UNDERDOGS Natabua High School pulled off a shocking win against AD Patel College in the under-15 category during the Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools Soccer Championship at Govind Park yesterday.

The Lautoka school edged the defending champions 3-1 after being locked one all during the half-time break.

Team manager Ranjeev Singh said the victory was a morale booster for the team.

"It was very nerve-racking to play against some of the biggest names in U15 soccer, especially with the likes of Vashist Muni College and defending champion AD Patel," he said.

"I think the boys pulled through and played very well.

What we are looking forward to now is focusing on our game plan for the match tomorrow (today)."

Singh said the competition had been the toughest they had played in so far.

"Competition is increasing year after the other."

He said the team now had to work on fixing basic errors if they were to win their final match today.

"We are taking it step by step.

"The boys need to be more confident while playing and they need to improve on the basic things."

In the other U15 match, Shree Guru Nanak Khalsa College and Vashist Muni College drew the match scoring one goal each.
