The Sitiveni Racele-captained Nailaga Football Club defeated Racecourse FC 2-0 during round one of the Metal Works sponsored Ba Football Association local league at Govind Park in Ba last Sunday.

Nailaga FC vice-captain Luke Savu, a naval officer and son of former national/Ba striker Taito Bula, is a star in the making. He scored the first goal in the 15th minute.

In the 70th minute, Raicele sealed the win.

Coach Bula says they aim to play in the National Club Championship (NCC) later in the year.

“It is a dream for all clubs to make the NCC,” Bula said. And I’m happy that we’ve won the first game as there is $5000 for the winner this year. In previous years, the winner gets $500 to $2000.” Ba FA secretary Iliyaz Khan said Round One matches was well contested. The match between Rovers and Wailailai Sonic was a cracker,” Khan said. Defending champions Four R FC laced with district reps hammered Tauvegavega FC 5-0, while Wailailai Sonic edged Rovers 3-2 in an epic battle. “Four R as usual was serious in defending their title, and there was a good response from the clubs and their fans,” he said.

Round Two fixtures will be released today. In other results Veisaru defeated FSC 2-0, Tauvegavega Youth drew with Young Brothers 0 – 0, while GM Ba lost both games by default to Tauvegavega and Four R for not turning up.
