DEFENDING champion Drasa Secondary School is on the right track to successfully defend the Vodafone Secondary School Soccer Championships under-19 title.

This, after the Lautoka-based side defeated Naleba College 1-0 and Kamil Muslim College 2-0 in yesterday's pool game at Ba's Govind Park.

The side humbled Kamil College who earlier thumped Saraswati College 5-1 in their first match.

Striker and national U20 rep Antonio Tuivuna combined well with Etuate Tabua to score a goal each for Drasa against the host team.

Coach Primal Reddy said his troops rose to the occasion when it mattered.

He said the players performed well against a tough Kamil College outfit.

"We are happy to win our first two pool games and we are focusing on maintaining the consistency in the remaining pool games," said Reddy.

"There are some minor injury concerns to the side but we are hopeful they will recover in time for our next game.

"The boys played very well and I thank them for their effort."

Reddy said the side needed a win against Nawai Secondary School and Saraswati College in their remaining pool games later today.

"We need to win at least one game to qualify to the elimination stages," he said.

"We will take each game as they come and we will try to maintain our unbeaten run."

The pool games continue today.
