BA beat Labasa 3-2 in a nail-biting match during the Fiji Sun - Skipper Tuna National Football League competition at Subrail Park yesterday.

The Men in Black drew first blood in the 34th minute of the first half through Avinesh Swami and they led 1-0.

Three minutes before the end of the first half, Maciu Dunadamu increased their lead to 2-0 by bagging another goal.

Labasa returned with high hopes in the second half as it managed to earn its first goal through a successful header by Apisalome Turuva.

However Ba responded through Abu Zahid as he managed to sneak the ball in the Labasa goal from a successful corner kick while his opponents stood stunned at the goalmouth.

Labasa edged closer as Sandeep Nair bagged another goal bringing points to 3-2 but time ran out on the side.

Ba managed to ward off the many futile attempts from the Labasa side until the final whistle.

Ba team manager Arvind Singh said despite it being a tough game he was happy with the side's performance.

Singh said they now looked forward to their next match against Suva.

Meanwhile Labasa coach Bal Sanju Reddy said that they would have to go back to the drawing board and polish up on the team's flaws.

Reddy said the team now looked forward to the Fiji FACT.
