SUVA striker Joseph Mishra was the toast of the Cuvu team scoring a hat-trick in the side's 6-0 win over Votualevu in the Sanatan soccer IDC quarter-final at Prince Charles Park yesterday.

Mishra's experience and skill was a handful for the opposition as he helped his side secure a semi-final spot.

The former Labasa rep combined well with Alvin Pratap up front as they kept the opposition scoreless.

Pratap scored two goals while Nathan Kumar added his name to the score sheet to give his team the victory.

Mishra will now battle with his former teammates and Labasa reps Samal Prasad and Vikrant Chandra in a do or die semi-final.

The combination of Prasad and Chandra helped Labasa advance to the semi-final thumping Drasa 6-2 in quarter-final.

Other goals for Labasa were scored by Ajesh Prasad, Ashneel Chand, Vikash Prasad and Vijendra Prasad.

Tournament organiser Arvind Narayan said it would be interesting to witness Mishra battle against his former teammates.

He said Mishra was a standout performer in the quarter-final but he would face stiff competition in the semi-final.

"Mishra's performance in the quarter-final will make him a marked man in the semi-final," said Narayan.

"His opponents also know his game well and it will be interesting to see how Mishra rises to the challenge.

"It will be a titanic battle as both teams were impressive in the quarter-finals."

The semi-final and the final will be held today.
