Fiji U20 goalkeepeer helps Ba beat Nadi in national league clash

DEFENDING champions Ba moved up to third position on the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League points table after beating Nadi 3-0 at Govind Park yesterday.

The 4R Electrical Men in Black team put on a strong performance to maintain its unbeaten run in the competition.

Fiji under-20 goalkeeper Misiwani Nairube made his debut for Ba and played gallantly pulling off some good saves.

Nadi looked disjointed with star striker Samuela Drudru heavily marked by the Ba defenders.

Ba coach Yogendra Dutt said it was good result after playing in the competition after a long time.

Dutt praised young Misiwane for a grand debut.

"After the Oceania Champions League we have come back to the local scene and the boys have done well," he said.

"We did not have any choice but to start Misiwani because Epeli Codro is on a match ban after copping two yellow cards. It was a great show by Misiwane filling in the vacuum at this level."

Avinesh Suwamy blasted the ball to the back of the net from 25 metres late in the first half. Ba led 1-0 at the break.

Jone Vesikula's drive in the 52nd minute went in after a deflection off a Nadi defender.

Replacement Maciu Dunadamu made it 3-0 in the 75th minute nodding Suwamy's free kick past Nadi goalkeeper Vereti Dickson.

Nadi coach Kamal Swamy said lack of fitness proved to be their downfall.

Swamy said the result was disappointing.

"The boys have been coming late to training," he said.

"Sometime they have not attended training because of overtime work. In the second half we gave up."
