Rewa, Labasa, Suva and Nadi have booked their spots in tomorrow’s Voda­fone Fiji FACT semifinals at Sub­rail Park, Labasa.

The first semi-final sees Rewa take on Nadi at 3pm while Suva face Labasa in the second semi-final at 5pm.

Last night, Labasa beat Ba 3-1 with Ilisoni Lolaivalu scoring twice while Apenisa Anare got the other. Ba’s consolation goal came from Sumeet Goundar.

Earlier on Vinz Works Suva field­ed a new-look side as they went down 2-1 to Lautoka.

The Capital City side rested key players like goalkeeper Beniami­no Mateinaqara and Chirstopher Wasasala.

Coach Babs Khan said: “We wanted to win the game but Lau­toka adapted well to the ground. It took us a while to get back into the game.

“For Ben and Chris, they were feeling unwell and will have to consult the medical team first if they fit for the semifinals.

“We will go back to the camp to see who we going to play for semis and how we going to play.”

What happened: Both teams started strongly, with Lautoka try­ing their best close the points dif­ference. And while adapting to the ground may have been tough for the Blues, they kept attcking.

Veteran Zibraaz Sahib scored their first goal in the 18th minute after veteran Suva defender Re­mueru Tekiata fouled a Lautoka midfielder.

Halftime: Lautoka 1 – 0 Suva

Suva regrouped and replied in the second half through captain Ravnesh Karan Singh in the 51st minute. Lautoka scored the win­ner in the dying minutes from Ko­linio Sivoki.
