Labasa is the first football team to lift a trophy in Fiji this year by defeating Suva in the Champion vs Champion Series (CVC), a tournament contested between the winner of Vodafone Premier League and the winner of Battle of the Giants.

After a draw in the first leg of the tournament, Solomon Islander forward Marlon Tahioa and legendary Taniela Waqa found the net once each to help their side to beat Suva by 2-1 and to bring the CVC glory to Labasa for the second straight year. Tahioa recently joined his new team, but he is already being a key player for Babasiga Lions. He was one of the top scorers of the tournament along with Suva’s Remueru Tekiate with two goals each.

With this victory, Labasa reached their fourth CVC title. Fijian giants Ba remain as the biggest winners of the tournament with twenty trophies.
