MOCE II successfully retained the Perpetual Cup in the Suva Cricket Association weekly competition yesterday.
The holders beat Nasaqalau by four wickets in their first defence of the title since winning it from Yadrana last week.
Challengers Nasaqalau, one of the two new teams in the competition, batted first and managed 124 for 7 in their 20 overs at Albert Park.
Savenaca Ledua was their top scorer with 30 followed by Vakarewa Kabau on 27.
In reply, Moce II reached the target in just 18 overs with four wickets to spare. Akapusi Ledua was their top scorer with 48 runs.
Association president Adriu Misiki said challenge matches had become interesting to watch.
"In the past, Army kept winning the title when it was on the line but now it's different," he said.
"The title has changed hands twice since Army lost it to Yadrana and then the following week, Yadrana lost it to Moce II."
Misiki said seven more challenge matches remained in the competition this season.
"Maybe the title could change hands again as the season progresses," he said.
In other matches yesterday, Yadrana beat Oneata in a close encounter.
Oneata batted first and were all out for 85 runs in 20 overs. In reply Yadrana reached the target with their last two batsmen in the 20th over.
Moce I thrashed Suva Grammar Old Boys by 172 runs. Moce batted first and were all out for 196 runs. In reply, Grammar, the other new team in the competition, were all out for only 24 runs.
Police beat Ono-i-Lau by six runs. Police batted first and were all out for 76 runs and in reply Ono fell short as they were all dismissed for 70 runs.
