Tavua and Rakiraki started their campaign on a high note in the Digicel Senior League Viti Levu Zone opener last weekend.
Tavua defeated Northland Tailevu 3-1 at Uprising Sports Center while Rakiraki overcame Lami 2-1 at Fiji FA Academy in Vatuwaqa.
Northland Tailevu coach Kritesh Prasad said the first match was always tough.
“First game is always tough and a learning ground and I am happy with the outcome which has given us to work harder in training now.”
“It’s back to the drawing board for us and we hope to bounce back in the second round,” said Prasad
“We have a very young team and I know they will improve game by game,”
Lami FA president Keshaw Ram Sharma said they played well.
“I think we played well but there is some weakness we have rectified and for sure we will work on it in our training this week before our next game,”
“They boys played well but lack concentration cost us three points,” said Sharma
The Digicel Senior League will be on break this weekend.
