VANUA Levu champions Dreketi made an explosive start in the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants premier division hammering fellow Northerners Bua 5-0 at Govind Park in Ba yesterday.
The Johan Leewai coached Dreketi team outclassed Bua with their superior attacking display.
Strikers Manjoor Khan and Melvin Kumar combined well for Dreketi. Melvin scored twice while the other goals came from Thomas Steiner, captain Sisa Valesua and replacement Saten Kumar.
Leewai said they played according to their game-plan.
He said the BOG was an ideal build-up for their premier division final play-off with Nasinu next week.
"We are happy with the positive start," Leewai said.
"This is our build-up to the premier division final.
"The boys did as they were told and we recorded a good score line.
"We will hold discussions on areas that we need to improve on.
"The set piece play is what needs improvement like the throws and free-kicks.
"Midfielder Thomas, last man down Vijendra Kumar and our two strikers Melvin and Manjoor stood out in the match."
