LIONS ROAR IN THE RAIN

Labasa, Navua win IDC titles

- By ZANZEER SINGH

LABASA walked away $25,000 richer after defeating Suva 1-0 in extra time during the Courts Inter District Championsh­ip premier division title at Prince Charles Park in Nadi last night. Solomon Islander Dennis Ifunaoa, who came as a replacemen­t, proved to be the star for the Babasiga Lions scoring the winner in the first minute of the extra 30 minute spell after the match was locked nil-all after the 90 minute duration. Heavy rain and driving wind caused a havoc for both teams as they failed to get the ball beyond the goal line because of the water logged pitch. Suva received $6000 as the runner-up prize purse. Navua beat Nadroga 1-0 in the senior division final to make it back to back titles. Navua collected $7500 while Nadroga got $2500.
