Nadi ends Labasa's unbeaten run

Labasa's 9-match unbeaten run in the Digicel Premier League came to an end today as the Babasiga Lions were beaten 1-0 by Nadi at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Midfielder Tuiba Batiratu netted Nadi's winner in the 65th minute after connecting well with a through pass from Captain William Valentine.

18-year-old Nadi goalie Tevita Ravia was the toast for the Jetsetters as he denied Labasa from scoring throughout the encounter.

The teams:

Labasa: Akuila Mateisuva (C), Iliesa Lino, Nemani Dolodai (Isikeli Ratucava), Siotame Kubu, Jone Naraba, Pawan Singh, Ratu Apenisa Anare (Marlon Tahioa), Lekima Gonerau, Ilaisa Vulimainavuso, Taniela Waqa, Rajiv Sharma
