Maciu Malo
Wednesday, September 03, 2014

LAUTOKA soccer administrator Sanjay Prasad was satisfied with the performance of the team at the recent Inkk Mobile BOG tournament.

Prasad, who earlier predicted his team's win over the hot-favourite 4R Electric Ba, stated the side made their fans proud.

He said the team was impressive against Ba in the semi-finals unfortunately they fell short in the final.

"I have already stated before the semi-final that we will beat Ba," said Prasad.

"We had studied Ba's game plan prior to the game and we were confident of beating them.

"Even though we fell short in the final but I am satisfied with the outcome."

Prasad also confirmed the tournament was a good exposure for most young players in the side.

"This team is still developing and this tournament brought the best out in the boys especially the young players.

"We've got a good bunch of young boys and we are confident they are committed to Lautoka football."

The tournament also unearthed a new star in young goal- keeper Senirusi Bokini.

Bokini was the toast of the Blues against Ba when he stopped Avinesh Swammy's penalty kick in the extra-time and later stopped Jone Vesikula and Meli Codro's kicks in the penalty shootout.
