Labasa outplays Ba in FACT playoff

IT was sweet revenge for the Labasa soccer side when they thrashed Ba 3-0 in the third-fourth playoff of the Vodafone Fiji FACT in Nausori yesterday.

After losing by the same scoreline to the Men in Black in pool stages last week, the Babasiga Lions bounced back to hammer the westerners in their final attempt at redemption.

Labasa went down 1-2 to Suva in the semi-finals on Saturday and were looking for a strong finish in the tournament.

Ba, who were favourites to win the title, were eliminated 2-0 by defending champions Nadi in the semi-final.

They too needed a win to give their fans something to cheer for, however it was not to be.

Disappointed with two consecutive losses, Ba coach Yogendra Dutt refused to comment on their 0-3 loss.

Labasa coach Bal Sanju Reddy said their players didn't lose focus in their last match of the tournament.

"We lost in pool play because we sent in our second string team but not today (yesterday)," he said.

"We didn't want our boys to lose focus and it was good they didn't after losing the semi-final.

"They concentrated on the match and came away with a win."
