Ba was the first on the board after 30 minutes when Solomon Islander Darold Kakasi tapped the ball in following a lapse of concentration in the penalty box by Lautoka defenders.

However, just five minutes later top marksman Sairusi Nalaubu connected with a corner kick and timed it perfectly through a beautiful header.

The match was locked at 1-all at the break.

Lautoka extended its lead in the 64th minute when Sitiveni Cavuilagi scored.

Just when everything was going Lautoka’s way, Suliano Taukeinikoro equalized via a penalty close to fulltime.
