Defending Champions Sharma’s Investment (USA) Labasa is out of the 2020 Punjas Battle of the Giants tournament as they drew their final group match 1-1 against Go Fry Nasinu.

Labasa needed a win to go through to the semifinal.

Nasinu are still in contention to qualify for the semifinal as they have to wait for the result of the Ba-Suva match at 2pm.

If Ba beats Suva, Nasinu qualifies with Ba.

Labasa’s goal was scored by Ilisoni Lolaivalu in the 18th minute of the first half.

Labasa’s Captain Akuila Mateisuva also missed a penalty to double Labasa’s lead.

The northerners led 1-0 at half-time.

Mateisuva fouled Nasinu’s Marlon Tahioa and Nasinu were awarded a penalty.

Jasnit Vikash made no mistakes and equalized for Nasinu.

Vikash says there is a lot of unity within the team.

Labasa coach Ronil Lal says Labasa made a lot of mistakes in the match which cost them the match.
