NAKAVU One leads the Lautoka Cricket Association club competition at the halfway mark.

The club from Nadi remains unbeaten in the competition.

Last Saturday, Nakavu One thrashed Naseqalau by 77 runs.

Nakavu One won the toss and elected to bat. The side was all out for 113 runs.

Former Fiji under-19 rep Tauyesa Vakarau top scored with 19 runs. Tu Waqa added to the tally with 16 runs.

In reply Naseqalau was all out for 37 runs with none of their players reaching double figures.

Lautoka Knights recorded their first win in the competition after beating Nakavu Two by 78 runs.

The Knights batted first and scored 111 runs for the loss of five wickets.

Vaibhav Kapadia top scored with 28 runs. Viral Vagh chipped in with 25 runs.

In reply, Nakavu Two was all out for 33 runs.

In another match Danam Fiji lost to Moce West by 31 runs.

Moce West batted first and scored 98 runs. In reply Danam was bowled out for 67 runs.

Tournament umpire Alvin Kumar said Nakavu One had stamped their mark as the favourites after the first round.

Kumar said the side had picked up the most bonus points.

"Nakavu One is certainly the team to beat going into the second round," he said.

"They have been consistent with their all-round performance. Moce West is another strong team which is unbeaten in the last three games.

"The Knights won their very first game and it will be interesting to see if they maintain their form in the next game.

"Nakavu Two with the inclusion of the female players put up a brave fight against the Knights by staying at the crease for almost 15 overs.

"Naseqalau has some good bowlers but will have to improve on their batting if they want a top two finish."

Nakavu One leads the competition with 129 points and is followed by Moce West with 97 points, Danam with 80 points, Knights with 72 points, Naseqalau with 44 points and Nakavu Two with 30 points.
