A DOUBLE from Vodafone Fiji under-20 rep Antonio Tuivuna helped Suva beat Ba 2-1 to finish third in the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants tournament at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Tournament favourites Suva and Ba lost to Rewa 1-2 and Lautoka 4-5, respectively, in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Both teams used most of its reserved players for the third place playoff.

Ba scored the opener midway in the opening spell through Fiji U20 striker Saula Waqa to head into the break with a slender 1-0 lead.

Suva came back stronger in the second spell and their continuous pressure at the Rewa goalmouth paid off when Tuivuna equalised in the 67th minute.

Ten minutes later, Tuivuna caught Ba goalkeeper Jone Sorolo off guard when he lobbed the ball over the Ba defence for a 2-1 lead.

Ba tried hard to equalise but Suva stood tall in defence and held on to their lead to settle for $1500.

Suva: Tomasi Uculoa, Waisake Navunigasau, Sahil Dave, Sakaraia Naisua, Kolinio Sivoki, Nickel Chand, Ravinesh Singh (C), Leone Damudamu, Antonio Tuivuna, Inia Boko, Ulaiasi Tamanisau

Ba: Jone Sorolo (C), Avinesh Suwamy, Ronil Kumar, Jone Vesikula, Manasa Nawakula, Abbu Zahid, Remueru Tekiate, Narendra Rao, Saula Waqa, Laisenia Naioko, Aisea Codro
