Young Nadi goalkeeper, Tevita Ravai denied Samuela Nabenia twice in the first five minutes of the match, tapping his attempts out.

But Nabenia was not going to be denied the third time around after a nice cross from Kavaia Rawaqa set up perfectly for the 26-year-old to head home the first goal in the seventh minute.

The Jetsetters had their chances but they just couldn’t quite finish them off.

Rewa’s second goal came five minutes before half-time.

Tevita Waranivalu showed some fancy footwork before passing to Iowane Matanisiga who kicked the ball high enough for brother Gabiriele Matanisiga to head the ball home.

The hosts led 2-0 at the breather.

The Rewa fans were on their feet again 20 minutes into the second spell with some nice touches from Nabenia and replacement striker, Epeli Valevou.

Valevou was the man to finish the job, tapping the ball into the net.

Nadi was finally on the scoreboard through Mosese Nauci in the dying minutes of the match.
