BOG awaits new champion
July 28, 2012 8:00 pm
The final day of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants is here where Churchill Park will crown a new champion this afternoon.
Ba takes on Labasa in the final at 3pm.
The Men in Black last held the BOG title in 2009 while a win for the Babasiga Lions would be extra special having last won the tournament in 1997.
FBC Sports reporter Shalveen Chand who is in Lautoka adds there is much to look forward to, today.
“It’s also going to be an important day as the Fiji FA Board of Control will make their announcements on the protests lodged not only on the transfer windows but from the national league. This will be announced at 10am. Fiji FA president, Rajesh Patel will also mention the partnership with the NZ-Fiji soccer association that the semi-finalists, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba and Labasa will compete in NZ in November for a Pacific Cup championship.”
Saturday’s semi-finals saw Labasa defeat Nadi 1-nil thanks to a goal from Apisalome Turuva.
While a double from Tuimasi Manuca saw Ba beat hosts, Lautoka 2-nil.
Lautoka will play Nadi in the 3rd and 4th play-off match at 12.30pm.
The premier final at 11am will see Nasinu taking on Taveuni.
In a decider match between Taveuni and Lami lastnight, the two sides drew 2-all with Taveuni progressing with a better points differential.
Other Saturday results – Taveuni defeated Vatukoula 3-1, while Nasinu beat Tailevu Naitasiri 2-nil.
