Labasa made a good start on day one of the 2018 Courts IDC as they walloped newly promoted Nasinu 5-1 at the ANZ Stadium, Suva, yesterday.

The Babasiga Lions roared the loudest in the first 45 minutes as they dominated play.

Led by senior players Ilisoni Logaivau, Le­kima Gonerau and Taniela Waqa, the Ba­basiga Lions played an entertaining game.

Striker Christopher Wasasala scored the first goal and gave Nasinu no time to settle with former Tavua striker Vilitati Kautoga scoring a double.

Halftime: Labasa 3-0 Nasinu

Nasinu regrouped and lifted the momen­tum in the second half enabling Nasoni Mereke to score.

But Labasa were too hot to handle scoring two more goals to Wasasala and Pita Levaci.

Big Play; Labasa striker Vilitati Kautoga played a key role, a player to watch.

Star Turn; Nasinu put up a good fight in the second half.

Comments; Labasa coach Johan Leewai said: “I’m happy with Vilitati’s performance. Lau­toka is next for us it will be a tough but we just had to play our best.”

Nasinu coach Nathan Shivam said: “Most of the players are playing for the first time in the Premier division and it’s a learning ex­perience for them”.
