After a bad start in the tournament, Labasa reached 2020 Inter-District Championship semi-finals. The Babasiga Lions arose from the ashes and the semi-final clash against current Vodafone Premier League leaders Rewa at ANZ Stadium was very exciting.
Rewa had many opportunities to open the scoreboard in the first half but they were not very luck on finishing. Forward Setareki Hughes was performing in a very good level at the right wing and Labasa had difficulties to deal with him.
Ratu Anare opened the scoreboard for Labasa in the 43rd minute after a free kick taken by a teammate. Anare’s shot bounced on a defender and Rewa’s goalkeeper Simione Tamanisau could not save it as the Babasiga Lions took the lead.
Rewa fought hard to equalize but they did not manage to find the net. At the final whistle, the score was 1-0 in favour of Labasa. You can check the highlights of this match by clicking here.
