Southern Forest Fairtrade Auto Navua created the biggest upset this year when they defied all odds to defeat Vodafone Men In Black 2-1 at Govind Park this afternoon.

Second last placed in the points table, Navua put up a hefty performance to lead 1-0 against a star-studded Ba side. Bueli Nawatu scored Navua’s first goal.

Ba equalized early into the second spell but the 3000 plus crowd that gathered for morale support to their home side boosted 17-year old, Praneel Chand to score the winning goal.

“This is a historic win,” Anil Sharma, Navua president said.

“Consistency won us the game. We took Ba by surprise-we are a much younger and less experienced side. Navua has a young squad but they were determined.”

Sharma added this was a boost to their Courts Homecentres Inter-District Championship preparation later in the month.

“They have made me proud and the Navua people very happy.”

Ba needed to win this game to push Labasa off the top of the points table. After this loss, they remain at second spot with 15 points while Navua boosts eight points and still at second last spot.

This is their second win in the S6 Series while Ba has suffered two losses.

Navua has two games left to play with the fixtures yet to be confirmed.
