THE Lautoka football side defeated Ba 2-nil in the feature match of day one at the Courts Inter District Championship in Suva tonight.

After a goal less first spell, Lautoka pumped up on attack in the second spell when Rewa import Sairusi Nalaubu scored with a pile driver from the right hand edge of the Ba box.

Solomon islander Benjamin Totori then scored the goal of the day after dribbling past Ba stopper Josaia Ratu and send the Lautoka fans into frenzy mode.

Lautoka’s win has sent out a strong message to the other teams as the Blues displayed fast-paced soccer and entertained the 5000 or so spectators present.
