THE Vodafone Fiji Under-16 side was thumped 3-nil by Tahiti at the OFC U16 Championship in Solomon Islands today.

Fiji had defeated Samoa 3-2 in its first match on Monday but suffered a heavy defeat in its quest for a spot in the finals.

Tahiti started strong and kept pressing for the opener. They did manage to get in late in the first spell.

The opponents started the second spell just like they ended the first with a goal in the first two minutes and shortly after scored their third to seal the match.

Fiji plays New Caledonia in its last match at 11am on Sunday, September .
