The Ba Football team came out firing in their final pool match of the Vodafone Fiji Fact to dethrone defending Champions Rewa 3-1 at Churchill Park.
Both teams just needed a draw to advance to the semifinal but the Men in Black proved too strong to qualify as Group B pool winners.
Saula Waqa, Shazeel Ali and Ratu Dau scored a goal each for Ba while Gabrieli Matanisiga scored the lone goal for Rewa.
Ba’s win favoured Nadi as they followed as runners-up from that pool.
Nadi held Nasinu 1-1 earlier today.
Lautoka has already qualified from Group A and the second team is still yet to be decided from this pool.
Labasa hammered Tavua 8-1 to keep its chances alive and if Suva loses to Lautoka in the final pool match, then Labasa will go through as runners-up to Lautoka.
Suva just needs a draw against Lautoka to qualify for the semifinal.
