NORTHPOLE Friends from Valelevu, Nasinu walked away $1500 richer after winning the Islands Apparel/Hai's Autoport (Canada) Ltd sponsored futsal carnival at the Nadi Muslim College grounds on Sunday.

Altaaf Sahib a former national futsal rep starred in the encounter scoring all the goals for the Northpole Friends side which defeated Marriott 3-1 in the final.

Altaaf scored the first goal and Nadi rep Ratu Josefata Dugucagi equalised for Marriott before halftime.

Northpole Friends acclimatised to the wet conditions well and scored a further two goals through Altaaf in the second spell.

The side from Valelevu had services of Mira Sahib, Ravinesh Karan Singh and Nathan Kumar.

Northpole Friends captain Edwin Reddy said the side had participated in the tournament for all the three editions.

He said they bombed out of the semi-finals of the last tournament in 2015.

Tournament co-ordinator Nadeem Mohammed said last year's tournament was postponed to this month because of some unforeseen circumstances.

Mohammed said this year's tournament was likely to be held November.

In the veteran's final, Sadhai Motors DCA beat Lautoka All Stars 3-2 in a penalty shoot-out.
