Ba faces Lautoka in schools final

DEFENDING champions Ba will face neighbours Lautoka in the final of the primary schools division during the Courts Inter District Championship tomorrow.

This is after both teams remained unbeaten after the second day of their round-robin competition.

Yesterday, Ba Sangam School student Iliasa Drosebe scored a hat-trick for the home side as they downed Nadogo 4-0 at the academy ground.

The win was enough to earn Ba a spot in the final after they edged Rewa 1-0 on Thursday.

Drosebe, the Class Eight student, displayed good dribbling skills to net three goals.

Ba led 1-0 at half-time.

Ratu Dau, the son of former Ba rep Josaia Dau, scored the other goal for the home team.

Ba looked better organised in the second fixture using the length of the field well.

Ba coach Tevita Seru said the boys had lifted their performance.

He said the changes to the line- up made the difference.

"It was a better performance from the boys," Seru said.

"We had a stern talk with them after the first game against Rewa and also gave them words of encouragement. We made a few changes in the line-up bringing in a few of the under-12 boys. They really performed to expectations.

"We minimised our mistakes. The idea was to score many goals because Lautoka had defeated Nadogo by four goals earlier. The boys took their opportunities well utilising the flanks and penetrating through the Nadogo defence. Iliasa was our star in the final last year scoring two goals."

In another match yesterday, Lautoka defeated Rewa 3-0.

Lautoka and Ba will face off in the final round-robin match at 8.30am today.
