Striker Rusiate Matererega repaid Rewa officials faith in him when he scored the goal that beat Ba 1-0 in the Digicel Premier League clash at the ANZ Stadium, Suva, yesterday.

The Rewa Football officials signed up Matererega from Nadroga after they lost Anish Khem to Suva.

What happened: Both goalkeepers Mohammed Alam and Tevita Koroi worked overtime to keep their goalmouth intact.

Halftime: Rewa 0-0 Ba

A tactical change by Rewa in bringing in Matererega and Iosefo Verevou lifted their performance.

Matererega headed in the lone goal  in the 75th minute.

Comment: Rewa coach Rodicks Singh said: “We decided to start with the same boys that we had last year, and give the new boys a chance in the second half.”
