XAVIER College defeated Ahmadhiya Muslim Secondary School 2-0 to be crowned the new Vodafone Fiji Secondary Schools soccer Under 19 final winner at Nadi’s Prince Charles Park this afternoon.

Strikers Simione Nabenu and Iliesa Gata scored a goal each for Xavier to create history for the school.

The side outclassed its opponents with sublime soccer skills and magnificent ground ball passes to secure a crucial victory.

Ahmadhiya gave its best but failed to break the brick wall defensive pattern of the Ba boys.

The win was the first for Xavier in the U19 competition.

Meanwhile, Xavier also won the U15, while Tabua College took out the U17 title and Vunimono winning the girls title.
