LAUTOKA 2 – SUVA 0

Lautoka 2 (Vonu 35’, 90’)

 

Shop N Save Reebok Lautoka midfielder Jone Vono Junior is back at his best form.

This was after he scored twice as the Blues defeated Suva 2-0 in the Courts Inter-District Championship at Govind Park in Ba yesterday.

 

What happened: Lautoka was definitely the team with goalkeeper Senirusi Bokini making some daring saves.

In the backline Samuela Kautoga, Zibraaz Sahib, Kavaia Rawaqa, Alvin Avinesh, Kolinio Sivoki, and Ratu Josevata Dugucagi played well.

But Vono Junior was the toast for the side after he scored in the 35th minute.

Half time: Lautoka 1 – 0 Suva.

Suva had to dig deep but fell  short in the end.

The capital city had the services of Antonio Tuivuna, Nickhil Chand, Sakaraia Naisua, Rusiate Matarerega, Madhwan Goundar, Tomasi Uculoa, Waisake Navunigasau, and Maciu Dunadamu but could not function well.

Vono Jnr sealed the win in the 90th minute.

With four points, Lautoka will face Dreketi today while Suva will need to defeat Nadi by a clear five goals to stand a chance of progressing.

 

Big Play: Jone Vono Junior proved his worth yet again for the Blues.

 

Star turn: Goalkeeper Senirusi Bokini was in top form.

 

Comments: Lautoka coach Lambert Sarju said, “Vono is a good player and he knows where to be in the right time which is an advantage to our side. We are one step closer to  making it into the semifinals but we need to prepare well against Dreketi.”

Suva coach Gurjit Singh said, “It was hard luck as we had some new players. We lacked control in midfield and we need to step up in our next match against Nadi.”
