The Digicel Baby Kulas went down 1-nil to New Zealand in the final of the Oceania Football Confederation Under-16 Championship in Tahiti last night.

In a gallant defensive effort, Fiji defended its line for 93 minutes as New Zealand piled on pressure.

It was in the fourth minute of injury time when New Zealand’s Katie Pugh scored from a through ball, breaking the hearts of the young Fijian girls.

New Zealand will now represent Oceania at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in the Dominican Republic next year.
