The Rewa Women’s football team got to a good start when they walloped Tavua 3-0 in the first match of the 2019 Women’s Inter-district Championship at Fiji FA Academy grounds in Vatuwaqa, Suva yesterday.

Defending IDC champions Ba thrashed minnows Navua 12-0 while Labasa fought hard to wallop Suva 5-2.

Rewa Women’s FC coach Naomi Waqanidrola said despite the lack of preparations for the game the players still managed to put up a winning performance.

“I’m really impressed with the girl’s performance in the opening match today, they really put up a good play,” Waqanidrola said.

“Despite the lack of preparation due to the unfavourable weather experienced over the past weeks the girls managed to win.

“We had field in a lot of new talents for the side this season. I’m confident through their participation at district level will open doors for them to join the national side in the near future. We look forward to a great weekend of competition from our remaining two opponents Suva and Labasa in the pool games.”
