REWA caused the biggest upset in the opening round of the Bargain Box Fiji Limited women's Inter District Championship beating defending champions Suva 1-0 at Govind Park in Ba yesterday.
Marica Ratuki proved to be the hero for the Delta side scoring the lone goal in the second spell.
Last year's runner-up Labasa made a blistering start to their campaign.
The northerners recorded two big wins. Labasa downed Nadroga 3-1 and then trounced Nadi 6-1 to edge closer to the semi-final.
Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel said this year's women's IDC was no picnic trip for the ten teams.
He said the Fiji FA coaching staff members and selectors would be keeping tab on players for the Fiji under-17 and the national women's teams.
Patel said participation in the Oceania Football Confederation U17 playoffs to qualify for the FIFA U17 Women's World Cup had become mandatory.
"The development of women's soccer in the country is on par," Patel said.
"I would like to thank our new sponsors Bargain Box Fiji Limited for coming on board with Fiji FA. The women's IDC this year is the platform for the selection of the Fiji U17 team for the upcoming OFC playoffs.
"The OFC U17 qualifiers have become an important issue. It is now mandatory for all countries in Oceania to participate in the regional playoffs. So this is something that we have targeted at this IDC.
"This will not be a fun and picnic trip whereby the teams will just play and go back. All the teams have a lot of young players because of the criteria that is set. The selectors will be keeping their eyes out for potential national talents.
"In the Western Division we have the U13 and U15 competitions underway. We have Charlene Lockington looking after the Just Play program with Fiji FA technical director Farouk Janeman assisting in with Usenio Logaivou as the head coach."
The women's IDC will resume at 8am today.
The semi-finals and final will be played tomorrow.
