Qalica shines as Nadroga clinches Senior Division’s IDC title in Fiji

Bua and Nadroga clashed at ANZ Stadium in Suva to decide which team would lift the trophy of 2020 Senior Division’s Inter-District Championship. After facing some problems in the first minutes, Nadroga got back on track to beat their opponents by 3-0.

Bua started the match putting lots of pressure on Nadroga’s defense but they did not manage to score while Leisari Qalica opening the scoreboard for Nadroga with a shot from outside the box in the 27th minute. Things got worse for Bua as goalkeeper Ritesh Chand got injured. He was replaced by Sumit Chand in the 33rd minute.

Nadroga extended their lead in the beginning of the second half when Osea Vakatalesau scored from the penalty spot. Fifteen minutes later, Qalica managed to score his second goal of the day to put the Stallions ahead by three goals. At the final whistle, the score was 3-0 in favour of Nadroga that lifted the trophy. You can check the highlights of this match by clicking here.

Nadroga is having a wonderful season as the team coached by Johnny Williams is still unbeaten in 2020. Despite that, they need to stay focused on their main goal: winning Vodafone Senior League to book a spot at Vodafone Premier League – the top-tier league from Fiji. Nadroga will face Bua in the Senior League’s final next month.
