Maciu Malo
Monday, April 21, 2014

DEFENDING champion Nasinu is on course to retain the Fiji Muslim League IDC soccer title by defeating Lautoka 4-2 in a quarter-final match on a penalty shoot-out at Xavier College ground yesterday.

The two teams were levelled 2-all at fulltime before Nasinu kicked out Lautoka's hopes of winning the title after both teams failed to score during extra time.

Nasinu will face Cuvu in the semi-final after the Nadroga-based side ended Valelevu's unbeaten run in the tournament.

Valelevu was impressive during the pool play, unfortunately the side failed to reach the semi-final after going down 2-4 to Cuvu on a penalty shoot-out.

Tournament organiser Mohammed Rafiq said Nasinu would be the team to beat in the final. The semi-finals and final will be held today.
