BA defeated Jacks Nadi 4-0 in the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giant semi-final at Lautoka’s Churchill Park this afternoon.

Strikers Saula Waqa and Samuela Nabenia scored two goals each to earn their team a ticket in the final against Suva tomorrow.

Ba outclassed the jetsetters in all facets of the game and dominated possession and territory.

The men-in-black displayed structured football and well-controlled ground passing game that disrupted Nadi’s defensive line forcing them to commit mistakes.

Nadi tried its best to counter Ba’s onslaught but to no avail, and instead continued to concede penalties.

The jetsetters were reduced to 10 men after Afraz Ali was red-carded in the second spell.

Ba continued to apply pressure but missed out many scoring opportunities.

Ba will face Suva in the final at 3pm.
