REVIVERS won the women's 7-a-side soccer tournament in Nausori yesterday.

They beat Classic from Suva 2-1 in the final at the Saraswati Primary School grounds in Manoca.

A total of four teams took part in the tournament organised by Rewa soccer coach Marika Rodu.

He said all teams were impressive in their respective games and proved that the interest was there.

"The interest is there and we need to build on this by organising more competitions for the women's," he said.

"With more competition, their confidence will grow and the sport will grow and we have more interest."

He said the teams that competed in the tournaments displayed good skills, speed and strength.

"The games were quite tough for the women, especially playing in the heat but they played really well.

"Above all, they all enjoyed the day and I have seen that there is a lot of potential in women's soccer in Rewa."

Today, Rodu will host a mens 7-a-side tournament in which 20 teams will compete.

"The men's competition is a fundraiser for the women's soccer in Rewa.

"We expect good competition from the men's but at the end of the day, its all about the development of the sport."
