Western teams Ba, Lautoka and Nadi have qualified to the semi-finals of the 2019 Vodafone Fiji FACT scheduled to take place this Saturday at Lauto­ka’s Churchill Park.

This was after Ba defeated the de­fending champions Rewa 3-1 in the last Pool B match to top the group yesterday.

Ba striker Saula Waqa opened the scoring in the 26th minute and the outcome was never in doubt there­after.

Solomon Islander Darold Kakasi added another in in the 49th minute, before 19-year-old Kaliova Dau slot­ted in the penalty to confirm the win.

Rewa managed to get a consolation goal through former Labasa striker Gabrieli Matanasiga and bowed out of the tournament, having earlier won 3-0 against Nasinu before losing 3-1 to Nadi.

COMMENTS

Ba coach Ronil Kumar said: “Now we are going for recovery plan to assess any injuries. before planning our training, sessions based on that.

“I guess we really had a good outing in our pool games, a big lesson from yesterday’s game (2-2 draw with Nas­inu).”

Rewa coach Pita Rabo said: “We are out and now we will focus on our league match that is ahead of us in two weeks-time where we will take on Ba again.”
