ROVADRAU FC rose out of the shadows of their rivals Combine FC to score an emphatic 3-1 win in the Navua FA pre-season knockout competition.

The two teams met in the feature match at the Vashist Muni Primary School ground on Sunday.

Rovadrau, back in the NFA competition after several years, were the underdogs against the semi-finalist from the Fiji FA National Club Championship.

Backed by Rovadrau businessman Vijay Prasad, the side roped in Combine's Chand brothers Vineet, Rohit and Rimal.

Rovadrau, featuring 47-year-old former Navua rep Tomu Tutubi, came back from a 1-0 deficit to win with two of their three goals coming in the last seven minutes. Tutubi was part of Navua's 1989 promotion winning team.

Vashist Muni College Form Six student Ifraaz Hussein showed good vision and anticipation to score the winner for Sangam against Waidova.

The 1-0 win marked a dream debut for the 17-year-old, the son of former Navua rep Istafaque Hussein.

Another former Navua ace, Parmind Singh, launched the plucky Navunisoco Village team from near Naboro.

Mahen Prasad's Unifarm team, comprising players from FNU Navua, and Rohit Prasad's Raiwaqa were the other new sides.

Results: Jolly FC 2 Eagles FC 1; Unifarm 1 Navunisoco 1; Rovadrau 3 Combine FC 1; Sangam 1 Waidova 0; Naitonitoni Friends 1 Eagles 1; Navunisoco 1 Raiwaqa 0.
