South Bay players after NAFSA win over Calgary Tavua South Bay players after NAFSA win over Calgary Tavua It took South Bay a good 8 years'to bury the hatchet and claim the NAFSA tourney by beating Calgary Tavua 5-4 in the shootout at the North Surrey Oval.


South Bay took an early lead following a defensive Calgary gaffe.

Ba rep Alvin Singh brought Calgary Tavua back into the game from an absolute screamer free-kick.

South Bay technical director and current Suva soccer coach Gurjeet Singh was on cloud nine after his second NAFSA win with South Bay.

"It was a good win for us", he said. "This is the second time I have won with South Bay. I'm ecstatic".

Gurjeet was delighted with the standard of soccer and the performance of some of the players who featured in the two day tourney.

"The performance of some players were excellent. Our former Fiji players played extremely well".

Calgary Tavua who were reduced to 9 men played their hearts out. They denied the Americans any scoring chances following the sending off for dangerous play.

South Bay coach Ismail Mohammed could hardly contain himself after the win, said he is happy for winning the NAFSA tournament.

"I'm happy", Mohammed said.


"The boys showed true character".

Calgary Tavua coach Clive Francis told Sportsone it wasn't their day.

"Hats off to my players as we were down to nine players for most of the game and to hold a team of South Bay's quality is a remarkable feat", Francis said.

"We did more attacking and had more chances but opportunity failed us. I'm so proud of my team as they gave it all despite the setback".

Calgary Tavua will now turn its focus on Calgary Cup scheduled for Wednesday followed by the Dularie Cup coming weekend.
