Keeper stars as Dreketi holds Nadi

Goalkeeper Petero Namoce Junior featured prominently as Dreketi held Nadi 1-1 in their opening match of the 2016 Courts Inter District Championship (IDC) at the ANZ Stadium in Suva today.

The Northerners made a brilliant start to the match and opened their account in the 9th minute through lanky marksman Sanaila Waqanicakau.

Nadi strikers Rusiate Matarerega and Anish Khem were denied on three occasions by the goalkeeper as Dreketi went to the break with a 1-0 lead.

A tactical change by Nadi which saw Ame Votoniu move upfront paid dividends for them as he slammed in the equalizer early in the second half.

Namoce displayed his heroic skills and denied Nadi three more chances- one right at the closing stages of the match where he daringly dived on the feet of Ilimotama Jese and made the save.

National Hire sponsored Dreketi faces Ba in its next at 1pm tomorrow while Nadi will meet Rewa at 5pm.
