First time winners

THE Nadi Muslim College under-17 team created history last weekend by qualifying for the Fiji Secondary School Inter District Championship for the first time.

After winning the district competition a fortnight ago, Nadi Muslim clinched the South West zone title by defeating Natabua High School 1-0 and Sigatoka Methodist 2-1.

Mohammed Shafeem scored the only goal against Natabua while Dorsant Naidu and Sata Tale scored the goals against Sigatoka Methodist.

Nadi Muslim head coach Nadeem Mohammed said their success was based on the months of preparation ahead of the playoffs.

Mohammed said the players sacrificed a lot to win the two titles.

"We came out the best ahead of Natabua and Sigatoka Methodist who were both champion teams in their districts," he said.

"The boys moved away from the game plan at times so we need to regroup and improve on the weaker areas before the IDC.

"The support from all is just amazing so there is no reason why this team should not fail."

Nadi Muslim principal Mohammed Khalid Hassan said the special achievements by the students and teachers have not gone unnoticed.

He said the management was very supportive and would ensure that the victorious team was rewarded.

"The only time we won a zone title was with the U15 in 2010," Hassan said.

"This is the first time we have won the U17 zone title.

"I must thank all parents and business houses for being behind the team.

"The officials and players have made the school proud with this historic win."
