WINGER Vucago Bainitabua guided Army Lautoka to a 15-7 win against Army Engineers of Suva to retain the Bougainville Bowl at Churchill Park in Lautoka yesterday.

Bainitabua was on the radar with his boot slotting over five penalties.

The hosts came from behind to win after Army Engineers led 7-6 with a converted try from Netani Vora.

Army Lautoka team manager Iliesa Koroinawaciva said they were happy with the win.

Koroinawaciva said they lifted their performance from the match against Force Training Group from last week.

"Really happy with the win, it was tough and that is what we expected from the Engineers," he said.

"We had to come back from behind to win this match.

"We were better prepared from last week and this time we lifted our performance to 90 per cent."

Army Lautoka wrested the Bougainville Bowl from Navy a fortnight ago.

This was their second defence.

Army Logistics from Suva will challenge the holders next.
