The 2018 Vodafone Premier League champions Lautoka have set their eyes on winning the Courts Interdistrict Championship next month.

The Kamal Swamy coached- side ended their VPL campaign on a high note when they thrashed Rewa 4-1 at Churchill Park, Lautoka yesterday. The Blues since their establishment in 1938 have won their fifth league title.

Meanwhile, in a thrilling encounter Nadi beat Suva 2-0 at Prince Charles Park, Nadi.

What happened: Lautoka striker Benjamin Totori opened their account in the 5th minute before Samuela Drudru extended their lead in the 25th minute.

Halftime: Lautoka 2- 0 Rewa.

The Blues came back strongly in the second spell with Drudru driving in their third goal in 53rd minute.

Also making his debut for Lautoka was Bakalevu Moceimereke Jnr, who is the son of former Lautoka striker Maika Waqa.

Rewa managed to pull one goal back through a Posiano Kalisito header in the 76th minute but Blues had the last laugh in the 80th minute when Jone Vesikula smacked in their fourth goal

Comments: Lautoka coach Kamal Swamy said: “It was important to end on a high note as we will be defending the IDC title and later the OFC Champions League where we have launched our preparations as well.

“This is good start as we need to be focused and positive at the same time.

Rewa coach Lorima Dau said: “We were not able to pick up from the breakdown.

“We also were not able to work as a team as we lacked in a few areas. We willl work on those areas before the IDC starts.”
