STRIKER Mavileko Nakama scored a hat-trick to guide Ba to an 8-1 whitewash of Nadroga during the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League clash at Govind Park yesterday.

The Men in Black were back to their best form after going down to Nadi 2-1 more than a week ago.

With the win Ba maintains its third spot on the points table.

Samuela Nabenia, Shamil Rao and Manasa Nawakula scored a goal each while the Stallions conceded two own goals.

The hosts led 3-0 at halftime.

Ba Football Association secretary Iliaz Khan maintained that there were no problems within their camp following the suspension of coach Yogendra Dutt and manager Arvin Singh.

"The team officials, players and executives are all united," Khan said.

"There are no problems. Ba has a common goal of displaying soccer to the best ability and we are doing just that," he added.

Meanwhile Labasa and Rewa played to a 1-all draw at Subrail Park.
