Foodcity/Ash Cuts and Styles Rewa have qualified for to­morrow’s semifinal after they thrashed Nasinu 7-0 in their final Group A clash.

Rewa have topped Group A and coach, Marika Rodu was grateful to his players.

“I thank God Almighty for the progress we have done,” he said.

‘I think we have grown from the first game, 12 goals from the pool games and for me the overall sea­son has been good. Whatever we have achieved now, it just cream on the cake.”

Rodu said it was their faith in God that brought them this far.

“Divine intervention, it is our faith in God, it is the mainstay of this team. The semi-final is going to be tough, we have to adapt really quickly to the ground conditions.” he said.

In the Nasinu game, Sairusi Bo­kini played goalkeeper while Simi­one Tamanisasu came in as a sub­stitute striker.

“Simione Tamanisau, he is an experienced player, he can score goals, I think it’s important for us the objective was to give the play­ers rest,” Rodu added.

What happened: Rewa proved too strong for Nasinu scoring four un­answered goals.

Striker Setareki Hughes scored their first goal in the 10th minute before Frances Catarogo extended their lead to 2-0. Bruce Hughes scored a double before halftime

Halftime: Rewa 4-0 Nasinu

Rewa continued the same attack­ing form in the second half. Nasinu could not defend their territory.

Rewa scored through substitutes, Sailosi Rayaqona, Simione Taman­isau and Shavnil Parasad.
