team, overall we did well.” Edited by Osea Bola
