Lautoka is now just a win away from successfully retaining the IDC title after beating Nadi 3-1 in the first semifinal of the 2018 Courts IDC at the ANZ Stadium.

Nadi took the lead in the 25th minute of the first half after Rusiate Matarerega took advantage of Lautoka goalkeepers mistake and kicked the ball in an empty goal mouth.

Nadi led 1-0 at half time.

Lautoka came strong in the second half and Jone Vesikula scored two quick goals through set pieces.

This happened when Nadi's Rusiate Matarerega was out of the field nursing an ankle injury and Nadi was temporarily playing with 10 players.

Benjamin Totori scored the third goal for Lautoka after mesmerizing the Nadi defenders with his footwork and dribbled past Nadi goalkeeper, Vereti Dickson.

Lautoka will now face the winner of the Labasa-Suva match in the IDC final.
