Setareki Hughes scored twice as Food City Rewa defeated Hyperchem Lautoka 3-2 in the Group B clash of the Punjas BOG tournament at Churchill Park.

Lautoka took the lead with a Netani Doli goal in the first half however it did not take Rewa long to equalise.

Assisted by Tevita Waranivalu, Hughes broke the Lautoka defense and scored for Rewa.

Defender, Peniame Drova increased Rewa's lead to 2-1 as he headed the ball in the Lautoka goalmouth.

Lautoka kept looking for opportunities and scored through a long-range effort from Malakai Rakula.

Rewa had the final say as Hughes kept Lautoka defenders busy and punished them with a left-foot strike.

Hughes says the focus is now on Nadi.

Lautoka's Kolinio Sivoki also missed a penalty in the game as his shot hit the post.
