The first day of 2020 Inter-District Championship (IDC) is over and Nadroga fans did not have to wait for the next match to celebrate a big win as he team coached by Johnny Williams have thrashed Nadogo by 11-3 at Uprising Resort Ground in Navua.
Taniela Raubula scored four goals while team captain Tomasi Tuicakau and Jonas Naceva found the net three times each to lead Nadroga against Nadogo. Goalkeeper Sakeo Taganeca scored Nadroga’s remaining goal from the penalty spot in the 56th minute. The bad news is that 27-year-old midfielder Waisea Tale saw the red card in the second half which means that he is not going to be available for the next match against Tavua.
