Rewa, Labasa in FACT final

Rewa and Labasa will meet in the 2015 Vodfone Fiji FACT final at Prince Charles Park this afternoon in their second meeting of the tournament.
The two met in the final once back in 2011 in Lautoka where the Delta Tigers triumphed 1-0 and had also broke the dominance of the western teams.
Three-years on, the Delta Tigers worked wonders to beat traditional champs Ba 3-2 in the semifinal to book a final spot against the Babasiga Lions.
Labasa earlier on edged Lautoka 3-2 in another nail-biting semis.
Meanwhile, in another cracking second semis where the game went right to the wire, Rewa fought back to topple Ba in superb fashion 3-2.
Epeli Saukuru had opened the scoring for the Reds to lead 1-0 before Alvin Singh scored minutes from normal time to force a draw and extra time.
Ba claimed the lead 2-1 in first half of extra time through Malakai Rakula but Rewa bounced back to draw level via a Zameel Hassan scorcher.
And a minute from the end of second half of extra spell, Zameel Hassan side-footed home the winner to guide the Marika Rodu coached side to the final.
The two losing semifinalists Ba and Lautoka will feature in the third and fourth playoffs starting at 1pm Sunday.
The main final between Labasa and Rewa is scheduled for 3pm.
