REWA goalkeeper Epeli Loaniceva turned on a man-of-the-match performance against Design Engineering Lautoka at Churchill Park last night.
The lanky player was a tower of strength in between the uprights and under the crossbar as the Delta Tigers held the home team to a scoreless draw at the Courts Inter-District Championship.
Loaniceva pulled off some excellent saves and even blocked a penalty from Jean Kaltak in the 30th minute.
Some 5000 fans witnessed an exciting encounter as both teams threw caution to the wind with an all-out attack.
As for most part of this season, the Blues created heaps of chances but failed to convert them into goals.
In the end, they were left to rue their missed chances.
Lautoka's Nigerian striker Nelson Odaiji was taken out by Loaniceva and that led to the spot-kick.
Rewa started with Savenaca Nakalevu upfront and opted to rest Valerio Nawatu, who came on late in the game while coach Marika Rodu also played in the final few minutes.
The draw sees all four teams in Group A finish the day with a point each after Ba played a 1-1 draw with Labasa.
Labasa left-back Kavaia Rawaqa fumbled and scored an own goal before coach/player Pita Bolaitoga equalised from the penalty spot. In Group B, former Nadroga rep Samuela Drudru netted a double as Finance Pacific Suva overcame the men from the Coral Coast 2-1. Nadroga had equalised through Elvin Prasad.
In the other Group B encounter, Navua played better football and held a highly-fancied Nadi 1-1. Navua keeper Sheik Moshin could only parry Rusiate Matarerega's drive and Napolioni Qasevakatini was there to finish it off as they led 1-0.
The Shafil Mohammed-coached minnows hit back with a goal from Simione Maikali from the penalty spot. Suva leads this group with three points, Nadi and Navua on one each and Nadroga pointless.
Today's super premier games start at 2pm with Suva playing Navua. Nadi meets Nadroga at 3.30pm, Ba plays Rewa at 4.45 and Lautoka takes on Labasa.
