Lautoka�s goals came from striker Samuela Drudru in the 14th
minute, then by skipper Valerio Nawato in the 50th minute followed by two more
goals to Osea Vakatalesau and Mohammed Shazil in the dying stages of the second
half.

Despite a brave effort by the Northerners their defences
were torn apart by some very precisely orchestrated attacks. Amazing.

However, Dreketi got a standing ovation when they scored a
consolation goal to their striker 
Sanaila Waqanicakau.

There efforts were however further undone when Asneel Raju
scored an own goal.

Lautoka Kamal Swami hoped that their performance would
continue throughout the tournament when they would be playing against the other
teams.
