A powerful second half performance from Suva saw them score three unanswered goals to beat Tavua 3-0 at Govind Park in Ba yesterday.
Suva, with Nigerian Issa Sanni leading from upfront, had some easy scoring opportunities in the first half but poor communication in front of the Tavua goal let them down.
Sanni was well supported by Samuela Drudru and USP student Ralph Sherwin but the heavy rain in the first half did not help their passing.
Tavua on the other hand just could not put their act together and found it hard to break the tough Suva defence.
Suva came out a much better side in the second half and managed to convert three scoring chances into goals.
Suva coach Gurjeet Singh said they did not play to the game plan in the first half and they rectified that in the second.
"We had so many scoring opportunities but we did not convert it into goals and that was our weakness," Singh said.
"But we must also give credit to Tavua as they had come well prepared."
Suva's first goal was scored when Issa fired home a cross from the left which the Tavua goalkeeper fumbled and was kicked in by one of their defenders.
Lanky Leone Damudamu blasted home the second goal before newcomer Ravinesh Karan put the final nail into Tavua's coffin.
