Pillay Gar­ments Raki­raki de­feated Lami 3-1 in the Voda­fone Se­nior League at the Fiji Foot­ball Acad­emy in Suva yes­ter­day. Vet­eran Salesh Sami scored twice for the Blues in the first half with Ron­ald Lawrence seal­ing the win in the sec­ond half. Ash­win Singh scored for Lami. “The boys played re­ally well,”Raki­raki coach Pragdeesh Gounder said.

The team will play Bua at 3pm to­day. “If we beat Bua we will qual­ify for the Su­per Premier divi­sion so the boys will give their best shot,” he said. Mean­while, Lami coach Deepak Chand high­lighted lack of prepa­ra­tion as the cause of their down­fall. “One of the fac­tors was that our play­ers were red carded dur­ing the Courts IDC and they were un­avail­able,”Chand said. The wet weather af­fects our train­ing but good luck to the Raki­raki team.” Edit­ed­byLeoneCabenatabua
