9-man Labasa holds Ba

Ba and Labasa played to a 1-1 draw in their 2016 Pacific Cup fixture at Prince Charles Park in Nadi today to keep Pool A wide open.

Labasa led 1-0 at halftime with a 28th minute penalty to Ilisoni Logaivou.

The Babasiga Lions lost defender Lekima Gonerau to a red card early in the second half and Ba managed to draw the scores level through Fiji U20 rep Suliano Tawanakoro who neatly headed in a Meli Codro  corner kick.

Labasa was further reduced to nine players towards the end of the game following a second booking to Ilisoni Loloivalu.

With the result, both teams remain in contention for a semifinal berth.

Ba has 7 points after completing all its matches while Labasa has 4 points and will play NZFFI All Stars in the last match of the day later tonight.
