Labasa was determined in the second-half, however, this wasn’t enough as their opponent added another goal just after two minutes when play resumed.

Our Babasiga women tried to get back in the game but this wasn’t possible when the New Caledonian side scored two more goals in the 65th and 67th minutes.

After multiple attempts, Labasa pulled one back in the 75th minute thanks to Unaisi Tuberi.

The result leaves Coralie Bretegnier’s side top of the standings with six points meaning victories over Kiwi FC on Thursday and Koloale FC on Saturday would clinch the title.

For Labasa, it’s a case of what might have been.

They narrowly lost their second match conceding a last-minute goal against Koloale FC and had their chances early on today when Sofi Diyalowai and Shanyal Sindhika both had shots on target.

Labasa will face Hekari AS United on Saturday at 5 pm.
