LAUTOKA won the boy's under-16 title at the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants after remaining unbeaten throughout the three days.

The "Baby Blues" drew nil-all with the strong Northern Selection yesterday to claim the annual schools soccer title.

Earlier Lautoka defeated Ba 1-0, Nadi 2-1, Tavua/Rakiraki 2-1 and Nadroga 3-0 in the round robin competition.

With the victory, the U16 players have laid the challenge to the senior Blues team to make it a double title in the tournament.

Lautoka U16 coach Mohammed Shanim praised captain Shavnit Deo of Central College for his leadership qualities.

He said it was mission accomplished with the title in the bag.

"I was very impressed with the performance of the boys," Shanim said.

"The combinations worked because the boys had a lot of discipline.

With this win I can say that grassroots development is strong in Lautoka. I hope that there is no break in the development program.

"They stood tall against the powerful Northern Selection team.

"We want to thank the captain Shavnit for his leadership role in guiding the team and he has earned selection in the Fiji U17 training squad."

Lautoka finished the competition with 13 points while the Northern Selection was second with ten points.
