Sport: Ba on brink of O-League playoffs

11:18 am on 11 April 2014

Fiji football champions Ba moved to the top of Group C with a crushing 4-0 victory over closest rivals Tafea to move within touching distance of a spot in the Oceania Champions League semi finals.

The home side needed an own goal to break the deadlock three minutes into the second half before Maciu Dunadamu doubled their advantage in the 51st minute.

Two late goals added some polish to the scoreline as Ba moved three points clear in the Group standings with one game to play.

In the other match, New Caledonia's Magenta and Hekari United from Papua New Guinea drew 2-2, effectively ending their bids for the semi-finals.
