Rewa suffers second defeat

Rewa suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the USA All Stars in its second Pacific Cup fixture today at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

After going down 2-0 to Lautoka last night, the Delta Tigers were aiming for a better outing but a well timed header from a set-piece by former national marksman Kamal Hassan put the USA All Stars up in the 16th minute.

USA led 1-0 at the break but a penalty in the 37th minute by Taione Kerevanua leveled scores.

Striker Jon Chandler Hoffman sealed the win for the USA All Stars six minutes before fulltime and a surge of late attacks by Rewa was well sustained by the Americans as they held on to secure their first points of the tournament.

USA All Stars now have 3 points after 2 matches and is on a BYE tomorrow while Rewa which is yet to secure a point will face Auckland All Stars at 5.45pm.
