Third league loss

Maciu Malo
Sunday, March 30, 2014

Tavua suffered its third loss in the Skipper Tuna premier competition 1-3 to Nasinu at Garvey Park yesterday.

The side failed to deliver the goods in front of their home fans as fitness level and inexperience let the players down.

Team president Tulsi Ram said the players did not have the fitness required to win them the game.

He said the players gave their best but the combination and the fitness of their oppositions denied the home team a win.

Ram said the players committed basic mistakes that allowed Nasinu to capitalise on.

"We started well but we lack the fitness," he said.

"This is one area we will work on at training and hopefully the boys have learnt their lessons.

"But again this is a new team under a new management and we are taking things slowly."

Ram said the side was still trying to build a winning combination and had called on his players to be committed at training."

He also commended Nasinu for their effort in yesterday's win.

Nasinu's goals were scored by Kaushik Kuma, Laisiasa Vosailagi and Marika Lutu while Tavua scored an own goal from Ashwin Chand.
