The Ba U19 Football team is still in the hunt to win the Vodafone U19 Youth League 2019 Western Zone.
The Timoci Seru-coached side registered an impressive 3-0 win over neighbours Lautoka in their eighth round of match played at the Tilak High School ground in Lautoka.
Ba rep Simione Nabenu was the star for his side scoring a hat-trick in the encounter and helping the Boys in Black maintain its lead on the points table with 21 points.
Current reps like Nabenu and Shaneel Narayan with national U17 reps Mohammed Nabeel and Rahul Naresh are some of the experienced players in the side.
In the Southern division, Rewa currently leads the zonal competition with 13 points after playing five matches while Labasa leads the Northern Zone with 27 points after playing ten matches.
Rewa is the defending champion of the Vodafone U19 Youth League after winning the final playoffs held at Fiji Football Association Academy grounds in Ba last year
