Ba youngster, Samuela Na­voce hopes his Ba side will rectify their mistakes and come back stronger tomorrow.

This was after they lost to Rewa, 1-0 on Sunday.

The Men In Black face Labasa to­morrow in their last game of the 2021 Digicel Premier League at Churchill Park, Lautoka.

The 18-year-old central defender who started as youth player had joined the senior side last year.

“I know the game was not on our side, we have set our focus on the next game- which will be our last game for the season,” Navoce said.

“I will improve my defending and come back strong against Labasa.”

Ba is fifth on the league table with 19 points while the Babasiga Lions is one point ahead.

The former Natabua High School student was motivated by his fa­ther, Netani Moce, to play football and hopes to don the white jumper in the near future.

“I started from under 10 to U14, representing Ba then later joined the youth side up to last year.

“I also represented Fiji in the U16 and was part of the national U17 team which was the first team to tour Israel in 2019.

“I will work hard to wear the white jersey.”

Navoce hails from Tavualevu, Ta­vua and shares maternal links to Vunaniu, Serua.

His father, Moce was a former Lautoka goalkeeper, a position Na­voce would like to play in one day.
