Taveuni have remained unbeaten after beating Nadogo 2-1 in the Vodafone Senior League clash at Subrail Park, Labasa yesterday.

 

What happened: Nadogo took the lead in the 21st minute when Ulaiasi Radoke, a Year 13 student of Nadogo Central College scored the opening goal.

The lead was short-lived when Taveuni’s Dharmesh Kumar equalised the following minute as they settled 1-1 at half time. Both teams took their frustration to the match officials due to the poor ground conditions.

In the 51st minute, Ruvendra Prasad scored Taveuni’s winning goal.

 

Comments: Taveuni Football president James Kumar said: “My players trained in two different locations. Five of my players who are staying in Taveuni trained with the coach while the remaining players who are in Labasa got together and trained whenever they find time. Our goal is to build-up for the Inter District Championship.”

Nadogo coach and secretary, Nalvindra Pratap said: “The players tried their best to play despite being faced by some obstacles. We are in second position along with Savusavu in the points table and we hope to improve in our remaining matches.” Nadogo take on Seaqaqa today at 12pm while Savusavu face Bua at 2pm.
