Ba drubs T/Naitasiri in pool match

Ba futsal created a huge upset beating a tough Tailevu Naitasiri by 4-1 in group B of the 2021 Digicel Futsal IDC at the Vodafone Arena in Suva today. 
Kartik Sami scored the opening goal for the men-in-black in the first few minutes of the match but Suva rep Merrill Nand came of the match and slotted in the equaliser for Tailevu Naitasiri.
The match intensified as Tailevu Naitasiri’s Merrill Nand was kicked down and they were awarded a free kick which Kavitesh Pal took but was beautifully headed away by Ba goalkeeper. 
Coming off the bench, Lautoka midfielder Malakai Rakula, Krishneel Kumar and Ba captain Aisea Codro took powerful shots which defeated T/Naitasiri goalkeeper for a 4-1 lead at the breather. 
The second stanza of the match intensified as Ba's Simione Nabenu received a yellow card for frequent foul play while T/Naitasiri went down to four men after goalkeeper Mohammed Khan was awarded a red card for kicking down a Ba player. 
T/Naitasiri was awarded a penalty after Ramzan Khan was kicked down by Ba captain Codro but Ba goalkeeper Ravinesh Anand Singh caught the ball in hand.  
Ba will meet neighbors Lautoka in their second pool match at 7.30pm tomorrow.
