Shop N Save Lautoka has qualified for the 2015 Pacific Cup.

Shop N Save Lautoka has qualified for the 2015 Pacific Cup after defeating 4R Electric Ba 2-1 at Govind Park, Ba yesterday.

The ‘Men in Black’ started well in the first-half with their strong attacking skills which allowed Mavileko Nakama to score their first goal in the first two minutes. Ba looked more aggressive enjoying more possession.

It was not long when Lautoka spoiled the party in the 24th minute when Dave Radrigi scored the equaliser.

The two were at 1-1 at the breather. The ‘Blues’ lifted the momentum in the second-half winning more possessions which allowed Radrigi to make the winning goal in the 52nd minute.

Lautoka coach Lambert Sarju was impressed with the player’s performance.

“I am so happy for what the boys have achieved. We could have scored more goals but miscommunication on field cost us. The next step now is the IDC,” Sarju said.

Ba Football secretary Iliyaz Khan also echoed the same sentiments and said their next aim now was the IDC next month.

“Hats off to the boys; they gave an excellent performance. Lautoka gave us a good game and we look forward to the IDC now,” Khan said.
