The Navua football team managed to keep their spot in the Premier Division.

In a crucial clash they walloped a hapless Nasinu side 7-1 at the Uprising Sporting Centre in Pacific Harbour, Deuba, on Saturday night.

Navua coach Mohammed Shafil lived up to his word in ensuring that his players were focused throughout the match.

What happened: Navua were on business mode right from the start and took a 1-0 lead through a Monit Chand goal in the 9th minute.

But continuous pressure took its toll as Navua striker Brian Charittar scored two quick goals in the 38th minute and the other in the 40th minute for a 3-0 lead.

Nasinu pulled a goal back in the 45th minute from a Waisiki Ravouvou strike.

Halftime: Navua 3-1 Nasinu.

It was all Navua in the second half with goals from Manav Permal, Mosese Balenagaga, Chand and Thomas Dunn in the 89th minute.

The Tagi Vonolagi- coached Nasinu side are relegated to the Senior Division.
