RAVINESH Karan Singh helped Cuvu lift the Sanatan soccer title at Prince Charles Park in Nadi yesterday.

Cuvu defeated Ba 4-1 in the final.

Singh scored a brace of goals in the match while Nathan Kumar and Joseph Mishra scored one each.

Rineshwar Lal scored the lone goal for Ba.

In the semi-finals Cuvu beat Labasa 3-1 while Ba downed Nadroga 1-0.

Cuvu coach/player Nitulesh Mali said they were happy to win the tournament after 25 years.

Nitulesh said Ba went into the final as the favourite.

"We have been participating in the tournament for a long time but have never taken the trophy back home," Nitulesh said.

"I want to thank the players, their family members and all the supporters. The boys have done wonders. This win is in the memory of my late father Vinod Mali.

"We assembled a very young team and the youngest was a 15-year-old. Ba was always the favourite reaching the final for the last couple of years.

"The boys stepped up to win and we hope to maintain the same squad next year."

With the win Cuvu has secured a spot in the Sanatan World Cup in Sydney, Australia in October.

Ba team player Shalen Lal said the better team won on the day.

He said they would try and win the title as hosts next year.
