THE Ravinesh Kumar coached Fiji under-19 team maintained its unbeaten run on the New Zealand tour with a 2-1 win over Northern Region Football League Men's Division One club Metro on Tuesday.

Metro scored an own goal before levelling the fixture.

Ba striker Samuela Nabenia scored the winner with a 30 metre drive.

Metro FC is one of the oldest clubs in New Zealand, established in 1899.

It was originally named Tabernacle-Metropolitan Club by its founder, the Baptist Church.

National coaching director Juan Carlos Buzzetti said the cold condition was a challenging factor for them.

"It was one of those colder nights that affected our boys a bit but they managed to win 2-1 in what we can label as one of the toughest game of the tour so far," he said.

"Metro played very well, they were a young team captained by New Zealand rep Ian Hogg."
