Rewa in the semis

Maciu Malo
Sunday, April 20, 2014

THE Rewa Gujarati soccer team hopes to maintain its unbeaten run in this year's Fiji Gujarati soccer IDC tournament at Lautoka's Churchill Park.

The Delta boys stunned host Lautoka 2-1 in their first pool game before thumping Ba 3-0 and drawing nil-all with Nadi to become the first team to advance to the semi-final later this afternoon.

Coached by former Rewa skipper and coach Marika Rodu, the side looks set to win the main title.

Team president Sanjay Patel said the side was on the right path to fulfil its objective, saying the challenge for his troops was to be consistent in the elimination stages and maintain its unbeaten run.

"I am happy that the boys have secured a spot in the semi-final," said Patel.

"The side is on track to win the title and I believe these boys will make our fans proud.

"To beat top teams like Ba and Lautoka is a huge morale-booster to this young team and we will do our best to win the semi-final."

Patel said the semi-final would be a different ball game and he called on his troops to give their best.

"The semi-final is a do or die situation for the team and we will do all it takes to win the game.

"Nadi performed well during the pool games and it will be tough to play against them in the elimination stages.

"But our boys are committed to winning the game."

In other games played yesterday, Lautoka was held to a scoreless draw by Suva while Nadi thumped Ba 3-0.

The Gujarati tournament continues today.
