The Rewa football team proved too good for Labasa scoring a 3-1 win during the  Vodafone Premier League clash at Subrail Park, Labasa yesterday.

What happened: Labasa goalkeeper- cum striker Akuila Mateisuva kicked the first goal in the 22nd minute as they led 1-0 at halftime.

In the 63rd minute, Labasa striker Apenisa Anare was stretchered off the field while Rewa striker Iosefo Verevou copped a red card.

And in the 73rd minute, Verevou’s elder brother Epeli Saukuru was also shown the red card as the Delta Tigers played with nine players. This sparked a revival as Rewa hit back when veteran goalkeeper Simione Tamanisau moved upfront to score the equaliser. And minutes later Sailosi Rayaqona smacked in Rewa’s second before Josateki Tamudu sealed their victory with a glorious goal.

Comments: Rewa football coach Marika Rodu; “Definitely, the aim was to come and win. We were in third position before Friday’s game and after that we climbed up to second position. The result of this game is very crucial.

“But I am still frustrated with the indiscipline. We need to work on our fitness and that is something that we are lacking during the second round.”

Labasa Football Association vice-president Varun Anand;

“We played with a new goalkeeper and we will work on weaknesses and fitness.”
