Rokolio Seals Win For Vatukoula

 

Lekima Rokolio kept Vatukoula’s chance alive after scoring in the 2-1 win over Bua during the Courts IDC senior division match yesterday.

The 29-year-old has been playing for Vatukoula for the past four years.

“I feel very happy and excited about the win and even more because I scored the winning goal,” Rokolio said.

“I have been playing soccer ever since I attended Tavua Primary School.

“We worked and trained hard to get where we are today and this win will be a major boost for us when we play Seaqaqa.

“Hopefully I can repeat what I did against Bua to help Vatukoula qualify for the semi final.”

A happy coach Niko Rokomatu said they came into the game expecting nothing less than a win.

“We knew what a win would do for us and it has given us a new lease of life to qualify for the semifinals,” Rokomatu said.

“The boys did well and I am proud of them for not giving up. We will work even harder to win against Seaqaqa.

“So I take my hat off to the boys for doing the job and I hope we can repeat the same in our last pool game.”
