Defending champions Ba will bat­tle rivals Labasa in the final of the 2019 Vodafone Women’s Inter-District Championship at Ratu Cakobau Park at 12pm today.

The Women-In-Black side thrashed Suva 9-4 in the first semi-final while Labasa walloped Tailevu/Naitasiri 9-0 in the sec­ond semi-final clash at the Fiji FA Acad­emy grounds in Vatuwaqa yesterday.

Speaking to SUNsports, Ba women’s football coach Naomi Cavasiga was over­whelmed with their performance and said they are confident of retaining the title to­day.

“We are excited for the win and the girls have put up a great performance today,” Cavasiga said

“Despite the wet and soggy ground the players still managed to prove themselves.

“Now that we have qualified to the finals we will make sure we defend that title as we are the champions.

“Reviving the competition after three years is a positive sign for women’s foot­ball in the country as we need more dis­trict level competition to allow upcoming players to get some exposure.

“We look forward to a tough game against Labasa in the final and are fully aware that they will come full prepared with more national reps playing for the side.”
