Lautoka holds Ba, wins CVC Series

Lautoka won the Champion vs Champion title for the second time today after holding Ba to a goal-less draw at Churchill Park.

The Blues after registering a 1-0 win in the first leg of the CVC Series on Friday night just needed a draw today while the Men In Black had to win by two clear goals.

Despite missing star midfielder Zibraaz Sahib to a hamstring injury, the Kamal Swamy coached side featured strongly and looked better in both halves while Ba once again failed in the goal-scoring department and failed to utilize its chances in front of the goalmouth.

Lautoka last won the Pillay Garments sponsored CVC title in 2009 after beating Ba and Navua in the three-team format competition.

The Sugar City boys walked away $5000 richer while Ba received $2500.
