What happened: Nasinu thrashed Northland Tailevu 3-0 in the Vodafone Senior League at the Fiji Football Association grounds in Suva yesterday.

It was a slow start for both teams in the first half.

Despite Northland Tailevu’s first loss in their first game last week against Tailevu Naitasiri, they managed to hold the fort putting on a good line of defence.

Nasinu were hungry to score but their attempts at goal proved futile as Tailevu North goalkeeper Rusiate Amasio put his body on the line.

Half-time: Nasinu 0-0 Northland Tailevu

Nasinu’s Robert Nair broke the deadlock with a perfectly timed shot in the 45th minute to put them in the lead, 1-0. Northland/Tailevu struggled to keep up with the Nasinu attackers.

Nasinu’s Nathan Kumar scored the side second goals he span of seven minutes to give Nasinu a comfortable win, 3-0.

Big play: Northland Tailevu showed good defence in the first-half.

Star turn: Nasinu’s Nathan Kumar scored in two goals for his side.

Comments: Northland Tailevu coach Ramesh Chandra said:

“The boys are still not turning up for training.

“They had a good first half, they were alert and sharp but in the second half they lost concentration. ”

Nasinu coach Richard Lal: “I really want to thank Northland Tailevu for a good game.

“This is a good result for us considering we only had a week to train. We will be playing bigger teams and we need to get better.”
