What happened:

Shop N Save Lautoka came out on top as they won their first INKK Mobile Battle of the Giants beating Jack’s Nadi 2-1 at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori last night.

Lautoka started off with a quick goal from Ratu Josevata Dugucagi in the 14th minute.

Nadi had a few good chances to equalise but failed to do so.

In the 35th minute, Nadi’s luck changed with a goal from William Valentine, 1-1.

Halftime: Nadi 1-1 Lautoka

It was a slow start in the second spell; Lautoka made a brave attempt but were off target.

Lautoka’s constant pressure paid off with a goal from Jone Vono (Junior).

Nadi tried hard to make a comeback but luck was not on their side.

Star turn

Ratu Josevata Dugucagi scored two goals to give Lautoka their first win.

Big play

Nadi started off well but needed to make use of the  opportunities.

Comments

Shop N Save Lautoka coach Lambert Sarju, “We needed to lift our performance from our game against Tailevu-Naitasiri and that’s what we did. We stuck to our game plan and our structure.”

Jack’s Nadi manager Kamlesh Sami, “Everything was against us and we really need to look at what we are doing. There were some calls by the referee that we did not agree with but at the end of the day, it’s our fault.”
