KOMO and Covenant Brothers continued their dream run in the Suva Cricket Association competition.

Both teams are new to the competition and won their respective promotion/relegation matches yesterday at Albert Park to move up from A-grade to the Premier grade.

Komo lost only one game in the A-grade while Covenant lost two and will now attempt to remain in the Premier grade for the rest of the season.

Association vice president Alex Konrote said Komo beat Ono-i-Lau by 62 runs while Covenant beat VICC by one run.

In the first match, Ono-i-Lau won the toss and sent in Komo to bat. In their allotted 20 overs, Komo lost eight wickets and scored 126 runs with Laisa Koroi contributing 57 runs.

Vilisoni Bale claimed three wickets for 15 runs.

In reply, Ono-i-Lau were all out for 64 runs in 18 overs with national under-19 rep Kau Kotoisuva top scoring with 21 runs.

"Komo were focused from the first ball and fielded really well," Konrote said.

In the second match, VICC batted first and lost nine wickets in their allotted 20 overs and scored 104 runs.

"For VICC Australian volunteer Mark scored 27 runs and Covenants top bowler in the match was 13-year-old Malay Sen who took three wickets for 16 runs.

"In the second innings, Covenant lost three quick wickets and looked to remain in the A-grade.

"But they won it with one run on their last wicket with only one ball to spare."

Sen scored the final three runs on the second last ball to give Covenant the win.

"Their fifth batsman, 16-year-old Delaimatuku Sokoiwasa who is in the Fiji U17 team, was not out with 28 runs.

"So both matches were considered upsets since the two teams that won were new to the competition and were from the bottom grade."
