Suva wins challenge

RAVINESH Karan Singh scored a hat-trick to help Suva reclaim the King Irving Cup yesterday.

His three goals and one from Leone Damudamu gave the hosts a 4-3 come from behind win over Rewa at the ANZ Stadium.

Rewa came into the match with the King Irving Cup in their hands and were leading 3-1 early in the second half thanks to two goals from Shelvin Prasad and one from Ratu Semi Dileqa.

But coach Marika Rodu said his boys lost concentration in the second half and allowed Suva to claw their way back into the match.

"We did good attacking and managed to score two goals but then in the end of the match we lost focus and the boys didn't concentrate on the ball and were slow in counter attack," he said.

The win was the first time that Gurjeet Singh has won the King Irving Cup and said it was a good build-up for his side ahead of the Vodafone Fiji FACT which would be held three weeks later at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

"It was a good build-up for us and we played really well in the second half," he said.

"We were down 1-3 but we managed to come back and the players did what they were told in the second half."

Singh said they would try to play more warm-up games before the Fiji FACT.
