Labasa striker, Christopher Wasasala, redeemed himself in front of his home fans by scoring three goals in their 4-0 win over Ba in the Digicel Premier League clash at Subrail Park on Saturday.

The win lifted Labasa to the sixth po­sition of the DPL points table with 19 points from 15 games played.

Wasasala told SUNsports that it was their faith in God that allowed them to redeem themselves from a disappoint­ment 2-1 loss to Lautoka.

He said the player’s commitment to the game plan and the trust in their game systems caught Ba off-guard.

The star striker thanked Ba for a tough game as they managed to hold off experienced players like Malakai Tiwa, Narendra Rao, Praneel Naidu and Saveneca Nakalevu from scoring.

“The good work does not end here as we have to build on and lift this perfor­mance next week,” Wasasala said.

He indicated that his combination with fellow striker, Ratu Anare, has developed and is confident that with more game time they are going to form a lethal combination.

“We are a team and the win was the result of defence turned attack where our goalkeeper, Simione Tamanisau, led by example with those brilliant saves.

“I’ll continue to work hard and prove my critics wrong. Winning by four goals speak volume and fans should appreciate the efforts put in.”

Labasa coach, Ravneel Pratap, be­lieved his team used their chances wisely.

Pratap said their players never held back as they knew Ba would field an experienced side.

“We played one touch football and frustrated Ba into making silly er­rors”.

He said winning by more than a goal would boost their confidence level.

“We will not take things for granted as these four goals are just for this game. “We will work hard for the remaining league games and the upcoming Battle of Giants (BOG) tournament,” he said.
