Nadi retains Veterans title

Nadi successfully defended the RC Manubhai/APCO Coatings Fiji International Veterans tournament title at Churchill Park today after beating Tavua 1-0 in the final.

Nippy marksman Prem Junior netted the winner for the JK Builders sponsored Jetsetters who boasted the likes of goalkeeper Waisiki Batina, Ponipate Naulu, Watisoni Voli, Maika Waqa, Emosi Baleinuku and Maika Kasami.

Midfielder Kasami, who was instrumental in all their matches, was named the Player of the Tournament.

The Lambert Sarju coached side earlier in the day overcame Rewa 3-1 in the semifinal while Tavua overcame Ba Legends 2-1.

And in the quarterfinals last night, Nadi defeated NZ Labasa 2-0, Rewa over Rakiraki Legends 1-0, Tavua beat Suva Masters 2-0 and Ba Legends registered a 1-0 win over Nasinu.

Nadi walked away $4000 richer while Tavua received $1500 for reaching the final.
