Lautoka Masters: Picture suppliedLautoka Masters: Picture suppliedLAUTOKA Masters won its first ever North American Fijian Soccer Association title after beating Edmonton Gold 3-0 in the final at the North Surrey Oval today.


Najim Zico scored a brace while teammate Zain Mohammed added his single for the championship.

Lautoka with a host of guest players started its NAFSA campaign on a low as they lost their opening game to Seattle USA 3-1 on Friday.

The result was overturned following a protest.

Zico, Patrick Junior and defender Nadim Mohammed were outstanding for Lautoka in the final.

Edmonton Gold had a few near goal scoring opportunities but they failed to capitalize.

The title gives the Lautoka management huge kudos, though not necessarily big financial benefit but at least the luxury of the prize money that was on the offer.

Lautoka beat Ba 1-0 in the semifinal, while Edmonton Gold won on a similar scoreline against Edmonton Viti to qualify for the grand finale.

In the NAFSA premier final, Vancouver’s Flagstaff FC lost to East Bay 2-1.
