LAUTOKA Blues soccer team has secured a spot in the O’League semi-finals after defeating AS Dragons 2-1 in the quarter-final match in Tahiti last night.
The Sugar City boys started the game strongly — scoring the first goal through Praneel Naidu early in the first spell. But a lapse of concentration allowed Dragons skipper Tamatoa Tetauira level tyhe game 1-all.
It was a see saw battle in the second spell as Lautoka defender Brian Kaltack broke the hearts of the home fans when he headed in a winner from a corner kick to seal the game.
Team president Abdul Kadar commended the players and the team management for the teamwork.
Line-up: Beniamino Mateinaqara, Dave Radregai, Cory Chettleburgh, Samuela Drudru, Kolinio Sivoki, Brian Kaltack, Jone Vesikula, Kavaia Rawaqa, Praneel Naidu, Osea Vakatalesau, Benjamin Totori.
