Maciu Malo
Monday, April 21, 2014

WAIYAVI defeated Suva 6-1 in the penalty shoot-out to secure a spot in the Andhra soccer IDC semi-final at Ba's Govind Park yesterday.

High after its quarter-final 3-0 win over Sanasana, the side held Suva to a scoreless draw before the game was decided on penalty shoot-out.

Fitness and team combination were contributing factors to the side's unbeaten run.

In the other quarter-final games yesterday, Suva thumped Malolo 3-1 while Nadi defeated Vaqia 4-3 on penalty shoot-out.

Underdogs Qalau stunned Ba 2-1 in the last quarter-final before going down to Nadi 1-3 in the semi-final.

Tournament official Satya Naidu rated Waiyavi as one of the best teams in the tournament.

"The team is laced with young and talented players with fitness being their secret weapon," said Naidu.
