Tiwa hatrick sees Ba bounce back

By Sunil Sharma

Malakai Tiwa scored a hatrick to see Ba overcome hosts Savusavu and pull back three points on their Vanua Levu tour after losing 1-0 to Labasa last night.

Tiwa scored one in the first half and added two in the second spell to help Ba stay in the race to defend their National League crown.

“After last night’s loss this game against Savusavu was very important. The win ensures we stay in the race for the league title once again,” Ba manager Arvin Singh said.

While happy with the win, Singh voiced concerns over the state of the pitch at Ganilau Park calling on Fiji FA to look into it.

“The ground condition was not up to the standard and it affected our style of play.”

Ba now have 25 points form 11 games and move to second spot on the points standings behind Nadi who are just ahead by two points.

The loss is Savusavu’s third in 13th appearances and they remain at bottom of the table with three points.
