Rewa ends drought

Maciu Malo
Monday, April 21, 2014

FORMER national rep and curent Rewa coach Marika Rodu guided the Rewa Gujarati soccer team to win the Gujarati IDC title after a lapse of 24 years.

But it was USP student Kunal Chauhan that broke the hearts of the Nadi team scoring the winner on penalty shoot-out to beat Nadi 6-5 in the final at Lautoka's Churchill Park yesterday.

The 19-year-old, who missed a goal in the extra-time, made amends in the crucial stage of the final. Chauhan said scoring the winning goal was an achievement he would always cherish.

"I made a mistake in the extra-time for failing to score a goal but I am satisfied to score the winning goal in the penalty shoot-out," he said.

"I am proud to help the team win after Rewa's last win in 1990."

Rodu said it was the determination of his troops that made the team to win the title.

"Nadi was the best team during the competition but it was the determination of our boys that made us champion this afternoon," said Rodu.

"As a coach I am glad to be part of this historical moment in helping the side to win the title after 24 long years."

Rodu also thanked the team management and the fans for supporting the team.
