Lautoka bagged, perhaps its biggest win against Ba when they thumped the Men in Black 3-0 at Govind Park in their National League fixture at Govind Park this afternoon.

Goals to sublime forward Kamal Hassan and captain courageous Valerio Nawatu in the first spell and one to Jone Vono Jnr in the second half was enough to seal the Blues win.

"It is sweet revenge indeed for us," said Lautoka President Shalendra Prasad.

"We lost to Ba in the final of the Battle of teh Giants at home, and today we defeat them in their home ground."

"Its not easy doing that against a class outfit like Ba," Prasad said

Prasad said the whole drama surrounding the sacking of its head coach Dennis Singh and the resignation of manager Karuna Pillay this week didn't dampen the Blues spirit as they took to the Men In Black this afternoon.

He said the team had been training under the guidance of fitness trainer Lemeki Ciri this week who has also been playing the part of coach in the absence of Singh.

Prasad said the team dedicated the win to their captain Nawatu who welcomed the birth of his first child at the Lautoka hospital.

"We would like to dedicate this win to a new father in the team; our captain Valerio Nawatu who welcomed the birth of his baby boy and first child."

"We also dedicate the win to all fathers as we commemorate father's day in Fiji,"

Meanwhile in other games Nadi beat Rewa 2-1, Suva was held to a 1-1 draw by Tavua and Labasa trounced Nadroga 5-1 to atine for their loss to Lautoka on Friday night.
