RATISH Lal led his team to victory at the Suva Bowling Club Triples competition on Saturday.

Teaming up with Abdul Kalim and Martin Fong, Lal's team defeated Litia Tikoisuva's team 14-13 in the final.

Competition official Michael Ng said the final was a tough battle which went on late into the afternoon.

"It was a neck and neck battle all the way to the end," he said.

"Lal's team featured experienced national reps while Litia had some new bowlers in her team."

Nine men's teams and seven women's teams competed in the combined tournament.

Ilisoni Vakatalai's team won section A, Lal's team won section B on a countback, Tikoisuva's team won section C and Joe Lepolo's team won section D.

Lal's team beat Vakatalai's team in the first semi-final and Tikoisuva's team beat Lepolo's team in the other.

Ng said the competition was a build-up towards the National Triples competition which would be hosted by the Suva Bowling Club.

"It will be the first nationals of the year for us and everybody is looking forward to it.

"We have been having regular competition for the past four weeks building up towards the National Triples meet."
