Ba loses first game in Muslim soccer tournament

Maciu Malo
Saturday, April 19, 2014

BA suffered an upset 0-1 loss to Makoi in the opening pool game of the Fiji Muslim League soccer competition at Xavier College ground yesterday.

Laced with exciting young players, Makoi defenders stood tall in defence while their forwards outclassed their opponents in attack.

Makoi had many scoring opportunities but lacked the finishing touches, something they needed to improve on in the later stages of the competition.

Meanwhile, Lautoka rep Zibraz Sahib was the toast of the Islands Electric Lautoka side scoring a goal in their 3-1 win over Rarawai.

Sahib was also instrumental in Lautoka's other goals scored by Saiyaz Aziz and Auyaz Arun.

Lautoka's win has laid the platform for the remaining pool games as it sets its focus on winning the title.

The experience of Sahib and Nadroga rep Mohammed Taslim was a thorn in the opposition's side but the duo will be given a good run for their money against Sigatoka and Makoi later in the competition.

Lautoka Muslim sports president Hanif Sahib said he was happy with the outcome of the first game and he called on his players to lift their game in their remaining matches.

He said the side had conquered the first obstacle and the challenge was for the players to carry it on.
