Former Fijian Under-17 striker Francis Catarogo was the toast of the Lami football side when he scored twice in their 4-0 win over Sa­vusavu yesterday.

“I’ve moved from Nadogo to Lami,” Catarogo told SUN­sports.

“I’m looking forward to the IDC and hope I could help Lami win this tournament.”

Francis is the son of former national football striker Solo­mone Catarogo.

The Tengy sponsored- Lami side took time to settle down as Savusavu took early control with veteran defender Pene Erenio dictating play from the back as he set-up Asaeli Herit­age and Iliavi Katonitabua.

Lami drew first blood in the 33rd minute when Ravikash Krishna slammed in the first goal and again in the dying minutes of the first half Tan­iela Rakariva slotted in the second goal.

With a 2-0 lead in the second half, Lami missed a couple of scoring opportunities as Sa­vusavu goalkeeper Marika Se­rukalou pulled off a few saves.

But in the 73rd minute a Ra­kariva cross saw Catarogo scoring the third goal from a powerful header and in the 80th minute a loose ball in front of the goal saw Catarogo toe in his second goal for a 4-0 lead.

It was not Savusavu’s day when referee Jone Ravouvou dishing a red card on Erenio for elbowing with the penalty from Waisake Ravuiwasa be­ing saved by Serukalou.

TAILEVU/NAITASIRI WIN

In the final senior division match, Tailevu/Naitasiri wal­loped Rakiraki 4-1.

Tailevu/Naitasiri coach Tagi Vonolagi said his players played well but the wet and uneven ground affected their game.

“We’ll play Savusavu tomor­row and despite their result today, they are still a good team and we’ll not take them light­ly,” he said.
