Avinesh nails winner

Maciu Malo
Monday, April 21, 2014

LAUTOKA soccer rep Alvin Avinesh scored a crucial goal for Lautoka Sangam team to book a spot in today's TIV Sangam IDC soccer semi-final.

Avinesh combined well with his Lautoka Blues teammates Salesh Bula Sami and Arvindra Naidu in their quest to defend the title.

Lautoka had many scoring chances but the tough Nadi defenders gave the Lautoka forwards a good run for their money before Avinesh scored the winner in the dying stages of the game.

Nadi gave its best but it was the combination and skills of the Lautoka trio that enabled the Sugar City boys to secure a 1-0 win.

Tournament official Gopal Naidu said Lautoka was stretched to the wire by a gutsy Nadi outfit.

He admitted the class and experience of the Lautoka reps made the difference for the two teams.

Naidu is also rating Lautoka to win the title after its impressive outing over the past three days.

"Lautoka is highly likely to defend the title after their narrow win to Nadi," he said.

"The side has some experienced and skillful players in its outfit and it will be tough for any team to beat Lautoka."

The semi-final and finals will be held at Lawaqa Park today.
