SIMIONE Nabenu is a chip off the old block.
The Arya Kanya Pathshala Primary School student is the son of former rugged Ba defender Waisea Nabenu.
Simione, who is in Class Eight, stood as a brick wall in defence and scored the lone goal for Ba in the 1-0 win against Labasa in the Courts IDC primary school division at Nadovu Park yesterday.
Simione netted in the first half.
Labasa had their star player Apisai Rabaua sent off in the second spell after a punching incident.
Rabaua was the player of the tournament for Labasa in the Fiji Primary Schools IDC which they won in Lautoka last month.
The result did not mean much to both teams who will face each other in the the final this afternoon.
Ba is aiming to make it four titles in a row.
Ba coach Timoci Seru said they were on track to defend the title.
In another match, Lautoka and Navua played to a one-all draw.
