Rewa didn’t have their Coach Rodicks Singh on the bench after he copped a red card last weekend.

The Delta Tigers had national women’s rep and OFC Ambassador Naomi Waqanidrola in Singh’s place today.

Lautoka consistenly attacked the Rewa goal mouth with Sairusi Nalaubu, Dave Rodrigai and Malakai Rakula leading the charge.

It was not until the 43rd minute when Rewa conceded an owl goal from a Rakula cross which was headed in by Peniame Drova.

The Blues showed their class inside the first 10 minutes of the second half when Nalaubu sneaked home their second goal.

Nalaubu could’ve scored a few more goals but just couldn’t find the mark.

However, he sealed the win with another goal in added time.
