Lautoka beats Nadi, tops Group A

A late penalty by Zibraaz Sahib saw Lautoka beat Nadi 1-0 at Churchill Park tonight and top Group A of the 2017 Courts Inter District Championship (IDC).

Nadi with a slim chance to qualify threw everything into the match and played with a lot of determination and confidence.

Goalkeeper Samuela Tamanisau played an outstanding game and denied Samuela Drudru, Josefata Dugucagi, Siotame Kubu and Christopher Wasalasala on many occasions.

A late surge by the Blues found replacement Valerio Nawatu in the clear but a dangerous foul on him by Nadi sweeper Ilimotama Jese resulted in the match winning penalty in the dying moments.

Lautoka finishes with 7 points and will face Rewa in the first semi-final at 3pm on Saturday while Group B winners Ba will take on Suva in the second semi-final at 5pm.
