In reply, Komo chased down the target after losing only two wickets and captain Talvindar was their top scorer with 36 not out.

Association vice-president, Alex Konrote said Komo could force its way into the Premier grade next year if it continued its winning streak. In other matches, Moce II defeated Ono-i-Lau by 35 runs; Police beat Suva Grammar Old Boys (SGSOB) to clinch its first win of the season while the match between Covenant Brothers and Nasaqalau was called off with eight overs to play because of poor light.

"SGSOB batted first and were eight for 103 after 20 overs. Police chased and passed that score after 13 overs."

In the last match of the day, Covenant Brothers batted first and scored five for 111 in their 20 overs with Fiji 7s captain Osea Kolinisau making an appearance in the match.

"Featuring for Covenant Brothers with 31 runs was long time Suva, Lau and Fiji squad member in the late 1980s and early 1990s Mijieli.

"Nasaqalau chased and managed 75 runs with the loss of six wickets and with eight overs to spare, the game was called off because of poor light.

"After discussion with the captains it looks like a rematch will be played on January 4 between these two teams."
